Overview

May I Only Leave Rose Petals is a composition of poetry about rediscovering the truth about one’s innate divinity in the face of great pain, darkness, fear, and separation. It is about coming Home. It is a journey to wholeness through nine main chapters—from “The Forgetting” to the “The Homecoming”. It is a catalyst to inspire, ignite, and lift people out of the darkness and into the light. It is about choosing love, again and again, to leave only rose petals.
