GITTENS THOUGHTS FROM WITHIN: A Collection of Poems by Daughter and Father, Debbie and Lionel Gittens
By: Debbie V. Gittens-Hans
About the Book
Gittens Thoughts from Within shares the inner thoughts of a father-daughter duo and their relationship with God and His creation as well as their relationships with others, their family and friends, and the events that have shaped their lives through poetry. Their poems permit others to see within their worlds about the philosophies and aspects of life that mean the most to them. Although written at different times and different locations, father and daughter living oceans apart, it is a glimpse that love and brotherly love are vital for relationships worldwide and spanning through the eras. And that no matter where we come from, or when, there are commonalties between us all, a desire for hope, bonding, and eternal peace.
