This book has a collection of poems that can show you there is always someone who understands. Someone who can relate or makes you think about a current situation in your life. I wrote this book to show a different side to life. I do not see life through rose colored glasses. I like to tell the real story. Some poems are based off of my own experiences in life while others are just about what I saw on the news that day. There is a poem in here for everyone. Even if you are not going through a bad time in your life you can relate to some of these poems. If any of these poems make you rethink something you said or did or even change your perspective on something, I have done my job. These poems show the world in a light that not many are used to seeing. I prefer to show people the world I always see. The life I have been living or the life I have grown used to being brought up in. This world can be an interesting and frustrating place. I wanted to make this book to show you and many others Life As I Know It.

This book is about a two-parent home with wonderful family, great family trips, family holidays, and family vacations-a family full of love and support. But the reality is just because the grass looks green doesn't mean it's always green. The reality is that this book shows the struggles that you face in a two-parent home which is equal to the struggles in a single-parent home. It's about understanding that your love doesn't always have to come from your mother. It's about how a father stepped in and became a supporting role that a mother should have played. It is how a father can become a girl's best friend and how a mother can become a girl's worst enemy. This book is about double standards. It's about giving and giving and never receiving. It's about looking to receive unconditional love and never receiving it. It's about doing all you can, and at the end of the day, it's still not enough.

"It's happening this second. Scientists are re-imagining and re-engineering the world forever. With brutal honesty and engaging story-telling, Michael Guillen gives us a clear-eyed look at a future that is already here. Consider this unsettling, brilliantly written, must-read book your official wake up call." -- ERIC METAXAS, #1 national bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy "Michael Guillen has tackled an important subject in The End of Life as We Know It... This book is a sobering look at where we could be headed. A fascinating read." -- DAVID LIMBAUGH, bestselling author of Jesus is Risen and The True Jesus In all aspects of life, humans are crossing lines of no return. Modern science is leading us into vast uncharted territory—far beyond the invention of nuclear weapons or taking us to the moon.Today, in labs all over the world, scientists are performing experiments that threaten to fundamentally alter the practical character and ethical color of our everyday lives. In The End of Life as We Know It: Ominous News from the Frontiers of Science, bestselling author and Emmy award winning science journalist Michael Guillen takes a penetrating look at how the scientific community is pushing the boundaries of morality, including: • Scientists who detached the head of a Russian man from his crippled, diseased body, and stitching it onto a healthy new donated body. • Fertility experiments aimed at allowing designer babies to be conceived with the DNA from three or more biological parents. • The unprecedented politicization of science – for example, in the global discussion about climate change that is pitting “deniers” against “alarmists” and inspiring Draconian legislation, censorship, and legal prosecutions. • The integration of Artificial Intelligence into communications and the economy. The End of Life as We Know It takes us into labratories and boardrooms where these troubling advances are taking place and asks the question no scientists seem to be asking: What does this mean for the future of humanity? PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR MICHAEL GUILLEN: “Guillen succeeds triumphantly…He writes with extraordinary grace and clarity.” — CHRISTOPHER LEHMANN-HAUPT, The New York Times “Guillen knows how to tell a story.” — Wall Street Journal “Michael Guillen is ‘Winsomely brilliant.’” — ERIC METAXAS, #1 national bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy “Michael Guillen bridges the seeming gap between science and faith better than anyone I know.” — CAL THOMAS, Syndicated and USA Today columnist/Fox News contributor

Mona was an eight-year old colored girl who was raised in Wisconsin during the 1950's. Her father was an electrician and her mother raised her and her siblings in a segregated environment. This book describes her life in a family that is trying to make ends meet in a post-world war two era. Mona is born prematurely because her mother is raped by a relative causing early labor. Despite her early entry into the world she survives to live in the oppressed world of an African American. She describes the family's journeys to the south to visit relatives in Georgia. During these visits she witnessed a lynching and learned that colored people in the south had to behave in an even more subservient manner. Her family is further disrupted when she finds out she has a half-brother. This book is unique because it is written from the perspective of a young eight year old colored girl. All the stories in this book are true but names have been changed to protect the identity of the family. The images evoked from her description of these life changing events compels the reader to vividly understand the experience of colored people during these difficult times.
