GooDbye A fabulous compilation of 31 poems which reveals only the finest piece of writing that can be found in 21st century literature. The poems which were composed and kept captive in the author?s personal diary will now be in print and available for all to decipher as well as enjoy. This skillfully written poetry is the result of profound thoughts and heart rendering feelings put from pen to paper after the author?s tragic loss of her mother, to whom the author dedicates this work of art to. The author hopes that the readers will find a part of themselves in her own tragedy and contentment by indulging in this book. In the author?s own words: ?My poetry is something unlike you have heard or read before because they are all very private, very familiar yet very unusual at the same time. I would depict my poetry as earnest, it is passion, it is love, it is pain, it is anger and it is everything we experience on a day-to-day basis, it is beyond doubt a concoction of multiple conceptions of who I am and who we are??

About Leyla Ok

See more books from this Author
Leyla Ok was born in the remote village of Tavla, Kayseri in Eastern Turkey. A year later she embarks on a journey with her family, having to move to the UK at only 18months old. Growing up in a traditional and disciplined middle-eastern family, Leyla, found that much of her passion for poetry rubbed off from her father, a keen reader and writer of poems as well as her great granddad, who has been known to write affecting poems in Farsi also. Poetry was definitely something which was passed onto her, as she describes the feeling as “…words just flow through my mind, as does blood through my veins, perhaps it is hereditary”.     Leyla is a maturing author and expects to publish more of her work in the near future. Her book titled GooDbye is her first publishing experience and so she is thrilled to be able to share what she feels is a piece of her with the readers.
