New book is about done!

Okay, so my new book is about done. Yesterday I was contacted by my local newspaper that my book Unheard is going to be featured soon. Great timing!!

I was brainstorming recently and thought about making audio books available. Does anyone listen to those? It is a very time-consuming process, so I’d love to hear some feedback.

I’m Sorry I’m Your Daughter – Poetry by Susanna Hartigan

I’m sorry I’m Your daughter
Can’t seem to do the right
thing to please You
Never asked for anything
but still rejected and unaccepted
I’m sorry I’m Your daughter
Can’t be the mother You expect of me
and fearing the next thing done
will push You farther away
I’m sorry I’m Your daughter
You don’t really know me as a person
and I hurt because I can hear You
teasing and laughing at me
behind closed doors –
Your false faces reveal it all.
I’m sorry I’m Your daughter
Fatigued from over exertion,
yet hearing You mouth,
“Oh, what’s next?”
I’m sorry I’m Your daughter
Refusing to live up to double standards
because our worlds are different
and miles apart –
makes me think You hate me
somewhere inside –
just because
I am different.
