The Woman in Me

The Woman in Me
Item# ISBN: 978-0-8059-8917-5

by Denise L. Forde

This book was written because I believe the struggles of women in today’s world need a place in poetry. We have relationship problems, financial problems, love interests, joys of being female, and sadness at our losses. Because of our emotional strengths, we conquer life’s complex situations with a different spin than our male counterparts.

I hope I covered most of our concerns and touched bases with your heart. Thank you.


I was born in Manhattan in the Amsterdam Projects. Although I had a troubled childhood, I managed to grow up and eventually moved to the Bronx. There I made friends with my neighbors, who I believe had the rock of stability I needed in hard times. I am a single mom of three children, and I have two grandchildren. I fully understand a woman’s plight in today’s fast-paced, high-tech environment and how difficult it is to maintain a sense of balance.

Sometimes we just need someone to say. “Rest a while. You’ll be okay.”

I thank God for giving me the inspiration to write this book. I thank my friends, especially Marlene, for listening to my gripes, and I thank my neighbors for being the ears I needed. I thank my family, including Claudia and Dru, for supporting me through my struggles and accomplishments. And I thank you for letting me into your world.
