“WHAT IF?” - a thought-provoking poem that encourages you to challenge the limitations of life from Kyli Santiago’s sophomore poetry book, “An Inspired Poet.” Every aspect of life and the way we are told we should live it, has been created and defined by someone else – including what is right and what is wrong; what is success and what is failure. “What if?” challenges you to step out of the box and define life on your own terms. By asking you questions that help you to imagine what your life would be like if you actually took actions to change it by living it differently. This could be the key to unlock the door to true happiness and fulfillment.

ABOUT AN INSPIRED POET:
Staying true to form, Kyli Santiago’s second book of poetry “An Inspired Poet” is deeply insightful, thought-provoking and definitely does not disappoint! Having overcome her thirty-plus year battle with depression, we join Kyli in the next stage of her journey to mental and emotional freedom. No longer living in the darkness of mental impairment, the poet undergoes a true spiritual awakening - and the pieces in this wonderfully thoughtful and perceptive collection will give you the chance to experience this awakening right along with her. Now of clearer perception and sounder mind, Kyli is free to ask questions about life and the higher forces that govern it – the answers that she accounts through her poetry will definitely intrigue you and spur you into deeper thought about your own life’s journey. Reading “An Inspired Poet” will not only entertain you, but it will make you think more critically and even alter the way you perceive, approach and experience your own life. It is an absolutely powerful collection of poetry that is sure to change you!

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN POETRY AND MUSIC:
As we all know, there has always been a historic connection between poetry and music. Through the ages, much poetry was performed to music. Music is definitely poetry. And vice-versa. When examined more critically, the art forms of music and poetry are almost synonymous: consider that a poem evokes, passion, love, hate, anger, loss, sorrow. Music, even without lyrics can bring across the same emotions. When you add lyrics or poetry to the music, a story emerges - which then enhances the meaning and emotion, making it a song. Poetry like music exists to allow for the expression of human emotions and very often, people can connect through music or poetry by understanding a shared feeling that is otherwise difficult to express. Another similarity that exists between music and poetry, is that songs themselves have to be rhythmic. The same is true about the flow of a poem. Rhythm is what makes music as well as poetry. Poetry is about flow, rhythm, meaning and expression. Instrumental music expresses, flows and shows just as much emotion as music does with words.
