This poetry collection - One - records touching moments in my life, the sparkles of my thoughts. This project consists of twenty-one poems along with a table of contents, foreword, introduction, acknowledgements and notes. It is broken down into four different sections titled Hazy/Mist, Things Remembered, Hallucinating and Trigger. The title of the poetry collection was chosen as "one" because I wanted to convey that everyone's life is unique. Like the gambling game with fate, you'll never know what will happen in the next second. With specific rules of the usage of imagery, metaphors, and similes, and musical rhythms, my poetry style contains not only Chinese styles but also other Western free art forms.
