Have You Seen My Childhood: In Memory Of Michael Jackson is a sacred shrine written in hor of all the children of the world. Dedicated to the memory of Michael Jackson, this book started with a simple poem, Befallen Angel, which captures the essence of MJ's painful life rooted in childhood abuse, and later evolved into a full-fledged Poetry book for all abused children. Like MJ, the author, Alessandrina Lerner, was a victim of childhood abuse who had never experienced unconditional love until she embraced her own self-discovery. This Poetry book bears witness to this journey which takes us from the Growing Pains Alessandrina experienced as a child, through the Inner Reflections that started her on the path to recovery, all the way to a newly found Self-Mastery which has enabled her to explore dimensions of life unkwn to her before. This book is t just a Poetry book, it's the testimony of the epic journey a lonesome soul embraces to deliver herself from the hopeless fate of what she calls her Midnight childhood and find the elusive Essence of Love she had searched for her whole life. Armed with the poetic language of introspective imagery and beautifully adorned with colorful Art work made by the author's precocious daughter, Amandine Love Lerner, this book delivers a timeless message of love and forgiveness on the path to healing from childhood abuse, offering hope for all such victims to discover What It Is To Be Loved in the seemingly most unlikely place, i.e. at the very core of themselves. In the words of MJ, Heal the world, make it a better place for you and for me, and the entire human race... May this book echo the words of this beautiful soul into the heart of all that lives, so that all souls may realize their higher self and live a happy and wholesome life... 50% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to benefit abused children.

Alessandrina Lerner is the author of four books. All 3 of her Poetry books, The Essence of Love (Sep'09), Spiritual Metamorphosis (Feb'10) and Have You Seen My Childhood (Mar'10) are adorned with beautiful illustrations made by the author's daughter, a precocious 10-year old Artist, Amandine Love Lerner. Alessandrina's poetry does not only use the poetic imagery and innate musicality of words but also aspires to take the readers on a journey to the core of themselves through inspirational poems of a meditative nature. Alessandrina is also the author of a novel, Spiritual Enlightenment in the Age of Cybersex (Dec' 09), a comedic spiritual gem which introduces Spiritual teachings with humor and a real urban flavor, making them accessible to a modern, and maybe a little less spiritually inclined crowd. Alessandrina Lerner has been writing poetry since she was 8, and wrote her first short novel when she was 12. Though she left her childhood dreamworld, obtained an MBA in International Finance from French Ivy league University Paris IX- Dauphine, and went on to pursue a high profile career in the world of International Finance, Alessandrina never forgot her true love and kept cultivating a passion for writing all throughout, continuing to write poetry and short stories as a hobby, whenever time allowed. Traveling to over 55 countries in the context of her career, she fulfilled the explorative part of her dream, yet found herself seeking more meaningful experiences to further nourish her soul. Motherhood pushed her further in that direction, propping her to quit her job and start training with a Spiritual Indian Master to become a Yoga Therapist, now her primary occupation since 2001. Having grown increasingly passionate and talented in the Art of inspiring others through Yoga, Alessandrina decided to take it to the next level by going back to her roots and honoring her true essence by dedicating herself to writing. Since writing books seemed like the most logical step to disseminate the spiritual knowledge she has acquired on her journey, Alessandrina has decided to embrace her new path with love, dedication, and the greatest hope for the future. Alessandrina is currently working on a number of literary projects, including children books, a spiritual movie script, a Yoga manual, and sequels to her first novel. She has many other artistic projects in the pipeline, which she hopes to be able to fully dedicate herself to in the coming years.
