This gritty and thought provoking collection of verses provides us with the honest story of an ordinary man, perhaps just like you, plagued by questions of existence and some of the many contradictions that face us all as we experience the challenges of the 21st Century. The underlying story, which you can follow through the development of these poems, is largely autobiographical, though the poet’s empathy with the less fortunate and his concerns with the exploitation of our planet and of humanity itself, is well documented in some of his poems.
As you read through this collection and become the narrator, it is easy to feel that these eloquent verses could also have been your own – if only you had the time and tenacity to put them on the page. It is his hope that he might inspire others to pen their thoughts and shape them into verses. For him it has been a catharsis.
