An ambitious young Poet and Spoken Word Artist. Student of Philosophy, Religion, Love, Health & Life. In search of the "Simple Truth of Living" - the basic applicable underlying truths in all philosophy and religion and abstract thought which ultimately benefits human existence.
Sorrow, like that subtle dagger conquering the sword, owes its strength to stealth. It is a brooding thing. A bleeding depression like the lonely light of the moon ever searching for the waking few who enjoy basking in its gloomy embrace. Truth be told we all bathe in its hollow light from time to time. When lover’s leave, when family flees, when death seethes….we all bask in the midnight gloom
Youth vs. World is the battle played by chess pieces on a board. The mind is the King, the spirit is the Bishop, the flesh is the Knight and the emotional wall is the rook. Every trend of thought, like pawns, explores the world around in hope of achieving knighthood...
Lost in a cacophony of infatuation, love and yearning, one poet seeks to capture with pen and ink the deepest desires of the lonely heart. Like a child drunken by first love's kiss, he recites every detail and every notion learned, every feeling, every craving and every wishful whim of bliss in harmonious adolescent love.
If you like romantic poetry without erotica then this is definitely for you
"Mortals die, immortals fade before their glare;
to venture into No-Man's-Land nobody should dare"
The above is an example of the powerful lines awaiting readers in this collection of poems. These are all powerful pieces with ranging topics. Earth 2.0 and "To the soldiers" were two of my favorites. I only wish this were longer but it's free so I can't complain much on that
Some pieces are weaker than others. However many of the pieces in this collection set the standard very high. The title is quite enticing and the poems within reflect that idea beautifully. My complaint is that there are multiple untitled poems which makes it difficult to reference or quote properly. All in all, what I enjoyed most would be the topics written about in this collection. They are beautifully dark and powerful.
