VERBALIZIONS OF ENLIGHTENMENT
Verbalizions of Enlightenment is far more than one might expect from a book of poetry. It's a spiritual piece of art. In addition to its inspirational purpose, the author also sculpted this book to be an exhibition of artistry and creativity. It contains soul-stirring stories and powerful messages poetically conveyed through the eyes of the writer. He is able to capture the average person's feelings of wonder, curiosity, fear, abandonment, confusion and disappointment and put them into words in a way that provides understanding to life's everyday struggles, while walking the reader through his own healing process. It doesn't hide behind extensive imagery or far-fetched imagination. It's not confined to one group of people and it does not need permission to tell the shocking truth. It addresses society's common escapes of life's troubles, such as drugs, alcohol, sex, and materialism and their consequences. The poems appear simple enough to be understood by the average non-reader, while at the same time, containing enough depth and hidden complexity to be read over and over by those who seek deeper significance.
