This book is just a reflection of my thoughts, feelings, and experiences as I walk through the complexity of life. Addressing everything from love to frustration, spirituality to sexuality, friendship and family to loneliness, this is an attempt to make a connection between myself and my readers. Through verses and metaphors, I create a voice for hidden emotions, frustrating circumstances or just simple unspoken thoughts. Although, all the poems in this book are not my personal experiences, most were inspired by some event, emotion, or thought and in some cases my imagination. So, I challenge you, take a moment, open the pages of this book, and open the pages to your own self conscious.
About the Author:
With a flare of versatility and directness, Reed, utilizes this combination to “tell it like it is.” It is his goal to be heard by capturing the attention of a worldwide audience through his work as a writer. Although he considers himself an amateur, he has been persuaded by admirers of his poetry to pursue his talents, thus giving birth to this book. With self-expression as the main focus, he hopes to generate self evaluation for those who try to understand his depth as a writer. Just as he was inspired by others, Reed, hopes to one day become the inspiration for someone else, as well, through the words of his poetry.
