When I first composed this book I wrote a long introduction trying to explain my reason for publishing. As I began the publishing process and moved forward with actually finalizing my dream of having a published book of poetry, I believe I found the perfect words to explain. The title of this book speaks for its self. It is a raw and uncensored view into my soul. My book begins with poetry during a period of my life when I felt had no purpose and it ends with a beautiful feeling that life truly is too short.
When you read this book you don’t need to know me personally. Just imagine a sixteen year-old boy venturing out into the vast and hungry world alone and na?ve. Experience the emotions that run through his body and allow the realizations he faces to calm you again. Watch him grow from a dark rebellious teenager into a God fearing respectable young man.
