Summary of the Book:
A personal perspective of one individual’s battle with drug and alcohol addiction. Taking place in the 2000 while travelling the country trying to outrun the familiarity of the drug scene, the poet opens his soul and his notepad to journal the journey down a strange path towards recovery. One individual’s fall from grace while battling addiction, withdrawal, relapse, and pulling away from society as a whole.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have always loved that poetry is an art form of self-expression. The poet here uses it to deal with a rough time in life and shows even in the pain of addiction that something wonderful and beautiful can come from that time period in their life. I had to read these a couple of times but that is just how I read poetry it is not meant to be read just once. I could feel the moments of happiness, but the glimpse of pain and distance from the world in each line.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
