It would be rare for a person to have gone through their
teenage years without having experienced an infatuation that seemed like real
love, or being riddled by angst about the futility of life, or having known
their emotions intensely to the point that everything appears meaningless.
Poetry is the universal expression of the feelings that want to break free.
These poems reflect the highs and lows that will find identification with every
young person who took a deep breath in the midst of life’s most stormy years.
The writer has chosen to stay anonymous because the poems
reflect a universal journey. The author lays no claim to the thoughts as they
are part of the collective unconsciousness that binds living things together.
The compilation portrays how poetry can be a person’s best friend, philosopher,
and guide throughout his/her life.
