A fluent compilation of poems exposing the many societal and moral dimensions of the world we live in today. Within the book, Julius Gunser Karnwie shares with his readers the notion that people of every walk of life "struggle to achieve happiness, success, and freedom." Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs. Poems such as "Wrongs" and "Judgment Day" depict the poet's view of how morality and religion intertwine and cultivate the expression of everyone's true face of good or evil. Moreover, the poet includes verses of love's many shapes and facades. He explores this phenomenon of love in a poem appropriately entitled, "This Thing Called Love" followed by a piece that eloquently yields a glimpse into his "Life Like a Liquid." Mr. Karnwie's poems are a refreshing work of art and a pleasure for any reader who appreciates a fresh and keen perspective on life, love, and society. The poet insightfully presents his audience with an understanding that we live in "a world where the ever-present love of God avails to see us through these challenges of man."
