Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This book is a presentation of a collection of work meant to inspire, provoke thought, motivate one to action and create dialog. This book is also the next step in a movement to spotlight the serious issue of illiteracy in our society. With the digital revolution now part of our daily lives, the written word and the vitality of reading is under attack and facing extinction. The Cool represents the youth, the challenges they face and a poetic guide to overcome the ever increasing pressure to just be a kid. The Cold is my personal views on how society is currently functioning in a way that is less than optimistic. This view ironically is not so much personal but more less a snapshot of what the late great Marvin Gaye might ask What s Going On? The Wise is just that, wisdom. A Poetic Expression of Love, Spirituality, and Hope.Wisdom is intuition and the innate ability to follow God s path and not your own. Thus, A Poetic Commentary as it is aptly titled; to describe from an artistic point of view; current events that are shaping, changing, growing, and ruining are society in the 21st Century. Enjoy.
