In this second volume of verses,
the author returns to the subject of morality and the benefits of
living a proper and respectable lifestyle. The collection is divided
into five books, focusing on the various aspects of subjects such as
sexuality, work ethic, and being happy. Written in a variety of styles,
meters, and rhyming schemes, the book contains hundreds of selections
and remains fresh and unique throughout. Each poem includes footnotes
that explain the poet’s choice in both vocabulary and grammar, making
it possible for teachers to use these poems as a means to both pass on
positive life messages or teach the artistry behind poetry. Affirming,
uplifting, and inspiring, this book will uplift readers looking for
daily guidance or motivation to do the right thing.
Immediately, the first thing that stands out in this collection are the footnotes provided at the end of each poem. Each one of these provides rare insight for the reader into the creative process, either to help discern the word choices that the poet made or to better grasp the symbolism or meanings beneath face value. Still, these notes are not the star compared to the positivity and wisdom relayed in each line of verse. The lyrical flourishes are combined with the sharing of first-hand reflections on things like the value of hard work or the necessary caution to not let technology rule lives, creating a product that is both artistic and informative. Going beyond the typical textbook format of daily affirmations or positive mantras, this book creates a new style of spreading wisdom that benefits the reader as much on the page as it does when applied in their daily life.
