by Todd D. Stokes
This poignant collection of inspirational poetry is coupled with the author Todd Stokesís touchingly funny childhood memories to create an eclectic vignette of faith, humor, and solace.
Stokesís eloquent poems express his complete and subliminal connection to Christianity. The subtle craft of his wording complements the ease with which he elaborates on death, the afterlife, and surrendering control to God. These poems are juxtaposed by his collection of personal anecdotes, in which he recounts his mischievous exploits as a child. His stories, which range from nighttime walks in the cemetery to an intriguing carnival sideshow gone horribly awry, will have you engrossed with his tales up until their hilarious and shocking conclusions.
This book offers a complex and enlightening look at the experiences, passions, and beliefs that are the driving force in one manís life and offer comfort and inspiration to the lives of others.
