Me, My World & I
You have no idea what it’s like sitting on a shelf in the poetry section of a bookshop. Have you ever noticed how literature designated as intellectual is always hidden like some top-shelf publication in a sweet shop? I get so lonely down there in all that prehistoric dust. Truth be told, I get picked up less than Betty Jones at number forty-seven – and she’s ninety-two!
As you might have gathered, I’m a little different – some might even say special! I’m not so much a poetry book, more a biography of everyday living. Within my pages, you will find the musings and poetry of an ordinary bloke from down your street. This is the life and times of Joe Average, a testament to life as you know it – and a vote for the real world.
You could say I’m a snapshot of real life written by a real person. If you buy me, I promise to sit on your coffee table and pretend to be intellectual … just think how much more sophisticated you will look!
This is a book about life – not through the eyes of a superstar or viewed from some mansion in Beverly Hills, but as lived by an average guy from down your street.
This is not some handpicked account of conveniently manufactured experiences, created specifically to titillate the reader. Rather, it’s an honest account of the ups and downs experienced in an average year of most people’s lives.
I invite you to follow me on a journey of discovery in which the characters are real people, and their experiences are not some subplot from a badly written script. Here you will find an inquisitive mind, genuine emotion, and an awakening to the fact that we can be something more.
As a collection of poetry, this is a work of self-expression (not an attempt to join the dusty ranks of academia). But then, this is so much more than a poetry book. Here, with soul bared, you will find a personal diary, a scrapbook of memories, and a soapbox for debate. This is a biography on life in which the featured verse is an important part of the journey, but not the complete story.
Some might say that this is a depiction of life through rose-tinted glasses, topped off with a heady dose of nostalgia. Others might say it’s an overly critical and pessimistic view of where we are heading. What do you say?
