David P Forestabout this book: The poems and songs in this short book are a selection from throughout the author's life.
The author of this short collection has been writing poetry since an early age. Writing songs began a little later when he was the lead singer in a soft-rock band - but alas dreams of stardom did not happen.
Of the lyrics that are included in this little booklet some were written first and the melody followed and with others the melody led the way to the words. The band seemed to fade out of existence when the author was to continue his undergraduate law and language studies in Spain.
The author has travelled and lived in other places throughout his life and gained some knowledge of other cultures and although he has a wealth of ideas and potential for publishing it was only recently that he decided to with his first book Psychotic Memoirs. (Coming out the journey within) parts of which are very poetic.
The author’s writings serve to release and interpret events in life and due to an honest approach to writing he does not seek to promote himself but only his works.
The title of this selection is not a tautology - it is a short taster of the various styles and themes of the author’s songs and poetry. In saying this, the author has tried to promote a whimsical mix of variety rather than adhere to a progression of theme or style even within this little booklet.
As such each work can be enjoyed as an individual piece. All of the songs and poems have their own distinctive feel - from short pithy works and rhyme to free verse; from soft rock lyrics to dystopian bleakness.
A varied selection from the songs and poetry of the author of Psychotic Memoirs: (Coming out the journey within).
