WHY DO I DO THIS?
If I can save
A single human life
In my own life,
There's a chance
I will have helped
I should have thought of this
Before I wrote a book
In hopes that people would be happy
When they bought and read a copy. Sorry, species.
If I can help
A lot of humans catch their breath,
We might stop tearing up the Earth
To find a cure for life and death.
There is no cure for life and death.
There is no one without the both.
There is no hope
I'll write a better book description
Than its title is.
I might as well just drop this
and move on to the synopsis.
Life's a you-know-what.
People fall in ruts.
We think our lives are over while we live them.
Our universal game
is to hunt for who's to blame
until the universe itself is unforgiven.
Now and then a human
who spies a space to bloom in
is gifted with uplifted points of view
that help us see beyond the skies
and the fear behind our eyes.
In this book, I share my blooming space with you.
"…overflows with a novel kind of witticism and drunkenness that lovers of poetry, as well as those looking for words that inspire, will find interesting. [James] writes about common realities in a style that sings to the soul, and that will, most definitely, help readers find meaning and alter the way they look at life. It is riveting, enlightening, and, above all, highly entertaining."
