From the darkest recesses of desperate loneliness, poetry has always had the ability to lift even the most suffering of hearts. Tempered thoughts, structured with the right words woven together with a caring heart and artistic hand, can give a troubled soul the eyes to see and the desire to appreciate the beauty of life once again. In Poetry for the Lost Soul, author Jeffrey A. Carlton experiences a rebirth into the world through his work. From the brink of death, the author rediscovers life and invites the reader to join him in his journey. Stemming from the loss of his entire family and subsequent questioning of his own self-worth, Mr. Carlton uses poetry to come to terms with himself, with his God, and with the imminence of death. Through these poems he fights to conquer the evils that are trying to envelop him, enabling him to pull himself from death’s doorstep through his writing.
