Key Themes: poetry, schizophrenia, emotion, philosophy
This is a collection of poems written in 80s and 90s, to use words to get feelings out in a sort of poetic way. Many of the issues that bothered me then have become big topics, such as ecology, the questioning of capitalist and gun wielding philosophies.
Hopefully reading these poems will make people think about what their own values are, how they perceive life at the moment.
