Description

The poems represented between these pages in this powerful book are Urban shocking vignettes of street homelessness lived and experienced by a man rightly titled The Homeless Poet.
The pieces reflect the serious danger of physical violence, destitution and charity incorporated in the realm of homeless individuals surviving the undiminishing scourge of homelessness prevalent in modern day Britain. The poet relays in brutal honesty contemporary themes of social injustice and family-related issues from the harsh perspective of the street too, but cloaked in the beauty of compassion and love.
This is a must-read poetry book displaying acute insight into the subject of living rough, and witnessing how life impacts the humanity of men and women in the stranglehold of urban street homelessness while endeavouring to retain their dignity and respect. The unpredictable vagaries of street life shaping the short and concise poetical writing here will ignite anger and disbelief in equal measure.
These worded paintings were conceived in a world unfamiliar to the majority of ordinary people; a domain sometimes devoid of safety and security.
This book shines bright in testimony that hope and purpose can be maintained on the streets through strength of mind, unwavering resilience and tenuous family connections. Read the contents of this hard-fought creation, and see the tough reality our society pretends does not exist for men and women deprived of a home.
