About the Book

Author Kenneth R. Taylor Sr. has faced many struggles, both in his current life and in his previous existence lived on a faraway planet. Now he shares reflections upon these battles in the form of poetry and short stories.

In his earthly life, at the age of six, he witnessed the horrific death of his father in a motorcycle accident. He then contracted pharynx polio, which left him unable to speak correctly. Prior to coming to earth, Taylor lived in the system of the star Kolob, past the Andromeda Galaxy. There he was a one-star general in the midst of a civil war. His loyalties were torn, and his hesitation in choosing sides led to his banishment to Earth, where only through dreams and visions is he able to understand his purpose. What’s more, while living an earthly life, he has been burdened with visions of female demons who tortured him and dragged him to the dungeons of hell—introducing him to the unseen world of spiritual warfare. He has turned to God for help, struggling to do right and to find love and affection along the way.

In this collection of prose and verse, one man reflects on his journey through life not just on this planet but also in a distant galaxy and in the realm of the spirit.
