Be the Light
About the Book
I gaze patiently from afar
Through the guarded trees,
The vastness of light diminished
But only from my worn seat.
The sun knows not my view,
And earth chooses its vantage.
When my day has ended,
The sun’s day goes on.
Adam A. Bloom believes in keeping hope alive, despite the adversities we all must eventually face in life. Inspired by the fear that pain is currently overpowering love, Bloom shares an anthology of poems that explores a variety of themes while expressing hope for a better world.
In a collection divided into two sections, Bloom begins by chasing the truth regarding the fundamental issues with our civilization with the potential to stifle progress or end us altogether. Peppered with raw emotions and complex thoughts, his poems examine man’s impact on the climate, why children are treated like animals, and why greed is so prevalent. Within the second section, Bloom’s poems reflect on love and pain, hopes and fears, and inspiration and beauty as he contemplates on all the wonders of life.
Be the Light shares a compilation of unique lyrical reflections from a fresh voice in poetry that chase truths and the true meaning of life.
