About the Book

Diverse poems examine a young man’s journey through life as he experiences love, loss, hope, fulfillment, and failure while working to accept himself just as he is.

Home, just another thing to turn your back on.
Into the wild, into the unknown,
Into a 1965 Ford filled to the brim, foot upon the gas,
Accelerating into the future, back to the past.
Hands on the wheel, windows down, radio up.
In a rush, in a fog, figuring a way out …

Within his first volume of poems, Eric Wayne Flynn amasses an evocative, thought-provoking collection that challenges belief and morality through the narrative of a young man deeply involved with an ideal while battling through existential dilemmas of the spirit and temptations of the flesh.

Flynn reflects on a variety of topics that include his coming-of-age journey and experiences with love, loss, hope, fulfillment, and failure while lyrically examining the world—both seen and unseen—from creation to the brink of extinction and salvation. As he leads others down a path into his heart and life, Flynn explores what it means to truly live, not just exist, while celebrating the lessons derived from both good and bad experiences.

Ex Nihilo is a volume of contemporary poetry that examines a young man’s journey through life as he works to accept himself just as he is.
