About the book: "OF THE HOPELESS" is the author's second poetry collection for the hopeless ones, the roses who reached the stars and had their tenacity not celebrated, the ones who hope for change in this hopeless world and those whose misery decides their fate, this is for you.
"Indulge in my words, listen to the voice of the wicked, the demons speak through my thoughts. Let my words heal or pain you more for I am not here to inspire - I am just as broken and as hopeless, good luck dear reader"
