    Dark Waters - What it's like to be homeless in America

    The book is a book of poems written about the perceptions and struggles of the author when he became homeless in Virginia. The book is very meaningful and leads to an understanding of this type of situation. However, the book has a happy ending. He is allowed to move in with a friend of his and he turns over a new leaf. He is able to get a job and publish this book. Actually, he used to be a published writer he says. From a newspaper advertisement he states that his writings didn't hit the bookstores until he wrote about his struggle with homelessness. I would recommend the book to anyone to obtain a window on this particular kind of struggle. The poetry in this book gives a deeper meaning to the book.

    I give this book a five rating due to its exceptional writing and timely subject matter. The author documents his experience with being homeless, destitute, and living in his vehicle for some two years. Each poem gives a different experience, a different emotion, and lets you the reader climb onboard to live with him through these moments in his life. This is not an easy read, but well worth the time and effort given by the reader. The power of the human spirit is documented and lived out in the pages of this book. In only 86 pages the author captures a brief moment in his history and lays it out in word pictures that prick the heart and illuminate the mind. A must read for poetry lovers and those more leaning toward human interest stories.
