More About This Book

Overview

If ever there were a necessary time for men to reclaim an active and vocal role in the conversation of love, it would be now. Today, masculinity is defined by external posturing and emotional suppression. The fear of being exposed as vulnerable human beings leaves the men in our community mute, or even worse, ignorant, regarding the issues that matter the most.

Revolutionary in its concept, imagery, and presentation, The Last Poem on the Last Day, is a refreshing entry into the indie literary landscape. It brings home the raw, uncut emotion and pain felt by, but rarely attributed to or acknowledged by, men. Poet, Charles L. Peters, lays out his mistakes, convictions, and redemptive lessons learned for all to see. In profoundly simple phrasing and surprisingly honest prose, he encompasses all the difficult colors of love - attained love, lost self, infidelity, divorce, and the weight of self doubt and insecurity.

Take this journey into the soul of one of hip-hop's most promising young talents and revisit the times you were in love, thought you were in love, or had to dig yourself out of love just to stay alive in your own dreams.

"The story of the artist trying to balance art and love, freedom and priority, impulse and responsibility will never get old. In that sense, The Last Poem On The Last Day is timeless, classic, and a must read." - Sunshine Anderson, R&B singer/songwriter

"The Last Poem On The Last Day is the product of the author's enthusiasm for the textures and freedom of live hip-hop and jazz. A grand accomplishment and a win for music and literary fans alike." - Symbolyc One (S1), award-winning music producer (KANYE WEST''s -pOWER)

"Peters' poetry consists of real, bare, and honest confrontation with reality that should be the essence of all poetry." - Dr. Carmen Tafolla, Award Winning poet/author
