Galloway does not shy away from acknowledging his failings as a young man in this first volume of poetry. The troubled soul of the poet writes early in this collection, “Sorrows and sins complete your deedless days.” However, Galloway gains wisdom and comes to understand “how the mind gardens itself upon us.” The poet’s path to enlightenment embodies both free verse and rhyme, delving into raw emotions and, in turn, making life’s journey worth traveling.
Galloway guides you along the road through valleys and mountains, but eventually arrives at a comfortable place where he writes, “rest newcomers, the old has failed.” Throughout Mindgarden Volume I, the poet holds a mirror to himself while quietly, albeit lyrically, ushering you with each turning page to forgiveness and love.

Mindgarden vol. 1 is a very good book. It tells of a very talented young mans life ,through the times when he was at his weakness, his struggles, his strength, our lord and saviour jesus christ.Was this review helpful?
