Overview

No Rose of Thorns is a coming-of-age collection, written in small Kansas towns from 1998-2007. It exposes the life of a teenager suffering from a head injury as he grows into adulthood. The author reveals his world through rhythm and word. Using self-analysis and exposure of inner weaknesses, he dives frequently into the depths of depression. Alan is consumed with love and loss, trying to accept life with its limiting qualities. Through deep symbolism and emotional words, he dissects relationships, self-hatred, and self-knowledge. His heart lives within the words he writes, only to be reborn again and again through battles of ego and ultimate evolution of the self. No Rose of Thorns has been described by readers as holding a new language all its own, only to be revealed through accepting the melodic rhythm of this poet.
