i gave up on myself for less sprawls years of life, explores the endless depths of single moments, and ponders eternity.
In this brilliant first collection of poetry, Bryce W. Fox asks questions of himself and of God that few have the courage to ask. Much more than just asking, i gave up on myself for less sits with that seeking and wonders at the process. There is no more human thing than that.
Trapped in a struggle between love and loss, pain and wonder, Fox uses his pen as a shovel to dig deep into himself. Every poem captures a whirlwind of feeling and holds onto it, considers it, cares for it, then releases it. Memory, pain, yearning, and freedom—bound collectively by a single life—resound throughout.
There is a strong, aching beauty within that will reverberate in your body for hours, even days after you've set the book down.
