    by Khaleel The Writer
    G.M.S.T. speaks verses about life, love, family, spirituality, and pop culture to showcase that all of these and other things help us grow into something beautiful, like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, or seeds converting into a bouquet of roses when we work hard and get ourselves together (hence the cover).

  • The Old West & Times Gone By

  • Ethereal: Dreamlands and Heavens

    by Bryce Couture
    Ethereal is a personal escape and my idea of the perfect place, a garden of life and essence of freedom. My heaven is a mix of bad and good with heavy emotion and confusion. Because you must kiss the devil to gain immortality and seduce him to gain the peace and contentment that you wish to own. My dreamland has luscious flowers and beautiful rhymes, but also has some of the darkest corners in the celestial. The inside of one's mind is the most wretched and warming place you could visit, but it ... more
  • Atheists and Empty Spaces

    by Michael Thomas
    The poems discuss the disconnection with nature, the supernatural, art, and religion that has occurred in the recent past. They suggest that, to some degree, most people are atheists because they do not know what to believe and they fill the empty spaces in their minds and souls with ideas that may do more harm than good. The poems are mostly in traditional verse and mostly tell or retell stories from Biblical, Ancient Greek and Roman, and Western literature sources.
  • Atheists and Empty Spaces

    by Michael Thomas
    The poems in Atheists and Empty Spaces explore the quintessential aspect of humanity – the need of having something in which to believe. Modern humanity attempts to fill the empty spaces in the psyche with emotional and psychological sustenance that was once provided by communal connections, religion, and the worship of deities or even nature. These poems explore how, in many ways, people have all become atheists because they no longer know how to connect to natural and supernatural forces, and... more
  • A Path Without Stones

    by Vaughan Douglas Reid
    A Path Without Stones explores human emotion through the changing seasons of a forest. From the frost of winter to the waking spring. From the warmth of summer to the sleep of fall. Life is the wonder of life. The discovery of things outside of ourselves. Where rivers flow, lakes lay deep, and trees stand as sentinels. This is a place of comfort for all who seek shelter.
