by Esraa YousryWe are the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through life. Day-to-day struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world's creatures. As human beings, when we encounter a challenge, we have the freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down a different road.

by Paula R. HiltonAt Any Given Second contains 47 poems written between 1990 and 2020. Paula R. Hilton's work explores the immediacy of memory and how our most important relationships define us.

He told her "poetry is about survival" which made her understand its permanence and importance and gave her the will to write, and thrive, each day.
by Peter F. CrowleyA running theme throughout the poems is the marginalized, the forgotten throughout the world and in the US who are walked over and treated as less than human. This extends from the poor, the Bangladeshi rickshaw driver, to immigrants who ‘White Terrorist[s]’ (a piece within the book) often target.

Too many times in today's society we base things off of social stigmas, race, ethnicity, social class when we are all human beings... more
by Arthur Lee ConwayA poetic journey of verses, thoughts, and parables about mankind schisms. Cyclonic interactions and divisions that causes movement, and sometimes turbulent development in the cocoon of Gaia. Resulting in birth, after numerous encounters with Earths worldly frequencies, culminating in the coming of the Monarch. That majestic entity that elects to take flight towards the Light of Eternal understanding. Mind you, this is a spiritual awakening through the spoken word.
