Ken, over the last eight years while struggling with his schizophrenia, was Spiritually inspired in the ability to compose all the poetry within this book.


The book itself is quite unique in the way it tells of Ken’s journey, with the narrative portions opening up the fullness of the realism that is captured so vividly in the format of poetry.


This creative style not only allows the reader to actually insert themselves into the life experiences of Ken's journey from a life lived in a state of total devastation, through to a life now lived in the strength of freedom and abundance given to him.


Ken accepted Jesus as his Savior in April of 2003 and was Baptized. It has been over the past five years that he has grown into a person great Faith, knowing and fully believing in the Power and Strength of the Holy Spirit.
