Description
What keeps us awake at night? It's almost never the comfort and delight of our successes. It's almost never our inner-peace or self-validation, cradling us to sleep, bathing us in reassurance. No. What keeps us up at night is the chaos that harbors in our heads, about which no one else knows. It's the voices of doubt and condemnation. The whispers of denial, rejection and screams of disappointment'at 3 a.m. Or perhaps it's anxiety's laughter, ridiculing us through a small-cracked closet door. The shadows of our sins, haunting us and stalking us from just outside our windows. But through all the chaos, manifesting and uploading into our personal clouds, keeping us awake, there is still the voice of hope. It is a voice that is desperate, demanding, even, to be heard. And that voice is the only thing that keeps us from going completely mad. Poet and writer, Brian Monge, has grown to the familiarity of lying awake in his bed, late into the night as heavy, reflective thoughts roam through his head. From the struggles of his alcoholism, leading him into the beds of jail cells and rehab centers; to his trials and determination to restore family relationships, and cultivate love; to the conflicts of running a small business, he grew compelled to convert his emotions and experiences into his poetry. It was a game-changer. Monge?s poetry and prose are personal, revealing and relatable. Embark on his journey of alcohol, jail, love and recovery. Enjoy its edgy truth and revelation. Be encouraged, empowered, and transported to your earned restful nights by his rhythmic stories and poetry.
