Book Description

"Prevail: Poems on Life, Love, and Politics presents an eye-opening collection of poetry inspired by personal experiences, current events, history, culture, and social issues. This collection provides a glimpse into the mind of BuddahDesmond as he investigates our contemporary world. Written over the course of the last decade, these poems serve as an introduction to BuddahDesmond’s range, voice, and style.

Prevail is divided into three sections—life, love, and politics, each of which provides the author with an opportunity to thoroughly dissect his thoughts and feelings on each topic. “Life” challenges the notion of living happily ever after, considers the struggles of dysfunctional families, and shares the perspective of a laggard in a high-tech world. “Love” discusses the power of real, true love, the up and downs of relationships, and the difficulty finding a mate in the technosexual age. “Politics” explores the power of rhetoric and the underhanded maneuvering of politicians, as well as providing perspectives on many contemporary issues.

In this new collection, BuddahDesmond seeks to offer an underlying message of strength, persistence, and triumph."

Absolutely one of the best reads for 2012! BuddahDesmond's body of work is encouraging, memorable, raw and a welcomed deviation from conventional stances and approaches to poetry. His approach is very intimate to the point where it feels as though he is holding a conversation with you. As you continue reading, you gain a better understanding of his plight and triumph. You will not be disappointed. Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

I'll Never Understand
Desperation
Past, Present and Future
Everyday Drugs
It's Not That Serious
Happily Ever After
