"Before Darkness Falls" by, J. Allen Wilson,
This review is from: Before Darkness Falls (Paperback)
"Before Darkness Falls," opens the closed hearts, souls and minds,
bringing an enlightening awareness to the beauty of precious life, filling all
with a desire to reach out to all to respect, help and admire.
Allen places himself in all realms of emotions of life, passionately
conveying them so tenderly.
His pen presses against the paper differently in each poem, yet maintains an ever touching, graceful continuity.
His words bring to the surface all the emotions anyone may feel at some
point in their life. Eliminating the segregation of society with the appreciation for all life, as was equally given. "Before Darkness Falls" touches on
controversial issues, bearing both sides with a hope to lessen the
selfish actions of haste. Completing with poems that frolic with the gaiety of refreshing love.
He brings forth the joy of love, hope, light and comfort that longs to
dance and blossom in everyone, to fill the emptiness of times in life that is
all too easily filled with darkness.
Allen's sensitivity seen with the eyes of his heart, flows directly to
the reader's, as if the same blood flows in the two.
"Before Darkness Falls," leaves the want of more, never to stop reading. If
this exquisite collection of poetic artistry, with the special personal
introduction to each poem, was read by all, the darkness falling now
upon us, the bloodshed, prejudices, selfishness and negativity would extinguish itself, uniting the world, with peace, happiness and the springtime of love, to fill and consume each heart, soul and mind.
