This early material consists of poems which have a certain amount of adolescent angst and concerns for the future, together with social observations which are still relevant today. Although some may be rather dark, they reflect the frame of mind of someone in their early twenties trying to find their way in life with all its harsh realities. There are still, however, moments to appreciate the nicer things in life, and hopefully other poems in the volume will raise the spirit and be of more cheer. Inspiration for the collection came from such avenues as being unemployed in a recession, unrequited love, war, friendship and social interaction.
