The Beginning of Me

By Eric Christopher Jackson

Poetry | Paperback


Without the ability to write, my life would become too silent. Without an avenue to express my emotions, my questions, each day would become void. Without an audience to hear me, my words would become prisoners inside of me. This is my poetry. "The Beginning of Me" is a compilation of all the poems I'd written since New Year's 2001 until mid-July 2009. At first, my poetry was simply a means to talk about the subjects I avoided including fear, lack of self-esteem, and questions about my faith in God. This eventually led to the subject of loneliness and a sense of depression that can come from that. The most telling poems are entitled, "Cut" and "Finished." The first dives into a fictional story that described my personal struggle. The second poem is one of the few that speak to the reader from Jesus' perspective. Both are meant to share the Gospel in a unique way. The book is entitled "The Beginning of Me" because I had stopped writing for years and lost all of my previous works. This book is a rebirth of a gift I could have continued to waste.
