Free eBook Fridays: June

This month for our Free eBook Fridays, we feature Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry. This is a compilation of all the poetry I wrote from 2002 to 2016. There are over 250 poems in this collection. That’s a lot! Most poetry collections only feature about 50 or 60 poems. Why is this one so large? This was everything I wrote when I first began my writing journey. Most of this poetry is nothing like the poetry I write today. However, I am still fond of many of the poems in this collection and I want to share it with you. 

Think of this more like a coffee table book. Read a poem or two then put it down until another time. It could be something for guests to read or to keep in an office waiting room. This free download is intended to build awareness about my work and encourage people unfamiliar with my work to give it a try. I ask for nothing more than a brief review. This could be as simple as “I liked this book” or even “I did not enjoy this book.” The more reviews the book gets, the more people see it in searches. Sadly, that’s how the world works. I hope you enjoy it.

The complete collection of poetry by James Pack. The poetry in this collection was written between 2002-2016. Gripping poems of a struggling youth and fantastical fictional narrative poetry for all ages. Pariah Bound comprises all the emotions and dreams of a young man still discovering his place in this world. With over 250 poems, there is something for everyone in this complete collection. 

I had intended not to write poetry after this work. That is why my poetry now is different and I think I’ve finally found my voice.

Throwback Thursday Poetry: The Lonely Road

many of you know
of the lonely road
this is the road i walk
for all eternity
this road, i have found,
is always heading down
with a bump and curve
not often, but occasionally

there is a fork ahead
with much time i will spend
on which way to go
and which to avoid
i choose the left
for it looks the best
but sometimes i question
the things i decide

the road now ends
and i must descend
into this vast and large
body of water
my face is cold
i have grown old
all the pressure
has grown larger

there is a way
that i might escape
but i choose
to keep walking
i’m at the end
of all that has been
and i am
no longer breathing

Early poetry by James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Steps to Insanity

the time has come to say goodbye
i am no longer able to cry
this life has been a wild ride
somehow i have lost my pride

it will be rough as i glide
to the underworld after i die
Satan will laugh as i try
to escape from the Hives

do not ask how or why
it has gone before my eyes
i must now try to decide
to make it right or lose my mind

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
