This is the first standalone book I’ve published. It was a long journey to get here, with all the rest of my busy life often taking priority over my writing.
Poetry of the Human Condition takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride which stops frequently at the high and low points throughout that great journey we call life. This collection is arranged in no particular order; similar to how life happens. Each poem is a peek into an event, or series of events, which most of us have faced at one time of another. We taste the sweetness of victory, the dark cloud of a passing loved one, the impact of technology, the past, and everything in between. Sometimes we experience many of these feelings in the same week or even the same day. There are no defined chapters in life, hence no chapters in this book; it flows up and it flows down. It’s a unique journey that everyone will be able to relate to; The ups and downs of modern living.
R.J. Schwartz (Ralph) is an American poet, writer, website owner, and historian living in Idaho Falls, Idaho. This work is his first standalone project; being previously published as a contributing author in The Creative Exiles, an anthology of poems. Ralph owns and manages two websites, www.thegypsythread.org where he explores things “off the beaten path,” pagan history, and poetry, and www.creativeexiles.com which is a gathering place for a group of international creative writers and poets to share their work, free from constraint. Ralph loves all things related to history and is determined in his own small way to ensure that the past is never forgotten.
