I Am the Unknown is a showcasing of the interconnectedness of the self, the soul, nature, society, universal symbolism, and the vast expanses of space and time. It's a cohesive synthesis of contemporary poetry, mystical lyricism, first-person narrative, and traditional poetry. These poems reveal a distinct perspective on what it means to break, heal, and evolve in a way that reveals who you are destined to be, even when you feel perpetually lost in the unknown.

This is a must-have for fans of spiritual symbolism, streams-of-consciousness, candid midnight thoughts, unconventional self-help, expressions that evoke still-life portraits, and allusions to timeless music.
