My World, My Words: Confessions of a Cluttered Mind
My World, My Words: Confessions of a Cluttered Mind is the first collection of poetry released by Jacob Grovey in 2009. Heartache, lack of faith, anger, sadness, fear, self-esteem issues, and suicidal thoughts are all dealt with as Jacob faces them head-on to show that none of us are alone in our feelings.
What is life? What is love? What is death? These questions, among others, have been able to stump the minds of the world's scholars since the beginning of time. Each word brings up different emotions and forces every person to recall moments in their lives that can easily go from one extreme to the other. The journey individuals take to find their own answers to these questions vary just as much as the people themselves. This book just happens to be a small poetic sample of my journey thus far. Like everyone else, I have been in love, but I have also had my heart broken. There have been times when I have enjoyed life, but I have also had to deal with the pain of death. For some, verbally speaking about their experience helps them deal with their pain. Others, such as myself, have a difficult time speaking about the past. So, we choose to write about it.
With my writing, I have been able to recall and deal with the emotions of my past. Although I have dealt with negativity, seeing a written record of days gone by allows my outlook on life to remain positive. We all have individual views and descriptions on the world; this is just My World, My Words. - Author Jacob Grovey
