Aprašymas205 Thoughts from the Heart of a Man, is a collection of poetry for encouragement and guidance from a Mans prospective. The content of this book is from the brokenness of a man who has accepted his mistakes and successes. In our quest for peace, a person wants to be sure that there is hope. Suffering will come to us all but we must endure till the end. Since I'm open about loving me for who I am and not for what I'm worth then I have succeeded in expressing the feelings of most of my audience. Therefore expressing my thoughts openly to my audience I gain joy in knowing that others actually feel the way that I do about life. Some may be afraid that others might judge them for saying what's on their heart. When you read my poetry keep in mind I have opened my heart up to you the reader. Make no mistake of my motive. My sole purpose is to be transparent so that others can see they're not alone. Remember, I have fallen several times as we all do- but I will get back up so others may learn from my love to preserve. Love is the core of the book, that's why I exist. Enjoy with hope and thanksgiving. Love and blessings to you Sincerely. Alan Alston Sr.
