Portrait of a Poet
By: Gordon D. Franklin II
About the Book
Portrait of a Poet contains different snapshots of people’s lives—soldiers risking their lives for freedom, mothers who love their children more than anything, and family betrayal. The poems within this collection capture life’s moments of joy and pain. Poet Gordon D. Franklin II teaches us how to understand love and loss, and how to handle the uncertainty of life. He has seen life’s struggles, from family members in hospital beds to losing a family member to alcohol addiction. The poems illustrate a number of experiences that most anyone can relate to, and Franklin hopes his poetry can speak to you as well.
