The Suffering Man (A Book of Poetry)
by Hopeton Gray
This book of poetry is about life and our emotional struggles. Like the Ten Commandments, love is the focal point of this book. We are lifes prisoners and individually we are always struggling to be free within our confines.
The poems express pain, love, hope, and sometimes our dreams. The lyrics crave for a better tomorrow, where the Garden of Eden might become our reality.
This book of poetry is another representation of this poets literary creativity.About the Author

He become a grade A student while at school in South London. It soon became evident that the academic path was just what the higher powers ordained. His upward spiral was a destiny propelled by Grace; indeed, it was atonement for a turbulent childhood existence.
