This debut collection of poems finds Wayne Martyn fully exposed, candidly sharing life experiences and divulging his innermost thoughts. The spoken word artist ponders on adolescence, being bipolar in a world that encourages polarisation, popular culture, the vortex of social media, staring down the Grim Reaper, substance abuse, self-harm, counter intuitive work environments, governmental and societal division, spiritual awakenings, the potential for apocalypse and the trappings of looking for belonging in an often scary and dark modern world.
