Chronicling An Orphan's Life
New book Teels the story of an orphan quest to belong through Poetry.
By: Ben E. Alexander
In the human experience the quest for acceptance and true love can be dramatic, whimsical, and even tragic. Here is presented one mans search for and ultimate discovery of such a love related through the unique perspective of poetry.
Alexander, a 53-year-old stay-at-home dad, wrote a collection of 63 poems. This book is called: “The Snoozle and Other Thoughts: One Man’s Quest for True Love,” and is available through PublishAmerica and other bookstores worldwide. It retails for $24.95 and is also available on Alexander’s personal website at www.bealexander.co.cc.
Alexander says “My 12-year-old son inspired the title poem. One day he asked me for help coming up with a creative writing topic. I told him anything, even an imaginary creature called a Snoozle, could serve as a prompt.”
Each poem in Alexander’s book is accompanied by a thought or reflection, many of which deal with the universal need to belong. And central to the book are Alexander’s wife and three children. “It’s all about finding true love and raising a family,” he said.
