You lose your independence and freedom of choice. So I dug deep, found the inspiration I needed, and wrote these poems from the heart of the prisoner.
Madras, OR (Vocus) March 20, 2010
Readers will be struck by the illuminative work of a mature poet as author Brad Moschetti presents his newly published poetry book through Xlibris, Heart of the Prisoner. True to its name, this reflective anthology reveals the profound emotions and sentiments of a man who, despite behind bars, bares his soul for the world to see.
“Prison changes a man—your heart hardens, your spirit crushed,” says Moschetti. “You lose your independence and freedom of choice. So I dug deep, found the inspiration I needed, and wrote these poems from the heart of the prisoner.”
Incarcerated for over seven years out of his twelve year sentence in federal prison, Moschetti displays the inner workings of his heart, mind, and soul in this poetry collection. His poems are both reflective and thoughtful, in that he can look out at the world around him, and bring it inside, where he twists it around within the realm of the personal and the emotional. Containing passionate writing about diverse subjects and themes, this collection offers insight into the devastating life of the prisoner, the author’s love for his family, as well as his love for a woman, through various moods and styles.
With over one hundred pages of deeply felt poetry, Heart of the Prisoner reminds readers to be serious with one’s actions and to appreciate the blessings received in life before it is taken away. Furthermore, Moschetti hopes that between the pages of his stirring composition, readers may find inspiration and joy.
