Share Article

New book features a heartfelt collection of poems that anyone can relate to.

Author and poet Joshua Chilson calls on readers to feel, imagine, and contemplate a life that isn't their own. He invites them to take a walk in his shoes as he shares an emotionally-laden anthology in My Voice.

Poetry in its greatest form is brought out from secrets held close, moments one only wishes to forget, those times he or she sits thinking "I only feel this." My Voice is a collection of poems for everyone and anyone can relate to—be it about mistakes in life or a loved one who is no longer there. The words bound through these pages are filled with emotion and depth and have only been seen by the author’s eyes and a few fellow poets. But now he opens the doors to an unspoken voice, each scream that resides deep in this soul welcomes everyone. As readers listen to My Voice, they will see the sadness, joy, love, and find hope in dark times.

About the Author
Joshua Chilson is a man of twenty five years with a lot to learn from the world. Throughout these years, he says he cannot boast as he has not much to show for achievements. Currently Bowling Green Missouri is where he resides, though having moved time and time again 'Home' hasn't been found yet for our author. Something he enjoys are early morning coffee with a cigarette in the presence of good company, although most of the time it's spent alone writing. At age twelve is when writing became necessary for him, poetic release had came with talking less, and slowly his social skills dissolved. Presently while trying to find his voice, the decision to journey out with the last of his arts came into play. He is the type of person one comes to understand not through spoken words, but in silence and gesture. With each turn of the corner, his aspirations have changed; poetry has and always will be a part of his life, but what he wants most is to be a father like his own old man.
