It is said that poetry is the literature of expression; that it offers both readers and writers an emotional outlet from the turmoil of everyday life, both mundane and magnificent. Poet Will ’is Stevens, in For Those Who Seek to Know: The Poetry of Soup, Book I (published by Trafford Publishing), offers about a poetic expression of modern life in America.

A crushing defeat to humanity
A hidden victory to insanity

Where patriots are sure to die
Where tyrants believe they can fly

The full truth remains unseen
By those whose thoughts are unclean

The lead us as lambs to the slaughter
Having forgot the word of our father
All life they willingly barter
They maul falling dollar

Deceive yourself no more with their lies
For we all must stand now with one cry
Or our land will surely die

Many of the poems in For Those Who Seek to Know take on themes, experiences and emotions common to everyday Americans; poems of fear and uncertainty tempered with acceptance, such as “Why Wait,” or poems of discovery such as “Requires Sighting.” Any of these poems will strike chords with readers, and offer them the chance to pause and reflect on the issues of their day.
