For a long time, he was a broken and torn man. But out of his brokenness, came a journey of transformation, a trove of learning, enlightenment, insights, and inspiration. And in his poignantly stirring poetry book, From Hell To Paradise – A Journey In Verse, poet-author Martin Brits shares his thoughts, sentiments, and story.
In this anthology of poetry, the author calls to mind the deep-seated memories, buried emotions, and repressed feelings of his past—and puts them on paper. Weaving together an emotive tapestry of verses, he brings forth threads of his life, especially the man that he was and the man he has evolved into, to give readers a glimpse of his journey From Hell to Paradise. He writes how life had been for him, in a language soaked with fear, to express the little voice inside of him that once wanted to come out and be free.
Through this poem collection, he remembers his childhood of being beaten by his drunken father; he recalls how he became like his alcoholic father to his wife and children; he reflects on how tormented he was because of what he did; and he shares how he finally found his way home and started walking towards peace. His verses are so raw, candid, and real that readers will find themselves feeling his pain, longing, and change. In a poem or two, they will realize how they can very much relate to what the author experienced and expressed.
From Hell to Paradise – A Journey in Verse is poetry that comes from the mind, heart, and soul of a man who has been through hell and who finally found the path to reconciliation and paradise.
