Modern Poems is a book that seeks to elicit emotions that speak of the readers’ senses. It hopes that it is worth the time to read again and again, and that readers will commit some of the poems to memory.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, magic and power in it. Begin it now.” These immortal words by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe are once again epitomized by a man who believes it is never too late to follow your dreams. After successful careers in mechanical engineering, life insurance and network marketing, author-poet Lloyd Constantine finally pursues his passion for writing, awakens his literary genius, and debuts into the publishing world with Modern Poems.

Constantine’s book has been in compilation since the ‘70s when he started to put to paper his thoughts and observations of people, places, and society in general as well as his own experiences. It contains poetry that reflects earlier life and lifestyles, particularly childhood days, and includes life stories of friends and those people around him. Exciting settings include places in Asia, Europe and North America that he has traveled to.

It creatively reflects varied themes and a unique writing style more akin to storytelling. It speaks of climate change, politics, banking, love, war, friendship, geography and social life and psychology. Some of the poems are in the first person but do not necessarily reflect personal experiences, but told from a personal perspective for a provocative flavor. Furthermore, its colorful illustrations offer readers a more intimate reading experience.

About the Author
Lloyd Constantine was born in Bamboo, St. Ann, in the beautiful Caribbean island of Jamaica. After a mechanical engineering and life insurance career, he moved his family away from the political uncertainties of the time, to Canada, where he spent two decades with a transit company. He wanted time and financial freedom and he determined that network marketing, called the “Business of the 21st Century” by Robert Kiyosaki, offered the best scope for these. He had always wanted to publish his writing so that he could share his thoughts with the world. The collection of poems he had been storing over the years was augmented by the prolific writing in 2011 and 2012. Encouraged by friends to publish he finally took the plunge. He has other writing projects on which he is currently working. Another book of poems follows as well as his first full novel.
