BrettJohnson/Bonafide, author of Beautiful Poetry for a Special Person, returns to the world of literature with a collection of poems that captures the diversity of human experience and the power of human emotion. Heartfelt Poems Volume 1 is an honest portrait of life, in all its joys and sorrows, and a triumphant testament of the human spirit.

This collection of eclectic poems offers a detailed account of the author’s journey as a human being, an imperfect man, a young adult struggling to find his way in the world and it also gives a testimony of how he eventually found hope and inner peace through writing poetry. This form of creative expression became his venue to express both his joys and his sorrows. He hopes that his book will encourage others to move forward despite the odds that lay in their paths. He says:

“I want every reader, including myself, to not throw in the towel… We can still stand tall and fight against the daily adversarial forces…. Show your emotion, shed some tears, go face to face with any of your grand fears, setbacks, mistakes and all. You’ll make it.”

Heartfelt Poems Volume 1 features poems that talk about love, hate, pain and the different things that give life its color. The subjects may be breathtaking their range but with his unique poetic voice, BrettJohnson/Bonafide makes each of his writings relevant, immediate and emotionally accessible.
