By observing others, I try to discern the reasons why people act the way they do, to understand the human condition. Of all beings in the universe, the ones we understand the least are ourselves.
BELLINGHAM, Wash. (PRWEB) June 06, 2017
Growing up, Daniel R.T.N. Kilby spent a lot of time acting the role of the parent. As the eldest of four, with two parents struggling through various addictions, a large portion of his emotional, physical and spiritual childhood was lost. As he transitioned through high school with his siblings, it became increasingly more apparent how he became out of touch with who he was. Poetry was one of many things he turned to as an outlet for discovering himself.
“Think. Process. Emotion.: A Collection of Poetry” (published by Xlibris in April of 2011) shares a compilation of Kilby’s poems with the intent that everyone might feel comfortable reaching inside themselves however they may do so, to discover who they are.
“I began writing poetry in high school as a means of expressing and releasing emotions that accompanied the stresses and struggles of life,” Kilby says. “By observing others, I try to discern the reasons why people act the way they do, to understand the human condition. Of all beings in the universe, the ones we understand the least are ourselves. Through my writing, I communicate the fundamental tenants of human life: the struggles, the emotions, the constant striving for something greater.”
By sharing his poetic work in “Think. Process. Emotion.,” Kilby would like to remind readers that “we are capable of more than we realize, and it is this daily upward battle that makes us what we are.”
