The thought-provoking collection of poetry “Exposed: A Collection of Poems” (published by iUniverse) by John McCarthy offers an honest reflection of life’s experiences and a search for a higher calling.

Like many poetry collections, McCarthy has assembled “Exposed” to present a message: A man’s journey from a dark, bleak place, riddled with despair, finding his way to redemption through hope and acknowledgment.

An excerpt from “Exposed,” from the poem “In an Old Gray Town”:

“This nameless old town, whose
Outlook is bleak
Has nameless old people, whose
Names we don’t speak
And shutters and gates that
Rattle and creak.
An old town with old people, who
Rattle and creak.”

Readers will discover in McCarthy’s verse real, honest emotions exposed for anyone to see. His poems are honest, empathic and compelling, each of them demonstrating the pain and healing of a man’s soul.
