Poet and songwriter Troy Sydney Maxwell Pearson believes that love and pain exist on the same spectrum, but one must find the balance in between. Drawing inspiration from his own triumphs and defeats in finding that equilibrium in life, he reveals to readers some of life’s glories and tragedies told in verses and rhymes.

In his poetic anthology, “The Balance of Love and Pain” (published by Balboa Press AU), Pearson paints life in varied colors — dark, light and somewhere in between. The book springs from life and its magic, portraying the troubles of the world but also its beauty. Each poem, although sometimes sad, is also one of hope which can be found through the love of others and love of self.

The book encapsulates simple words with as much power as possible, telling experiences lived in a cosmic scale. It is a book about finding happiness after living through hell, of suffering the pain of loss and healing through power of love.

“This book will take you to many, many places... from the dawn of time to the stars of the night sky, then deep inside where a child cries... love and the strength it is, and the pain of depression,” Pearson shares. “My hope is that people draw warmth and energy from my poetry and the resolution of if your half way through hell you have got to keep going cause heaven is on the other side.”
