The Famine of the Human Dream

by Benjamin Mester

What is wisdom? If wisdom is one thing, it is the ability to perceive what in life is worth doing, and what is not. But as Solomon noted: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” So often, we seek that which never satisfies. We work, we save, we store, and spend. These are the things people do with their time, not the things that make life worth living. What then does make life worth living? Attaining happiness? No. Becoming strong — a person who knows the good and fights for it. That is true wisdom. Contained within these essays and poems is an in depth look at those ancient questions of life that all have felt in rare moments, with excerpts of poetry and philosophy from all the inspired thinkers throughout time, all through the lens of the Bible. This author believes the Bible to be the inspired word of God, and treats it as the basis for truth.

Beyond Words: A Collection of Poems

by Mayank Mishra

Poetry, like all the beautiful things of life cannot be defined in a few words. It takes a lifetime and even more sometimes. Through my poems I have tried to understand different concepts and attempted to define them. Words become immortalized when wrought in poetry. Nature lives in a poetic mood all the time, I realized this when I was 18 years old. Let my words speak !
