A Lost Soul: A Collection of Poems and Motivational Articles is an collection of rhyming verse poetry and inspirational brief essays such as "You Can Change the World" and "Repetition is Your Karmic Lesson". Award-winning poet Anthony K. Alfred, who first began to write as a form of therapy after surviving abuse at a young age, focuses on calling out to souls that are lost amid misery, fear, and despair. A Lost Soul mourns losses in some poems, grimly speaks of literal and metaphorical death in others, while reaching out to spiritual strength and resilience within in still others. Highly recommended, moving, and emotionally powerful. "When Sadness Comes Pouring Down": How sadness comes down / like a gray cloud out of the clear sky / Oh what a startling surprise / when the rain begins to pour down / with that drenching sound /What was once a bright day / drifts slowly away / on a sail into the bay.
