Even if you don't like poetry, there's a poem for everyone. We took great care in making sure the poems were easy to grasp, quirky, and relatable. For everyone who's been supporting me on this blog since day one, or understands the troubles of self publishing, please show support and purchase our book! I'd love to hear what you think about it.
Soft Eyes and Troubled Minds is a compilation of poetry and literary works by high school students Eboni Symone Porter and Isaiah Cole Louder. It addresses complex emotions and battles an average teenager deals with everyday. It also deals with depression, suicide, love, betrayal, self-image, stress, and finding happiness. This book was not created to make thousands of dollars, win awards, or attract fame. Its purpose is simply to remind the common person that the storm will pass. Do not be afraid.

Those poor, poor single days
Filled with mixed emotions and desperate haze
Delusional desire, obsession and fawning
Causing sleepless nights and morning yawning
She wanted love, kindness, and affection
All he had was marijuana and an erection
Her desperation to love was met with passionless hugs
And piss colored beer stains on her bedroom rug
He wanted a playmate for all day and night
That would keep him satisfied without a fight
Instead he got a creature with emotion and depth
With her own desires that would never be met
Love is not obtainable for it is simply a dream
That causes not swooning, playmate but the need to scream
How you disguise this reality is your blatant confusion
For what you spend your life seeking is just an illusion
