by Shihan Van Clief

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Deciphering Gibberish is a collection of poetry, prose and stories about the random nature of life as a full time Human/Artist.
Description
With a career spanning more than 18 years, Shihan has gradually cultivated an emotional writing style. Not everyone will know what it is to be Young, Black, Father, Husband, from New York but, everyone knows what it's like to feel love, pain and happiness. We can relate to the emotions of life easier than the adjectives of one's life. Deciphering Gibberish is best described as an intimate collection of his life's emotional observations masquerading as poetry. Emotionally charged, Deciphering Gibberish is an essential tool in the understanding of the human experience. This is Shihan's open letter to the consciousness of our collective experience letting us know we are all closer connected than we are made to believe we are.
