Description
‘Escape from Samsara’ is a spiritual journey , where our speaker is seeking transcendence in a world dominated by materialism, fads, internet phenomena, flaky lovers and plenty other bad stuff. The collection asks “How does one rise above all this and escape? How can I become whole in a world dead-set on fragmenting and fracturing apart?” In a series of poems aimed at exploring spirituality in the modern world, we are taken on a trip through all the road blocks that exists between here and enlightenment. Whether it be in romantic relationships, finding purpose in work, or the absurd moments where you find yourself questioning your life. If you're a seeker you'll find your journey on the path inspired by the poems in this book.
