Walking Under Cement Skies

(the scribbling and scrawling of an unread poet)

by Brad Sweitzer

A collection of free verse poetry that I hope will provoke thoughts in the reader and into deeper self examination of their lives and the world around us.
This book is a collection of free verse poetry that I have been working on since around 1979 until present day. Many of the poems are about family and friends, my thoughts on my place in the universe and how I see and understand this world we live in. A questioning of myself and God, religion and death. Some of these poems speak to the loss of family and friends which we all can relate to or that we all will be able to relate to in time. Also I have included a section paying homage to Pennsylvania my beloved home state. I hope my words will provoke the reader to a deeper introspection of the world and their own lives and the way they relate to the ever-changing world we live in.
