Rose City Redneck is my Poetic Journey through life so far. I start the book with my Grandparents and go on through Love, Kids, Faith, as well as darker subjects like Addiction and Suicide. I have witnessed all of these in my short lifetime and hopefully I can help others know they are not alone as they walk through them as well. Come and walk with me and who knows, maybe we can laugh, love or commiserate together. I am a man in my sixties who was raised in the rural areas of Arkansas. I am the the father of four wonderful daughters and eight grandchildren and one brand new Great-grandson. My wife Susie and I are nearing our fortieth anniversary. I have for many years written poetry to be able to deal with life. It's very therapeutic to allow these thoughts to drift from my head to the tip of a pencil. It turns out these poems had quite a chronological order to them when i gathered them all up. The poems are just insights into my life from the very highest of highs to the very lowest of lows. I hope you can relate to many of these poems as you go through your life as well.
