Collection of Poetry
By: Jacob Mashburn
About the Book
Jacob Mashburn’s Collection of Poetry draws inspiration from author’s personal experiences and struggles with OCD and depression. The lines of his freshman poetic collection touch upon the rawness of the darkest and most difficult times in life. The poems are an account of childhood memories and follow along often confusing paths into adulthood, along a dark and uncertain road we all must follow. As much as Collection of Poetry examines the shadows of the human mind, it also inspires hope. Prayer and faith may be tested, but they will help in the darkest moments.
