Soul of a Wolf - Poetry of a Veteran released on Paperback and Kindle
I remember feeling relieved that it was done ... and drained. Having a short term memory problem as part of my disability I often forget things that happen or certain difficulties that I live with ... if I'm lucky, a friend will remind me and that will help certain pieces of the jigsaw fall in place. It's not all bad though - I can watch my DVD collection over and over again and keep re-discovering little gems in certain films etc.
Jon Souza (author of 'My name is David Cole') wrote the foreword and Dr Ian Medley wrote a piece about living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and creativity. My sincere thanks to them for their contributions to the book and to Derek Thompson and Jacqueline Arnold for their proof reading.
Lynette Pinchess of the Nottingham Post gave the book the following review: "Raw emotions pour from Wolf’s pen. His poetry moves me to anger, it makes me sad and it makes me bitter about the injustice that he and other veterans face. But the fact that he can bare his soul in this creative manner is genuinely uplifting. Stirring stuff."
As with the other two titles (Words of a Wolf and The Way of the Wolf), Soul of a Wolf is an eclectic mix of poetry that shines a light on quite a few issues that Veterans live with in British Society, particularly those from other ethnicities ... but this title encourages people to see beyond the hate and divisive behaviour generated by certain factions of our society and to think for ourselves by examining the issues that affect our communities ... and making up our own minds based on our own interpretation of what we see going on around us. This is particularly relevant to the civil unrest being generated between certain extremists on both side of the religious/cultural/racial debate that the UK is currently facing.
