For author David P. Cresap, writing poetry began by accident, or rather, it was a guided experience, since he truly believes almost nothing happens by accident. In The Collection, he shares a volume of poetry revolving around the trials and experiences of his life. Cresap aims to teach and provide understanding in order to ease the burdens caused by some of lifes uncomfortable situations.
The included poems were written as a result of thoughts, situations, and emotions Cresap has personally experienced. Some came in dreams or spiritual lessons regarding the foundations and principals in the teachings of God. Others grew out of the authors love of the written wordplaying with words, sounds, patterns, and silliness. Inconcreto in nature, the works in this anthology solidify the purpose, goals, understanding, and meaning of ones life on earth.
Cresap shares this collection to help others understand their unique situation and apply the teachings relayed in the poems to enhance their own lives.
