Like Robert Frost, vivid, graphic and persuasive; and Maya Angelou, articulate, symbolic and meaningful.JERRY DOMATOB, Ph.D.In The Journey, the author uses a poetic lens to look at the paths all mortals use to journey to hell or to eternity. The simplicity in his presentation and articulation unveil the perplexing questions that all humans must one day answer as they forge through this undulating experience, here called The Journey. The poet affirms that there is one true God, all of whose attributes no human can fully understand.
