This is the second poetry collection by author Tom White. The first was called “Only what there is.”

50% of the proceeds of his new collection are donated to The Parkinson’s Association of Ireland.

“Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.”
Erich Fromm

“Then try to do
the tiny acts of good and grace in their timeliness

for in your preparedness to so do
the stars and their meaning
are made manifest

it is worth living in those places worth persevering

what is love other than perseverance
reaching out through pain
to take nothing
whilst giving
as much as you can bear.”
