Poetry in the Key of Truth

My Music


This book was five years in writing and includes over ten years of notes written when I was drowning in the incredibly painful and complicated morass of drug and alcohol addiction. Some of the most powerful emotions that I, as a human being, have ever felt were recorded on whatever paper that was around at the time. I swore to God that if I survived and didn’t totally lose my mind like so many around me did that I would tell anyone who would listen what it’s like to lose yourself completely to the “demon of nothingness,” as I call it, because it has the ability to transform all that you possess into nothing, nada, zilch, so fast that your mind can’t process it. There were times so depressing and painful when the thought of living through another day was a bad option. I wrote when I went into rehab and about what it took to find myself again. I wrote about the joy of recovery and the fight to have it and to keep it. I also write about hypocrisy, as I see it. While living on the “other side” of society, I was constantly exposed to “bullshit” of every kind. You name it, I’ve heard it, seen it, and probably done it. I’ve seen and played all the games. So now I’m allergic and when I encounter the “bullshit” and “game” out here, I write about it, try to expose it. Though I’m not the best Christian in this world, I do believe in God and the church. In my deepest despair, I not only wanted to die, I wanted my very soul to die too. I wrote about these things too. I’ve tried to include the outlook of “live and let live” in my poetry. Some things are whimsical, some about love, some are political, some dead serious. All of it, “my music.” Howard R. Logan, Jr.
