Poetry comes from different inspirational sources for different people. For many the muse is nature, love or history. Carl Keys’ inspiration for “Now That You are Here” (published by AuthorHouse) comes from personal experience and his strong faith.
By drawing from personal experience, Keys hopes the poems will be applicable to daily life and encourage outward thought from readers.
An excerpt from the poem “Embrace His Truth”:
“…you may want a change of name
His truth always maintains
When all else is lame
His truth still remains
We go by what we hear and see, but
That does not necessarily have to be
Embrace his truth”
