In his new book, “The Poem of Life” (published by Balboa Press), Jose “The Gardener” Mendoza uses poetry to present an intelligent perspective on life, designed to answer questions and alter readers’ perceptions.
“As human beings, our purpose, talents, abilities, needs and questions are different,” Mendoza reflects. “The one thing that really makes us alike is that we all search for answers, to understand life. My book is like a blueprint that people can use to find the answers to questions that no one else has the explanation for.”
Organized into chapters including “The Key to Finding Your Purpose in Life,” “The Power of Common Sense,” “The Truth About Us” and “Poems of Inspiration,” Mendoza’s poems are filled with insights about life, love and hope. He encourages readers to respond to challenges with a positive attitude and stresses the importance of family and faith. Readers from all walks of life will find something to identify with in the pages of “The Poem of Life.”
