John Oross – Wandering Thoughts

Wandering Thoughts is “a personal collection of poetry, prose, open political letters, short stories, and lyrics based on personal options and experiences, mixing reality with fantasy to cope with my mental health challenges and overcome my bipolar disorder. Although I have been homeless four times in the past, through the love I have in my heart, I face forward to overcome my many losses and challenges.

It is my deep heartfelt opinion and belief that we need to come together as a whole for humanity to secure our collective future. This collection [embraces] themes of forgiveness, healing, reconciliation, and rekindling hope in our collective future.”
