Rain on the River is a book of poetry about one’s struggle to fit into a world in which he or she was not designed to fit into. The river represents one’s life; the rain represents the afflictions placed upon the individual.
The poetry in this book tells stories of personal strongholds and the highs and lows that a person of bipolar disorder, depression and childhood sexual abuse goes through. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ty Anthony Foster.
You might say, who is he? It doesn’t matter, however, because this book is for the Ty Fosters’ of the past, present and future all across the globe. This book is for those who can relate to these personal issues as well as those who want to get an understanding of what life is like for someone suffering with these afflictions.
I can relate because I, unfortunately, suffer from all of the above. Diagnosed with Bipolar II (depressed) in 2001, I began writing poetry. I pour out all of my deepest thoughts of joy, helplessness, suicide, love, pain and all that comes along with in these pieces. There is no better expert than one who has experience up close and personal.
If you are someone who suffers with the inability to cope with life due to these issues or just someone who wants to get to know us, this book will help you to relate and know that you are not alone, or get a clearer insight into our universe. The hope is that you may be able to adapt to living with those of our nature without taking it personal.
