In Therapeutic: Soul Searching Poetry, written by Black Ausar, readers witness inspirational experiences and thoughts through spoken word creativity. In six sections, we grasp what Black Ausar thinks and feels as he walks through this thing called life. The sections are Spiritual, Motivation, Pain, Sacrifices, Relationships, and Poetic Vault. In each section, I read a poem that touched me and could possible touch others, if they need inspiration.
Three particular sections felt the deepest as I read: Spiritual, Motivation, and Sacrifice. In section one, Spiritual, Ausar writes with "Rite", what we feel, we must write down, so they become a symbolic rite in our live. The poem rings short and powerful.
In the next section, Motivation, "Let Them Hate" discusses the need for those that in their cowardice hate without realization they help us grow; They become motivation. In the third section, Sacrifice, his poem, "My Name is Secret" burns without touching skin as it plows through a word and an entity that many people run from and run towards: secrets.
Ausar's words may best be served in front of an audience where tone and voice can definitely be felt. But, for those of us new to his work, the written collection serves as a great introduction.
