19 Years in the Universe
Welcome to a world where peace, love, unity, and abundance are common.
"19 Years in the Universe" is a rare collection of 44 original poems whose aim is to create awareness, spread positivity, provoke thought, and inspire greatness in the minds of American youth-and the American citizenry as a whole. Author Rasheed A. Goldring set out to compose these vignettes in order to send a dynamic positive message to the world, and to help preserve the dying art of American literature.
This is a truly inspiring collection in light of the fact that all of the poems were written when the author was just 19 years old. Having experienced, learned, and endured so much by such an early age, the most symbolic way Goldring could find to communicate his experiences was through the art of poetry.
Inspired by the never-simple experience of life, Goldring invites us to explore the earth's positive history and to become a part of its burgeoning future. From faith to family to love, "19 Years in the Universe" covers nearly all aspects of humanity, allowing us to relate-if not to one topic-to many others. There is truly something in this compilation for each of us.
Goldring, a native of Washington, DC - a city not always recognized for its creative and open minds - believes that the most common human trait is not found in political posturing, but in the search for some kind of truth amid the everyday chaos of life. "19 Years in the Universe" offers one path to that truth and meaning.
