This book is a collection of poetry and song lyrics. There are 10 poems and 13 songs. Both collections a quite eclectic, ranging from love to death, joy to fear, and serious to silly.
Most of the songs were written during the time that Mr. Egan was deployed in Iraq. The songs are about being in love, missing home, feeling lost and afraid, and overcoming hardships. All of which were experienced during the deployment. When Michael returned from his time overseas he continued writing song lyrics. The songs have a lot of emotion behind them and are written in the style of Bruno Mars.
The poems are a collection of randomness. There are some poems about old crushes and some about honoring the dead. There is a poem about facing death and a few that really defy all categorization.
