Andrew's personal poems reflect perennial existential themes, those considered for over a decade. These poems have been written in all manner of global contexts and different ontological moods. While some are short and insightful, others are long and contemplative, but they all express themes of wonder and anger, triumph and tragedy, inspiration and realization, love and confusion, death and departure, admiration, awe and an unrelenting sense for the value of being. These themes are intimately tied to Andrew's own experiences, and perhaps also yours. Readers are encouraged to sit with this poetry, to not rush too quickly into analysis, and to attempt find oneself also speaking in these verses.
