This one’s really popular around the web for some reason.  I’ve found this guy popping up in all kinds of places.  Some sites never even credited me while others disected the piece for interpretation that was nowhere in the ball park.  Oh well.  Thought this would be a fitting visual to bring back to celebrate Eckovision hitting the 100,000 hit mark. 

My thanks to everyone who’s visited, purchased my books, and commented on these strange pieces.  I hope to have some new ones soon.  Time will tell 🙂

“Almost Human” Copyright © 2011 Scott Scherr.  All rights reserved.

Almost Human is a collection of poetry that takes a deep look into the corrupted soul of mankind, and his journey into pursuing something more than self. What is his relationship and effects on our tired planet, on each other, and just how far have we come to spread the plague of indifference? Love born out of a broken and humble place is the only solution to collectively climbing back out of the darkness on our way back to humanity.

“Kingdoms of the Young” Copyright © 2011 Scott Scherr.  All rights reserved.

Kingdoms of the Young is a collection of poetry that explores the triumphs of the youthful spirit and the value of maintaining its perspective in a world moving far too fast. May you be encouraged and uplifted by these hope inspired poems as Scott writes about dreams, love, youth, hope, God and living life, as well as his thoughts on the value of poetry itself. Dream big, stay young.

Kingdoms of the Young is now available at Amazon:
