Author Claims Poetry in New Book Saved His Life
“Depression and addictions brought me to a state where I wasn’t doing anything artistic anymore, and while in this state of darkness I started writing a story that I was suddenly and unexpectedly inspired with,” says Bresee. “Writing has turned out to be the most powerful weapon I know of against the demons in my life.”
“The Hidden Story: The Poetry of Jeff Bresee” is a compilation of free verse poetry covering topics of life struggles such as faith, addiction, depression, love and loneliness. In “Who’s Broken,” a lyrical poem that expresses loss of control, Bresee writes:
Your body bent to crippled chair / Up at the world you’re forced to stare / And watch from sidelines day to day / So fall the verses on my page / Your deafened ears, and muted voice / Reveal to me: you have no choice / But sit in isolation’s chair / The melody now comes to bear
“The Hidden Story: The Poetry of Jeff Bresee” is heartfelt poetry of universal experiences inspired by Bresee’s own desperate slip into darkness and combated by his persisting faith in God and family.
Jeff Bresee was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, but grew up in the farmland of rural Idaho potato country. Bresee attended Utah State University, where he received a B.S. in Civil Engineering. He now owns a civil engineering firm that specializes in outdoor sports venue design and lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife and five children. Bresee has formed his poetry into song lyrics, which he hopes to have recorded, and plans to release other poetry books in the future.
