Preface . . .
Tucked away herein, between the creases, flyleaf’s and paper flapped pages of this book are the fractures and fault lines of my human heart. A heart that has endured much self-induced and inflicted trauma caused by a depressed mind. A depressed mind that has birthed self-flagellation caused by the thoughts of this sinful man. When asked what was wrong with the world, it is reported that GK Chesterton answered with the quote “I am” and that is what this book is all about.
So before you begin to read these writings I would just like to say, these are not the writings of a mentally unstable person. Nor are they the musings of a self-loathing man. They are not the ebbs and flows of a suicidal human being, (though they may read like they are). They are merely the results of a man who knows the truth about himself and the struggles that live within.
My hopes in your reading this book are that you might see you’re not alone. That I would know that I’m not alone. That you notice in most of them, I still find hope. And lastly that in reading them you would see my hope and in turn, gain hope for yourself.
My love to you all,
The Hyde I Hide by Billy Charles Root
This poetry collection addresses the faults we find in ourselves and explores how we can face up to, understand and survive the demons alive and kicking in our hearts and minds. Depression and anxiety are difficult subjects to talk about, often left undiagnosed and without a cure. In these pages, you will find a coping mechanism and a salvation that can only be found by being brutally and unapologetically honest with yourself.
