Reviewed by Samantha Gregory for Readers' Favorite My Eclectic Collection: From the Confines of my Mind (Volume 1) By Ronald Allen Bell is a collection of poems on life and love. The poems include I Am A Machine. "I am a machine - I will go to work. Then the house I'll surely clean. Dinner I will make, power down, repeat, I am machine." I think this shows the monotony that we go through on a daily basis and how we automatically perform these daily tasks without thinking - like a machine. I think that the poem On Peace Do I Ponder is particularly poignant and will resonate with people, considering the current state of the world and everything that has happened recently in the news. "A world unified is a world wherein none will have power over another, therefore you will not see it anytime soon I am afraid." This is a very true statement. While we all strive for peace, it seems unobtainable in this day and age. Ronald Allen Bell has produced a nice collection of poems in My Eclectic Collection: From the Confines of my Mind (Volume 1). It reads more like a journal than a book of poetry. The pictures add to this look. It is the kind of book where you could find a poem to suit your current mood, so it would be good to have at hand. I think that this will be quite marketable as an insight into a person's mind and the way they view the world. I think the author has talent and will do well with his poems.

About MR Ronald Allen Bell

I was born with a propitious disposition and viewed the world with naive eyes. Outside play and imagination, was all of which my life comprised. When first it was I tasted of that which altered your perception, It pulled from deep within my core, my path then quickly changed direction. I felt the inner workings speed up within my mind, and I then quickly did perceive of all the worlds darkness and its lies; so I made a house of glass and then stripped down for all to see; and most of them that once were friends, had soon turned their backs to me; so you see at this point I was quite tempted for to cast upon them stones, but I refrained, and remained displayed, in time their true will to be shown. Why do they turn away thought I, what is it which they have seen, ? I only intended to reveal every side of mine, do they not like the real in me? I think I'll play a record, and I'll lose myself in tune yes, I'll call upon D. Bowie and we'll have lunch up on the moon; and then we'll beam on down to Paris and wake up Jim from in his tomb, and then we can hop on a three man scooter, get a drink and watch burlesque, if we don't get too lost in women we'll then find a spot to nest; and then we'll sit under the stars and write rhymes from in our minds; and we'll leave the finished works to the wind and let nature spread our visions wide. When I was young and lacking fashion I wore long hair which covered one eye. A brunette dream with inner keen parted it center, didn't inquire if I'd mind. Then she gave me root beer kissing with a stare of brown eyed pride; and she then called on me and I listened, my virgin me then soon did die. So very quickly from sweet innocents do big ones things seem to take control. I sometimes miss my childhood, yet still I prefer sex, drugs and rock & roll.
