It's been said that a man must first move himself before he can move the hearts of others. In this diverse collection, Steven Manchester not only intends to capture the thoughts of his readers, but aspires to touch their souls as well. As a compilation of his first three collections of poetry, A Search For Inner-Peace, The Never-Ending Quest and In Layman Terms, the author discovers that the joys of life are not found in answering life's great questions, but rather- in asking. In essence, it is the journey that inspires the poetry within, not the idea of actually finishing the trip. Throughout Still, both verse and prose are unified in a hopeful theme and tone, while Manchester maintains his deliberately simplistic style of expression. He prefers that his readers search their mind and heart rather than being forced to dissect and analyze each poem's meaning. And undoubtedly, it is the human heart for which he aims. Having drawn inspiration from family, friends and the kindness of strangers, for Steven Manchester, every poem found in Still proved to be a labor of love. Ten years from the very day he put pen to paper, this diverse collection was born.
