Soul of Man is the testimony of one man’s journey through the most essential of all emotions: love. Marshall unleashes his utmost personal accounts and pours his heart into every word, letting his soul guide his path. Through the poems in this brave volume, Joel speaks both of the wonderment love brings and the damage it causes. He writes of love’s hope, commitment, and temptation. His pen holds nothing back and his hand screams his angst with great abandon. Through it all, Marshall discovers that love, at its core, does not just conquer the heart but also heals the soul. “How do you measure the soul of a man? Simple: It’s impossible. It’s only when a man is brave enough to bare his soul and share with us its tapestry woven with secrets, love, emotion, and magic that we can even begin to wrap our mind around its value, its beauty, and its magnificent light! How do you measure the soul of a man? You don’t. You appreciate it, especially one as beautiful as that of Mr. Joel Marshall”—Tony Enos, Recording Artist.
Joel Marshall currently works and lives in Boston, MA with his two dogs Diego and Selma. He is still dedicated to featuring known and unknown poets on his website for the world to discover.
