"These poems come from my deepest and darkest feelings during a difficult time in my life. I was inspired to publish them after receiving support from all those who read them.
Outcast's Lament And Other Poems reflect the trials and experiences I faced while growing up. I hope they capture the deepest and the darkest. These are the thoughts most of us feel, but may not vocalize.
My poems mostly come as stream of thought, and in truth, they are never finished."
First-time author Ahmed Abdel-Rahim of Alexandria, Egypt, is a dentist. He writes music lyrics and is fascinated with history, romantic poetry and fantasy. His next project is writing a fantasy novel.
