Who are we? Where do we come from? What is our purpose? These questions have been asked throughout our existence. Ever since the first campfire was lit, we have asked ourselves if we could do better. And we have wondered what lies in the future.

Exposed is a collection of poetry written by John McCarthy, first as therapy and then as an outlet for a vast expanse of emotions. His perspective has been shaped by thirty years of police and investigation experience and by being an avid hunter and nature enthusiast. This collection is the culmination of a four-year journey that begins with despair over a broken marriage and ends in redemption. It’s an honest reflection of life’s experiences and of a search for a higher calling.

This poetic journey begins with “Something’s Wrong,” in which two strangers in a long marriage pass each other as life goes by. They know everything about each other, but they do not really know the things that matter—particularly how to say the things that need to be said. The author’s melancholy path takes us through periods of reflection and self-pity, but it closes on a note of hopefulness.

Exposed reveals the poet’s enlightenment and purpose—his love of the mountains and the sea, and inspiration passing through old, lonely country towns that time has forgotten. Experience the world through McCarthy’s eyes and words: the tragic, the sadness, the lonely, the joy, the redemption, and the beauty.
