"Only when viewed from the eyes of innocent children does one see the true splendor of life and the exciting experience that it is. Viewed from the perspective of us grownups, all that is visible are the numerous struggles and hardships," says Drew Bialko, the author of the book. " We somehow lose the plot and start seeing it all in black and white as we grow up and somewhere along the way, forget to appreciate the real colors in life. My poems bring this fact to the limelight and are aimed at creating a longing in each one of my readers to try and live their lives like children would!"
Drew Bialok's debut book of poems, "SELFISH," is being touted as one of the most interesting compilation of contemporary poems to be released by a first-time author in the recent months.

His unconventional writing style, choice of topics and the way he treats the subject are totally unique and that's what makes him all the more endearing as a contemporary poet.
"Being a creative person who has appreciation for good music and great affinity for unadulterated fun in life, expressing my feelings through writing poetry comes naturally to me. I don't allow the regular chaos in life to deter me from my resolve to have fun, no matter what. And this is exactly what my poems are all about," speaking on the inspiration for his poetry, the author says. "The world would be a lot better place if we could unlearn quite a few things and hang on to the innocence that a child has. The world is so much more exciting a place, and more happier and colorful, from a child's carefree point of view and this is the essence that I have tried to capture in my poems."
