James Taris
BE MY INSPIRATION
Inspirational songs and poems

This book (ebook) is crammed with positive and inspirational words.

Written over a period of 31 years, you will find a wide variety of subjects and situations covered within these 'green pages'.

It's unfortunate that in today's world people are very quick to criticise and ridicule, when it would be just as easy and so much more productive to praise and encourage instead.

James Taris used these poems to block out all the negatives he came across in his daily life. By replacing them with these self-motivating and uplifting verses, he built his confidence in spite of the nay-sayers all around him.

Written in chronological order (newest to oldest) you can follow James' journey back through time to the very beginning.

It's an inspirational journey in itself, with autobiographical stories accompanying each poem to help the reader become more acquainted with James' life story, thus being able to relate to his poems much better themselves.

INSPIRATIONAL POEMS

"These are the poems I enjoy most of all, so you may like to start here. They're full of motivational and inspirational verses. They'll certainly lift your day." ... James

It's not just poetry

James has developed a unique way of presenting his poems. Instead of merely offering a selection of creative and entertaining poetry, he has also added a couple of other useful and attractive features:

1) Autobiographical trailers

After each poem, James gives some addtional information about when, where, why and how he wrote the poem and/or a glimpse of his life and activities around the time the poem was written. Thus adding an interesting insight with each poem.

2) Creative images (in ebook only)

Plain text on a page can often look bland, so each poem features an image with 2 imaginatively manipulated versions to decorate the poetry page.

So prepare yourselves for a literal and visual extravaganza.

What people are saying

Rt. Hon. James Taris, You are as full of life as anyone can wish for! What makes you genius? Who makes you genius? How it all happens just like that in your case? All these sorts of questions can be answered in one sentence! "A POET IS BORN NOT MADE! AND SO IS THE GENIUS!" No one can be a writer like James Taris by taking up some story-writing course or just going to some sort of university! You can't be Bruce Lee by just joining a Kung Fu club of some sort! All in all you are like a mighty pacific whale which dosen't need swimming lessons! A sort of albatross who does not need Pan-American to fly! ... Please try not to change your way of life as it is wonderful as it is! ... Dhanjisha! (India)

I read your poem 'She's A Gorilla'. Personally I wouldn't say I hate it but it is not my style. The one I really like is "Heaven". The others are more like lyrics and as I am not very musical I can't make them come alive. My failure despite being named after the saint of music! Like you, I write poems because it is therapeutic. Cecilia (Australia)

I had a first glance at your web site which is really great (read also some of your poems which I found very expressive, personal and professional and would love sending you some of mine ... but they're all in German.) Dagmar (Germany)
