Taste Your Emotions is a book of 100 poems with 10 chapters containing 10 poems each telling a story of the struggle for physical, emotional, and spiritual sobriety. The poems express a variety of emotions taking you through an experience from deep pain to the joy of emotional freedom. More akin to a self-help book, this book is simply not a book of poems it is a dark journey of addiction leading to a bright awakening of the soul. The poems are both heavy and light, culminating in a moving expression of strength and determination. You will not just read these poems you will experience them. Come now and taste your emotions.

A sobering account of a young man's attempt to conquer drug dependency. Sturt's first artistic venture promises "100 poems that take you on a journey of enlightenment,"

These pieces, purporting to track Sturt's descent into drug and alcohol addiction, and subsequent recovery, are divided into ten sections, ranging from "Broken Soul" to "The New Me." Introducing each segment is an author's note that not only provides the subject of the next ten poems, but also instructions on how to read them¿for example, "Before you read these poems of love here is a little to help you understand my state of mind"; or "Be brave and read, my pain and anger."

Sturt's ability to overcome his addiction through poetry is truly admirable
