We’ve all tried to find love in many ways and places, oftentimes falling out of it or being broken by it. We’ve grown up with this fascination of love as the end-all, be-all to our lives’ wants and needs. But what if love wasn’t just a set of rules and expectations that we’ve conditioned ourselves to believe? What if finding love meant the total surrender of heart and life to the pursuit of a fantastic adventure? What if the journey of finding love meant finding something worth far more?
The Love Manifesto takes readers on a poetic journey into the depths of the soul through the memoirs of Kuya Paul, a young man who’s experienced passionate struggles, agonizing failures, and exhilarating victories. In this book, Kuya Paul reflects on his ventures of dating, romance, family bonds, and friendships, through the voice of poetry and spoken word. He challenges readers to take on their own quest to find, discover, or even to rekindle love.
