Prophecy of Dreams is a collection of poetry and prose occupied with issues of identity, spirituality and love. Christian Lowe’s first foray into poetry brings a sense of universality and insightful honesty and leads the reader with its quest to find out life’s truths. Opening with the poem, Night-a striking dialogue with his alter ego emerges. It is at once, an insomniac’s quest for truth about himself and a timeless question of whether to fall prey to society’s influence or forge a newer, braver path. A unifying thread binds the collection together in three sections and ponders life’s biggest questions. Lowe completes the collection with an afterword asking the reader to take up the creative torch and be the change needed in today’s world.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The main inspiration of this book was my sleeplessness. I wanted to create a book about all the things I think about when I can't sleep. The book is separated into three parts, each part beginning with a poem consisting of a dialogue between my consciousness. My indecision, fear, anger, regret, versus my calm, wise, and hopeful side.
Thoughts and prayers.
That's all you have to offer?
Three words so disconnected from empathy.
Three words never sounded so cowardly.
Thoughts and prayers cannot bring back what is lost.
They do not change future outcomes,
They do not save future victims.
Only actions can.
It's your choice to make, there is change that you can create,
So will you act upon these thoughts?
Because at the end of the day, you are the only one who can answer your prayers.
Because thoughts and prayers do not create change.
They are the ultimate bystander, they prove you are afraid.
So are you afraid?
Instead of taking action, you sit there and stay,
In your fortress of hypocrisy, inaction, and disarray,
While six feet under, the others lay,
Because all you could do was pray.
