The author, Willie James Harvey, spent most of his childhood growing up in a little country town in Georgia called Perry. He currently lives in Belle Glade, Florida, where he is a dedicated employee of Wal-Mart. His life as a black man has been filled with disappointment and pain, yet he has allowed none of it to discourage him. His life has led him on many journeys, and during these journeys, he has attained an eye-opening viewpoint on life. This book is a collection of poems that reflect his thoughts and views as a young black man. He believes that nothing can stop the human spirit, except for the willingness to settle for less. This book will connect his readers to his struggle as a young black man while provoking social conversation among the masses.
