0 Reviews
THIS BOOK OF POETRY STEMMED FROM MY EXPERIENCE IN THIS LIFE OF TRAUMA IN AMERICA. I WAS BORN IN A SMALL RURAL COMMUNITY LOCATED IN JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY TOWN OF PRENTISS MISSISSIPPI.

I HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO MANY LIFE EXPERIENCES: THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE INDIFFERENT. THIS EXPOSURE HAS GIVEN ME INSIGHT INTO THE MINDS OF BLACK MEN AND WOMEN. GOD HAS GIVEN ME THE VERSE TO SHARE THESE THOUGHTS WITH MY FELLOW MEN. IT IS MY HOPE THAT WHAT I SHARE IN MY POETRY WILL BE BENEFICIAL TO THOSE IN DESPAIR AND ENJOYABLE TO THOSE WHO ALSO UNDERSTAND THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF BEING BLACK IN THIS WORLD!!!
