About the Book

This is a book for every person who has ever gone through trying times and wondered why they had to suffer the harshest trials of life. The lesson I have learned in the course of writing it is that “nothing happens to us, but everything happens for us.” This is in accordance with Romans 8:28, which says, “All things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose.” I hope that your reading it will help you see that even when life is the darkest, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. It wasn’t until after losing all hope that I learned that there is indeed hope for all who are joined to the living. So I pray that whatever you do that you won’t make the mistake of seeing the clouds overhead as a sign that the sun will no longer shine on you and your life again, because believe me, it will. Both it and God are always just waiting to brighten your tomorrows and dreams. Let this small book be an inspiration to you as you prove yourself more than a conqueror through the one who strengthens you—Christ.

He received his GED from the Chicago City Colleges (1981) and obtained a certificate in Graphic Arts from Southeastern Illinois College (1987). He is a former member of the Pan-African Revolutionary Socialist Party. He spent twenty years in prison and ten in Elgin Mental Health Center. While in the hospital he wrote over eight-hundred poems, three books of daily meditations, and numerous speeches and Afro-centric anecdotes. He also acted as a mentor for younger consumers while there, leading his own peer-support groups and chairing GROW for four years (2003-07). He has published four books, A Ten-Part Book to Maximizing Your Potential, Life Poems, Three-Part Process to Breaking the Recidivism Cycle, and Young, Gifted and Black, since getting of the hospital in 2013.
