About the Book

My Life, My World, My Truth is a collection of poetry by Jason A. Grant that reveals the author's soul as he negotiates through life and reflects on all that makes up the world he inhabits. From the self-affirming “I am Africa” to the combination of rage and hope displayed in “The Last Poem,” My Life touches on a variety of thoughts and emotions, including love, vibrantly exhibited in the chapter “Scorpio.” This collection of poetry represents poems written during Grant's teenage years through his present young adulthood.
