About the Book

Enjoy the poetry of a man blessed with a gift. The words fell from grace, filling his pen and spilling over onto paper.

Life’s Lyrics is the first book of poetry by Joffrey B. Hooks. It is filled with the innocence of a young black poet. Contained within these pages are the poet’s reflections of life, the genesis of brilliance, and the essence of power. It is an uplifting and enlightening ministry. The poems in this volume tell a story, foster faith and touch the heart with a style and message all its own.
