About the Book

What IS this thing I call LIQUID SOUL POETRY? It is the WATER that quenches all thirst, and as the SUN evaporates it, you can see the steam rising. We are ALL 80 percent water and the Son of GOD touches us and our spirits rise into the heavens. We rise and we fall, like the sun. Our lives have high points and low points, yet somehow we continue to move forward, like the earth that rotates on its' axis. We are here TOGETHER in this universe and our past follows us. They say, "You can judge a society by looking at the condition of the women". From a historical perspective, you can see the strength of Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Fannie Lou Hamer, and others who struggled and sacrificed to make a change in our society. These same changes have affected and continue to affect generations of children and adults alike. As a man, I have had so many strong women influences. Though famous only to me, I felt compelled to tell their stories--through my eyes. This book is dedicated to all of the women who have shown me LOVE---Love that is total acceptance and unconditional.
