A Lifetime of Treasures
Unlocking the Keys of Life through Poetry
Written by Mary & Bryan J. Battle, Sr.

Our publishing goal is to spread the wisdom of one family’s journey through life. Our family has taken on the daunting task of discovering our past, writing through the present, and looking into our future through poetic thought. We write down our feelings and experiences in the most simplistic form known to man, poetry.
Poetry breathes past the pages of slavery.
Poetry writes through the hurt and pain.
Poetry is a key to survival as a people.
Poetry is not equal.
Poetry does not rest.
Poetry is a treasure chest.
We share our history with all humankind.
The rich, the poor, the divine 9.
Poetry is divided by greed.
Poetry can be a good or a bad seed.
Our history is rich in diversity.
Our history unlocks the key to be free.
By writing down our experiences of life in the form of poetry and other various media outlets, we will effectively reach the targeted audience, every reader. We have narrowed our writings down to a compilation of poetry and spoken word through the life of a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, monotheistic family. As we research and trace our heritage and racial makeup, we learn more about life and how we connect to those we love and cherish.
We desire that our compilations of life in written format will somehow inspire others in the family to carry the torch as we hand it off. As the demand for our literary works increase, we will supply more books, and continue the literary legacy that was long bestowed on our family. We pick up the pen and here is where we begin.
