"I Have Been" was entered into the National Poetry contest in 2005 and won the Editor's Choice Award. In the poem, They Left Me For Dead, was not a nature death, but a financial death.

During these difficult times in my life, I couldn't send my children money for their birthdays or holidays such as Christmas. As a child, I was told to be strong, walk with your head high.

In My Prayer, I thank the good Lord for protecting and keeping safe and holding back danger that could have come my way. In "Your Man," I communicate with the Almighty. I want him to know that in his presence I stand, trying to do the best I can, instill in me thy Holy Spirit that I will become the man, whom you are calling for his day, let my eyes stay on you instead of the pay.
