Description

"Scraps from God's Table" is a collection of poems that has been years in the making. The poems provide glimpses into the life and ideas of an African American man growing up in Detroit. From the beautiful subtleties of falling for someone for the first time to, the subsequent fear of falling in love after heartache that many of us face. The ideas presented in the collection are heavily influenced from life as a Christian and dealing with the concepts of religion. Many of the works deal with the struggle of trying to do what's right in spite of influences to do otherwise. There is an honesty lent to the verses that show, beauty, humility, and fragility of humanity. The works deal with the sense of abandonment in "Papa's Gun" and living in crime ridden environment in "Princess Pixie Dust." The poems serve not only as stories or ideas but are meant to inspire and serve as fuel for readers to be inspired long after reading.show more
