About the Book
A Smothered Scripture is a collection of poems that celebrates my family background, culture, and quest for love. The 67 pages make up three chapters entitled: The Catalyst, which maps out my background with pieces of my family history; The Conversation, which is my discovery of Love; and The Consciousness, which consists of a few of my comments on Black culture in all its tests and triumphs. My hope is that you can connect your own life experiences to the anecdotes I describe within my poetry. Please enjoy A Smothered Scripture and share with others!
