About this title


Born in Orlando, Florida in the mid 1960`s. I was raised in a small town that was sleepy to say the least, Apopka, Florida was as rural as the state of Florida could offer, as laid back as a town could be and as violent as any wayward city could suggest. That's where I grew up. Apopka, Florida was not a place of great resources. I lived on the side of the tracks that left a whole lot to be desired. Outside of migrant work and flower nurseries, there was nothing big to employment Opportunities. My greatest childhood recollections of fun were, high school football games on Friday nights and family Excursions to Kelly Park (Rock Springs) Camping grounds to swim on weekends. I hated school but learned fast. And even though I rebelled a lot, I found that my mind was strong, my imagination was vivid and my views on life were huge. I wrote this book of poems because I knew that there was a voice, I possessed that needed to be heard. I've been through more downfalls and dealt with more drama than most peoples have ever had to face. Been to jail and to prison when I should have been on my way to college. Walked down dark roads and ran through fields all in a search for reason. I graduated in 1983 at 18years old. But my graduation Celebration was held in a Florida prison. The Department of Corrections has been blessed with my Downfalls. But now that I think about it, So also am I! I wrote this book out of strong feelings ,Deep studies, deeper convictions and beliefs that shaped who I am! The ramifications of my falling down and getting back up is what brought this extraordinary book to life. My faith in my creators' voice and his divine grace and unending mercies have given me my penmanship With a sound voice and strong mind. I Am Blessed! I chose this format to attempt to bless others now, with my gift of poetry and my insights on our planet earth as a struggling Black Man....The Author Billie Strong Jr.
