“For it is the pen that is laid to rest after a poem has been written…seeking a place to lay. However, it is the words written in ink, that etched themselves into our hearts and memories that will forever stay.” - Cleophus P. Franklin Jr.
I am pleased to announce the release of my new poetry book, "Words From My Heart…With Love"! This collection of poems is dedicated to the poets who write bravely, and creatively about what others are thinking and unable to do. And to those who dreamed, loved, and lived passionately, regretfully, and yet…stayed true.
