Thank you, Mother

This work, The Soul of a Poet, is the reflection of a lesson I learned early and one that I have tried to share throughout my life - the importance of the choice(s) one makes in life.

A woman I never knew, my mother, was violated and raped. She passed away when I was two years old.

In my mind, GOD spoke to her and said, “Ella, keep your darling son, and through him, your Victory will be won.”

Without her choice, there would be no me!

I love you,
