Have you ever read a poetry book, which crossed the lines of modern day subjects such as Love, Religion, Inspiration, Sex, Race, and Self-Preservation? Well my book entitled With All "EYE" Know, offers just that. With All "EYE" Know was written with numerous common/uncommon life situations and thought patterns in mind. My poetry covers something for all ages and walks of life. I assure YOU that a person would be hard-pressed not to find countless similarities as they read through the various poems that are within With All "EYE" Know. Communication has long since been the key to solving many of life's problems that are encountered daily. With All "EYE" Know steers the human mind towards realistic solutions. I have shared my poetry with many people across the world from east to west and north to south whom had or were dealing with the problems of life, and I am pleased to say that they have all walked away with a better understanding or approach towards the success of their lives. A Publishing House will gain immense benefits from my book by suggesting it as required reading to all formal universities, colleges, and schools of any type, not to mention, the vast book stores whom are eager to acquire at least one book with line crossing, mind stimulating ideas, and views rarely seen by many. I KNOW THAT YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT MY BOOK DOWN IN ANY FORM ONCE YOU'VE OPENED YOUR MIND TO IT. I TRULY THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION WITH THIS MUCH NEEDED BOOK FOR THE WORLD. MAY GOD! CONTINUE TO BLESS YOU! AS HE CONTINUES TO BLESS ME!
