“I only need to see sunshine one time to know that the sun rises.” – Those are words of wisdom from the inspirational and motivational new poet, named Melvin L. Williams; a young Black male who is filled with a zest for life, tempered with what others describe as an old soul. “I tend to favor the conversation of folks older than I,” Melvin explains. By the age of seventeen, he had already formulated what he considered to be his plan for success; deciding to join the military and then go on to college, Melvin was intent upon choosing and enjoying a fulfilling career that would become his business. “I have a vision for how to live the “good life,” he says, explaining why he’s refused to settle long-term for a boring job or doing something just because it's expected of him.
His authored title "A Man of His Word" is an anthology of the transformation of Melvin Williams from a naïve seventeen year old musician into a thought-provoking poet. The title beckons readers to re-examine their feelings and notions about life, love, tragedy, and the routine of everyday existence. Each poem is brazenly candid yet coy, while maintaining a steady voice that is uncompromising and intelligent, experienced and even sometimes cynical.
