Question of... by Shawn Simmons

Question of...

has been a life-long dream of mine. It is my first publication entirely of my own poetry. My verse has been a salvation for me through the roughest years of my life, and now I want to share that passion with you. I want you to understand the internal strife that comes from being alive in this millennium, the lost generation searching for purpose and the tearing of a man in an urban setting searching for the essence of self.

From Philadelphia with sincerity,
Shawn Simmons

My poetry has been published in numerous anthologies. As the years wore on, so did my cynical snapping style of writing. It wasn't about love and the flowers smelling pretty. It became the fury. It became the realness of the situations that we all face. It became about the depressions that we know and accept as part of our very essence.

I also have some of the best people I know at their respective skills. You can learn more about them by clicking on the "Staff" button to the left.
