Wisdom In Rhyme · Revelations of a Young Poet


Author's Note:

"This book began on New Year’s Eve 2004 in my Harlem, New York apartment.  I cried myself to sleep desperately seeking God for the purpose of my life.  His answer came the next morning through a simple and unexpected response within my heart, “I am a writer.  Write wisdom.” That day was the beginning of my journey as a Poet and a Writer.  A journey of hearing God’s voice and experiencing his heart.  Many of these poems were birthed during times of utter brokenness and difficulty.  But his voice sustained me, motivated me and revived me.  Someone recently asked me,  “Jessica, where do you get all these words?”  And the only appropriate response I have is ... “The Holy Spirit.” Truly, He is the writer. I am thankful to be the vessel He chose to deliver the message. "


With the brilliant rhyme schemes of a slam poet and the depth of thought of a philosopher, this book has certainly earned its title.  Contained herein you will find the deep spiritual urges of a young poet searching for truth.
