Writing has been a direct connection from me to God. When a friend saw my poetry book she started reading it and said she couldn’t put it down. She encouraged me to do something with it; I was seventeen then. Now that I have several more poetry books, I prayed and feel that this is what the Lord wants me to do. It’s one of my greatest passions, next to ministry and cooking. I pray this book ministers to you and helps you heal, restore, encourage, motivate and captures attention. Let the words sink and revive you, so that after you’re done reading this book, it will feel like you have just taken a breath of fresh air. There is something in here for everyone. If you enjoy reading “A Word Fitly Spoken”, there is more to come.
One thing I have noticed about poetry is writers create it when they’re in deep depression and those poems end up making you feel the same way you felt when you started reading them. So I have decided I would never end a poem or song on a down-beat, but always on a high note. Being the praise and worship leader, I find that sometimes in order to get to the next level, we have to encourage ourselves in the Lord.
As you read my book, please don’t just browse it — think and ponder on it and remember it. Let the joy of the Lord be your strength. There’s something in here for every mood I’m in, and if you can apply it to your life it will help you just the way it helped me. I hope and pray you enjoy it and will be looking for my other books.
Thank you for supporting me and my dreams!$19.99 Select options

Fragmented Blues comes to be more than 12 years after its conception. A collection of blues, war, travel, and love poems written to organize, describe, and even jive through rural realities and communities rich with history of southern literature. Influenced by iconic writers: Richard Wright, Etheridge Knight, Faulkner, Welty, Jerry Ward, Jr., and Margaret Walker, the book echoes traditional voices. Fragmented Blues was written in migration through the Deep South, Chicago, Southern Italy, onward to the Arabian Gulf in war time where the fantail of a U.S. vessel and a swaying darkened sea tide became the backdrop dredging lines displaying the faith and substance of life.
Fragmented Blues, Marcus’ second volume of verse is a fitting follow up to his first book. It contains 61 skillfully crafted poems that give the reader a sense of a young Black male from Mississippi discovering his place within the context of a complex and evolving global community. With “Fragmented Blues,” the title poem, Marcus brings his blues to commune with the future but he is ever mindful of the past.

White’s goal is not just to draw pictures of pain, but to pull back the pain and show that hope or possibility still exists. Yet, White does not appear as an idealist, but more of a romantic- a man who loves, is compelled to love, even if his love is not returned. And that is the hope that is seen and felt in his poetry- a hope that someone will read his work and realize that possibility of love.

Trees are amazing. They are as practical as a log on the fire. They are as mysterious as a dark woodland path. They are as imaginative as a child’s (or grownup’s) tree house. And so much more. There is a spirituality, wholesomeness, fun and wonder that can be seen in trees; in their variety, in memories evoked, in scenes enjoyed, in their revelation about the God of Creation, or in any of a hundred other reasons that they hold our fascination. Herein the reader is invited to walk between the leaves and recall some of these reasons …and see afresh the symmetry of these familiar shapes in the cadence of the words.
Heal the wounds of your heart. Enrich the nature of your soul. Live the life you deserve.
