Poems with No Glass Shield in Twenty-Fifteen
By: Jemel Williams
About the Book
Author Jemel Williams gathered the ideas for his first book, Writeen Fullfillment, while homeless on the streets in New York City in 2012. Never into drugs or alcohol – a simple family disagreement left him homeless. Instead of joining groups or focusing on deviant behavior, Williams channeled his thoughts and dreams on becoming an author.
After his registry by the Library of Congress for Writeen Fullfillment in 2014, he started having ideas for his second book of poems, Poems with No Glass Shield in Twenty-fifteen: 25 Short Poems: Volume 1. He began the first draft of the book in November 2014 and completed it in July 2015.
With Poems with No Glass Shield, Williams demonstrated a complex style of poetry that allows readers to derive their own conclusions from a variety of translations for one poem. Although the length of one poem is moderate in size, it shares common interest in today’s times and current events.
