Memories This is just a small design of a memoir. History in its design, drama, and comedy. It reveals who you are while dealing with life’s ironies. Think, how would you write a book. This book has so many memories of my life. I needed to tell someone about the things I experience as an African American child Born in Washington, DC and ended up in North Philadelphia. How the influences in my life define who I am as a person. This book is a promise to God that I would write and publish my book. What would I write. I was already writing poetry. Purging my inner thoughts. 1800 Indigo House Excerpt from a life. A history in poetry, self-published on LULU.com. If you are “writer” you must ask yourself, what is my book about and what is it I want to say. Sit quietly and listen. Memories of events were rising to the top, and I started writing in lyrical poetry that stream close to my heart.
