About Jimmy D. Robinson
Full of despair, destitute, and homeless, Jimmy D. Robinson began creating descriptive sentences in his mind and then penning them on scraps of paper or anything he could find. Much of the poetry in his books was written during these times. Gazing at the moon, the stars, the clouds, the sun, searching for anything that would give him hope--hope to live, to overcome, and to triumph. It can be said that poetry saved Mr. Robinson's life for when he began writing, he was overwhelmed with feelings that he hadn't experienced in a long time. Poetry made him reflect and look inward and gradually, he found the more he wrote, the better he felt. It was never his intention to be a poet, he just did what came naturally. By publishing his books, Jimmy Robinson wants his readers to know that no matter what depths one can sink to, there is always a chance for change. His came in the form of the written word, for others it may be another creative force, but be assured that in every living human being there is always a chance to hope and to change.
