Professor Righteous gathers his thoughts and emotions and casts them into a series of powerful words. “Can’t be Soul(ed) Out” (published by Xlibris) is a collection of poetry that strives to make readers reflect on life; to accept its realities, to bask in its energy, to face its avalanche of trials. Each poem booms with a pulse of passion and expression. Relentless waves of rhythm and rhyme crashing into the reader’s soul resonating both the bliss and misery from their experiences.

He laces poetic substance with artistic skill aiming to stir the thoughts of his readers with insightful and mind-warping matters. This fiery compilation of poetry expresses the endless depth that can be found within life.

Exploding with wit, fervor and inspiration, “Can’t be Soul(ed) Out” portrays the ups and downs of life through the undeniable gravity of words.
