“Heart of a Champion” is a collection of poems that examine, as well as celebrate, life and realities in modern society. Love, romance, politics, among many, get their spotlight on the page with Carlton A. Weathersby’s words.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Carlton A. Weathersby’s book is a collection of poetry expressing deep emotion on love and relationships, current events, women’s rights, and racial justice in modern America. Below is a small exert of his work:


I’m young, black, and misunderstood
If I’m white I refuse to fight
Since I’m black I choose to fight
For my right to survive in life
The life I choose
Ain’t always what it seems
The life I live
Don’t define me
What would you do
If you was me?
Allow the system to
Silence, suppress, and discriminate
Against me or channel the hate
To exercise my right to fight
In a positive protest
To my First Amendment
What can I do?
I have nothin’ to lose
I’m young, black, and misunderstood

Readers who wish to experience this thought-provoking work can purchase “Heart of a Champion: A Collection of Poems, Volume 1” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
