Whether or not they agree with my views and beliefs, my hope is that it inspires them to take a deeper look at themselves, their experiences, and the society that they exist within.

Writing for Timothy Brown is a way of a release, discovery, and healing. He invites readers on a poetic journey with the release of “The Keeper of Light” (published by Xlibris), a collection of poetry in conversation with the reader.
This book takes readers through Brown’s journey into adulthood as he discovers who he is and how he fits into the world. It lays bare his struggle with mental illness and follows him as he wakes up to the political landscape of his country. Brown explores what it means to have an identity, touching on everything from race and education to religion and spirituality. The vulnerability behind these poems allows readers to truly get to know the author and what he stands for.
An excerpt from the poem “I See My Art in Your Eyes” reads:
When I look into your eyes
I see life at its most bare.
For it’s you that made me realize
Art wears us all as a disguise
As humanity’s heir.
“I believe readers will find my book appealing because it gives an honest and vulnerable look into my life and the questions I asked when discovering myself and my place in this world. I think there will be a lot to relate to and think about for readers,” Brown says. When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, he answers, “Whether or not they agree with my views and beliefs, my hope is that it inspires them to take a deeper look at themselves, their experiences, and the society that they exist within.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.xlibris.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/825461-the-keeper-of-light

About the Author
Timothy Brown has spent his entire life in Illinois and has been shaped by the uniformity inherent to the Midwest outside of its cities. There is not much diversity shaping conversation and not many perspectives are challenged. This is why the 2016 election cycle marked the beginning of his identity’s awakening and the start of his interrogation of self. The emergence of starkly contrasting political ideologies not only between parties, but also within them, opened his eyes to a world greater than the one he was raised in. This exposure drove him to explore what it means to be an individual that is a part of a greater whole, and the consequences that ripple out from our choices. His work is focused on building an understanding with the reader of how our values and beliefs shape society.
