Transformed not trivialized stylish not stigmatized
are a few who stand inches away from an abyss
as black as a thousand midnight’s
where the past holds majestic secrets and the future

Excerpt from the book Weapon of Choice
Weapon of Choice by Jeffery Martin
Aptly titled, “Weapon of Choice,” is a poetic, yet philosophical compilation of prose by motivational author and speaker, Jeffery Martin. This book is anything but pretentious. It speaks to real human struggle, to political truths, to religious exploitations, seasoned with gratitude and tender words of love. Above all, it screams truth. Martin has used his words, with the belief that the calling of a true poet should move readers to positive change and compassion, instilling a call to action in every person that has tasted the disparity that is.
