Review of my book

My book has been reviewed by Melanin Book Bloggers, it has been rated five stars also described as being powerful. This is what they had to say;

Soul Cry takes you on a journey. Somehow Xavier J. Frazier has manged to put into words the frustration, despair, injustice, love, hope and struggle we all feel at one point or another.

Through his words you are able to envision yourself walking among the natives of Kingston, Jamaica. He brings you into to a world that resonates beauty, music, danger, death and survival.

No poetry masterpiece wouldn’t be complete without the battle of LOVE. “I love you but I had to keep you in the dark, for I know the truth would’ve torn your heart apart.” ~ Guilty Conscience

I believe every writer can identify with “Chaos of the Mind”. My favorite passage for this poem is: “How can I see the beauty of my mind? When it’s in complete chaos?

Other favorites: Distant Heart, Black Skin, BLACK WOMAN, Destined for Success, Sorry is Foreign (love, love, love this one).

Offer to read and review.

Xavier J. Frazer.

A review of my book

Author: Xavier J. Frazer


Book: Soul Cry


Reviewed By: Realistic Poetry International

 

Author Xavier J. Frazer did an extraordinary job with his epic compilation of poetry entitled, ‘Soul Cry’, a book of poems that literally provides you with the ultimate reading experience! He opens this poignant poetic volume with a jovial formal introduction that makes for an official literary presentation, coherently representing his beliefs, views, and individuality.


Analyzing the contents, you straightaway recognize the hard work Frazer invested into this poetry classic, as he has each set of poems gathered into their own specific sections: A Trembling HeartWhy Love;What Remains; and lastly, Black Skin; each providing an informative and intelligently perceptive read for the audience! The Author’s talent shines like pure radiance as he pours out articulate verbal expressions that are thought-provoking, evocative, and can even be considered wittingly philosophical. 

 

From start to finish, the written collective is crafted with words that are dressed in intrinsic honor, respect and outspoken compassion; kindling the intellect within the mind, while challenging the transparency of the soul. Each set of poems is distinctly defined by an extreme sense of cultural identity, personalized awareness, and last but not least, valuable and indispensable pieces of wisdom; in which each layer of truth from his words can be stowed away as a perpetual and eternal treasure.


So, whether it be tears of extreme joy or cries of heartrending sadness, we assuredly say to you; in reading this book, you will indeed absorb the enthralling power and influence of a weeping soul. Bravo, Author Frazer.  

A TREMBLING HEART

This is an excert from my self-published poetry collection befittingly entitled’Soul Cry An Anthology’.

I ask all of you my followers and friends to go support my book, get your copy from Amazon, I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed. So please support a fellow blogger and poet, after all we all travel along this worded path an without support, love and encouragement we won’t be who we are. 

Thanks in advance, Xavier J. Frazer

State of Insomnia

I’m an insomniac
Tormented by this reality,

where innocent smiles are nothing but façades of murderous grins.

Old enough to not be scared

Yet still I am afraid of bed time stories,

For they turn out to be nightmares.

And the lullaby’s you hear sounds like an episode of beetle juice lost in auto tunes,

A remake of Beethoven’s Scary masquerade.

Tired of these Insomnia’s

I really need to get some rest.

But,how can I sleep knowing that I will be waking up to the horrific news

Of lifeless bodies laying in the streets,

Be it close or in some remote location

I have yet to discover.

I never believed in fairy tales
Given the trajectory of the times I wish I had,

This may seem girly but I wish

I was Alice in wonderland or perhaps Dorothy in the wizard of Oz.

A click of my heels would take me to an utopian home

As chaotic as things are I have to deal with this mentally derange zone,

A zone where everyone is suffering from some kind of sleepless hypnosis.

As madness and lawlessness roam free

Sporting faces of glee.
