Visions in Aye's Heart is a book of poetry that reflects spiritual beliefs & political views. Anytime we discuss politics and spirituality, it can easily become controversial. I don't care much for religion or politics. If you ask me, I will quickly tell you that I think it's all mostly lies & bullshit.
That is not to say that I don't have a relationship with God. I just don't allow men to define my relationship with the Divine. I have always been aware of a Divine presence in my life. Endowed with the knowledge of my earliest memory that I did not walk alone, and that as hard as life may have appeared to be, I would never be asked to bear a burden that was too large for me.
