"Truth is clear
Yet hard to see
Know that some will
At your truth
Like birds of
But live your truth anyway
For it is the only clear
To all that matters"
Delight in each passing moment with author Michael Williams, as he celebrates the trials, triumphs and discoveries of living through his poetry. In the Light of Day is a remarkable collection of memories, messages, conversations and experiences that chronicle life lessons from childhood to adulthood from a father to his children.
The verses of In the Light of Day are more than a father's advice to his sons; they are a man's hopeful glimpse into a future of promise for all children. It is truly a tribute to the strength of the human spirit, and a reminder to every reader that dreams are meant to be realized, futures are meant to be built and that anything can be accomplished if you believe.
In the Light of Day is one of the few books written from a father's perspective to his children, providing a unique view that has yet to be thoroughly explored in the genre of poetry. The universality of this wonderful collection of poems lends itself to readers young and old, at any stage in their life, and most importantly, reminds us all that "It is a miracle that love only remembers what remains in the light of day".
