Maurice Hayes grew up in the heart of Chicago's Westside community where gangs and drugs seem like the only living option. While amid his own tribulations, Maurice made the conscious decision to dig beneath the surface, the rough exterior of his upbringing, so that he could get to know himself better. It was then that this brilliant young man discovered his God-given talent for writing poems.


Although he found peace in his writing, he still decided to take it to another level and turned writing poetry into Spoken Word Poetry. The eyes of Mr. Hayes have truly seen a lot and that is what makes his work so inspirational. He speaks from his experiences and that is what makes his work personal.


Being empathetic is as easy as breathing air to him, which is what makes his poems a great motivation to those who read them. Reading his poems will not only motivate you, but they will also make you proud of yourself. They will make you laugh and even cry. Furthermore, there will be fresh thoughts and new visions of life swimming around in your heart. All of these are the reasons why Mr. Maurice Hayes writes poems and does Spoken Word as well.


This book will be enjoyed and will leave an imprint on the souls of all who come across it.
