Greetings,

Readers, Poets, Word smiths, Writers

 My name is James Edward Lee Sr.  I'm a Amateur lyricist, poet, songwriter, artist

Recently widowed, father of three adult children, two grandchild               

Been doing my craft since 1966. Got one of the two only published works when I was in the 6th grade a poem entitled "Three Witches" was published in the National children trade mazgaine  "Highlights for Children".  All of my teen life in highschool team up with one of my best friends to collbrarate on lyrics/songs one of my best friends William E. Davis (if your still around blessings and thank you) He went on to college guauated and became a Director in a Playhouse in our city for many years then there after promoted and moved to New York

 Next in Honors Creative writing class in High School  created the term "Short Story Plays:" submited a piece which was written words, story, character placements/story board plus added lyrics/music score. This was a grade of 1 for that class, And was choosen to be placed at a local College to be acted out. But at the last minute the play got pulled due to censorship. (Which if were done today 2000's it would have been done :)

Play was titled "Mother's Baby Boy" 1970 (had a follow up play called "The 12 Months of May"

Lyrics and Music were creatived by me for the plays in my creative writing class in high school.

Now...2014 poem  " AT Naught "  selected by publisher Eber & Wein publishing company from their sponsored contest. (selected but not published due to lack of funding on my part at the time so publication was tabled)

2nd  published work "This is of my Grandmother"   from "Celebrate: A collection of Writings about Women" 2014. A UNO/ University of Nebraska at Omaha published book.

3rd  published work getting honorable mention win was the Dramatic monologue poem titled  "I'm A Teen This is What I Struggle With" again at UNO/University of Nebraska

My missions works is to share  my craft give what I got from the all giver God who is the author of ALL creativity ALL word. As of now just a hobby  ( but you never know could be a retirement/professional  thing)

List of authors, poets, writers, lyricist whom I kind of pattern my gift after and followed as well as studied;

     back in the days.....

Maya Angelou, Bill Withers, Slyvester Stone, William Smokey Robinson,Norman Wiltfield, Barrett Strong, Willie Hutch,Fonce Micell, Freddie Perrel Christine Yardian, William Davis  Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield,

now...

Chris Tomlin, Brandon Health, Marvin Winans, Benjamin Winans, Jamie Grace, Percilla Winans, Jazmine Murray, Jordan Feliz, Mark Hall

It's not about fame, glory or profit it's all about sharing God's gifts and knowledge

So like, love, hate, agree, disagree it's all okay just read along I might have something out of the 50 years + and over 3,000 lyrics/poems that will bless your heart and soul

"There's praise in words and word in praise"----------James Edward Lee Sr.
