Greetings,

Readers, Poets, Word smiths, Writers

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

Widowed, father/grandfather of three adult children, 3 grandchildren              

Been doing my craft since 1966. It's not about fame, glory or profit it's all about sharing God's gifts and knowledge.  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 magazine ”Highlights for Children".  All of my teen life in high school team up with one of my best friends to collaborate on lyrics/songs one of my best friends William E. Davis (if your still around blessings and thank you) He went on to college graduated and became a Director in a Community Playhouse “The Laferne Williams Center" in our city for many years then thereafter promoted and moved to New York

 Next in Honors Creative writing class in High School  created the term "Short Story Plays:" submitted 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 chosen 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 creative 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)

It is though entered on the Poetry Soup entry maybe my 1st poem submitted?

2nd published work "This is of my Grandmother"   from "Celebrate: A collection of Writings about Women" 2014A UNO/ University of Nebraska at Omaha published yearly 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 mission’s works is to share my craft give what I got from the all giver God who is the author of ALL creativity ALL word(s). 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, Sylvester Stone, William Smokey Robinson,Norman Whitfield, Barrett Strong, Willie Hutch, Fonce Micell, Freddie Perren 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 its 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.

If you like, dislike, love, hate if it even make your belly ache

Should you shed a tear or laugh aloud

It’s OK if you just read one poem in this amazing journey

If I inspire or even cause you to talk

Enjoy with me please this these literary walk

 ”Write ON!!”

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