Summary

Vaughn Benjamin, Midnite's lead singer, has hundreds of poems and unrecorded songs that he has now chosen to begin to release in print form. This volume consists of 126 pages and more than 120 poems, ranging from song-length poems to 3 line masterpieces. Original line art by Midnite album cover artists like Marcus and Junior Daniel complement the written words beautifully. The rich imagery, depth of content, word mastery, rebel spirit and freedom of thought within these works are as powerful as his recorded songs.

 

One excerpt:
