“here…” an introspective by Author G. D. Grace

and me,

here…

In constant battle with fear

always trying to see things more clear

here…

fighting against the weight of these past demons

hoping to resolve issues with sound logic and reasons…

here…

making it happen in spite of what I’ve gone through…

moving ahead regardless of hateful words that some spew…

here…

standing as tall as I have ever stood

living as yes I can instead of wish I could…

here…

reaching for that star up high that glows…

finely tuning my life so that it flows…

here…

right here…

with this calculated rhythm beating strongly…

linking letters to words to be heard loudly…

here…

in the midst of everything and everyone…

rapidly walking except those times when I run…

here…

looking in to heal the pain…

in constant stride to see the gain…

here…

right here…

knowing the difference to see the truth…

deciphering misleading while identifying the clue…

right here…

captivated by ambition intrigued with faith…

recognizing that good things come to those who wait…

here I am

right here am I

exhausted sometimes but still giving in to try…

deeply searching for that place to be

enriched by all surrounding me…

here I am…

right here am I

Living it to the fullest until the day I die…

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
