The dominant-mass culture rarely is granted an opportunity to divulge into the honest thoughts of a young poet who happens to live in the ghetto. The verses of literary artistry may be used to enlighten the mind and bring enjoyment into your life and the lives of others. These eighty-two poems, which range in topics relating to spirituality, love, betrayal, ghetto life, poverty, and feelings of hope, may challenge the preconceived notions and pejorative stereotypes that one may have about the ghetto and its residents before being exposed to their inner thoughts and personal feelings. Rays of Sunshine from the Hood, is a candid account of a young black urbanites plight to obtain any semblance of hope and decency while attempting to gain his independence within the context of the American dream. This look into this dynamic can be eye-opening to the reader and may reveal the commonality between all people who struggle to survive and keep their sanity in an oftentimes strange world.---Holmer Maurice Johnson
