It goes beyond the pages of a college degree to share lessons of the workplace that are essential in building a career.
Life, Lyrics and Love. This book is a compilation of poetry and lyrics that share this journey called life from the perspective of a young man, father, mentor, lover and caring spirit of hopeful hearts.
Darick J. Simpson uses the art of writing poetry as his personal method of healing. A strong man with a sensitive side, Simpson uses spoken word and smooth jazz music to traverse frightening areas of the mind and heart where mystery lies and teaches lessons of bravery about the shadows and the light that surrounds the human soul.
"Thank you for coming to talk to our class. While you talked about your career, I could tell you were very passionate about it. You explained how at one your meetings, you were one of the only African-Americans. That shows you shouldn't let what you look like, what you believe in, or anything get in the way of your dreams. I liked the part where you compared a big brand like Chanel to Walmart. I took this as am I going to be the student that the teachers will tell their colleagues about, or the troublemaker who the teachers will warn the other teachers about. Or even sports, for example. Will you be the one who goes above and beyond and works 110% or just goes through the drills."
Ooooh, No Space Between us, will make you close your eyes and loose yourself to somebody!
"Hello, Mr. Simpson thank you for talking to my class today. I loved everything you said especially when you said to know what you're good at and focus on that thing. For example, when you said ¨if you know how to talk to someone and keep them interested, you can be a public speaker¨. Also when you said ¨if you know how to do math and work well with numbers, you can be an accountant and work with people's money¨. This showed that I can use talents that I thought couldn't help me in life and use them to pursue a job that I am good at and love."
I could just listen to the music, or, I could just listen to the lyrics, but when you put them together it is an unbelievable experience.
My favorite is No Space Between Us, I smiled, I laughed and I cried. It made me think of special people that have been in my life and want to reach out to them.
You are a blessed man, people just don’t write their thoughts and feelings like this in music anymore. This is a great piece of work, it will make a woman want to stay.
Climbing The Corporate Mountain is a perfect book for a young professional like me. It made me think about my future in a different way.
