5 Minutes, 5 Questions With... Deondriea Cantrice, author of Rhythm Can't Keep Time

With arguably the most classy book cover in African American Literature in 2009, Deondriea Cantrice's Rhythm Can't Keep Time is more that a love story.

Midnight November 24th, 2009 black America will enter an era of prosperity, wealth and economic growth. If it were not true I would not say it.

Before we leave the past behind raise your right hand and repeat after me.

We the willing led by the unknown are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much for so long with so little that we are qualified to do anything with nothing.

God speed to us all. I will see you on the other side… Continue

Dearly beloved of mine, i hope you realize
when my love for you is down on me
its like thunder lightning rolling stones from a mountaintop bringing rainfall on my midsummmer nights dream and its too sad here in Paris.

Or if I am twittering their article, I want to use their Twitter name so they know that their post had value.

Because of my constant searching, I have seen a few things that work well… Continue

7 deadly sins

Sin where it all began

In a perfect paradise

Acouple paid the ultimate price

Trading a piece of fruit for a lie

There insatiable appetite

As a greedy heart they displayed

All because of one angels envy

Turned himself into god's enemy

No longer could he be trusted

For after Jehovah's power he lusted

Became puffed up with pride

Now known as the father of the lie

But pride comes before the fall
