Stan Stewart, Actor, Motivational Speaker, Poet

In One Out Of Darkness: Poems of a DC Brother, Stan Stewart presents a series of poems that are at once heartbreaking and heartwarming, inspirational, romantic, and sensual.

Stewart reveals his intimate experiences of growing up in inner-city Washington DC, including the pain of domestic violence, substance abuse, and other personal ordeals as a “street soldier.” Through his honest prose, he bravely presents a glimpse into the soul of an urban muse who has used grit and determination to survive. Stewart focuses on three major themes in his life: inspirations, reflections upon his heritage as an African American, and love, which he believes to be the most powerful and positive element known to exist.

One Out Of Darkness: Poems of a DC Brother artistically informs all that the black experience is unique and that one can survive and overcome by using lessons that only the streets can teach.


Excerpt

Dreamers
by Stan Stewart, 2007

We Dreamers See past the horizon,
knowing that day in our day may not be.

We dare to cast off these invisible chains of this tortured society.

And while the blood that is shed is ours, and it is our tears which stain our face,

We strive to make real our ancestors dreams, and run our leg of the race.

And run
our leg
of the race.
