My Soul Experience: Moods and Moments is E. Jones' first foray into the liretary world.

Many people know what they want to say, but not as many know the exact way to say it. At any point during the day, everyone is in some kind of mood, whether it is happy, sad, loving, or mad. During each one of those moods there are moments. E. Jones has gathered his own moods and moments and presented them as a literary depiction of one man's struggle between joy, sadness, life and love. By going against the grain and pushing the boundaries outward, Moods and Moments takes readers on a journey through his mind, as well as their own, while bringing to life many of the thoughts and feelings of those who do not "step outside of the box" and simply express themselves. Jones combines 54 poems of free verse and prose  to raise awareness, inform, and entertain all who indulge. We all can relate to the rewards and uncertainties that life sometimes brings, so examine, enjoy, discover, and embrace the story that is...My Soul Experience.

My Story

Superficial smiles and hand shakes

disguise how I feel when my hand shakes

from being nervous about moving on and getting older

The days seem colder now that thereís independence

No longer a dependence, parental help, or guidance

Answers no longer given, infl uential voices silent

Tests administered by lifetime professors

Classrooms are streets with no overhead projectors

All movies seen are the fi lmstrips of our lives

Played out in HD until all goals are realized

Or maybe not because failure is not beyond possibility

With world problems and obstacles

Itís hard to think positively

I saunter into my day blind to its final outcome

Not to be outdone by my work and how itís done

I run across strangers that seem to see my soul

My pain inside hidden, but some how they seem to know

I make a stop to kiss my girl to ensure her that I love her

My kisses console her fears, if any, of infi delity with another

Promises smeared by mistakes change direction in my step

I give to my purpose most of what Iíve got,

give to my confessions what is left

Hard steps with careful planning dictate my destination

Sometimes losing track of simple things

while deep in concentration

Failures in the past fuel motivations in the future

Until I find the hidden treasures Iíve often found the clues to

What moves you to tread forward,

though presently showing resistance,

is what will be rewarded through exhibitions of persistence

I keep that thought in my head as I weave between

mediocrity and hypocrisy deciding which way to lean

Sheen from the passing cars reflect my indecisions

Indiscretions, valuable lessons, and signs of my aggression

Iím often told by peers that I think well beyond my years,

but once Iím gone Iíll leave to examine

the breakdown of remaining tears
