It is not worth buying this book new or used to read a "one trick pony."
Ryan Tilley
Filled with poems that tantalize just about every emotion, Fisher treats readers to a voyage into his inner being.

After watching Denzel Washington's film, "Antwone Fisher", and hearing 'Who Will Cry for the Little Boy' on the movie; I was deeply moved by the poem that I started looking on the internet for any of Antwone Fisher's published work(if there were any at the time). Surprisingly, there was and this was one of the books that I picked up. The book covers a wide range of emotional poetic works that anyone can definitely relate to. I have to admit, Antwone is one of the most talented writers that I've ever read in my time. I look forward to more of his thoughts, feelings and poems if he decides to continue writing.

Who Will Cry for the Little Boy is a must-read for anyone with a love of poems or not. This is really good stuff.

WHO WILL CRY FOR THE LITTLE BOY by Antwone Fisher is a small book of poetry
that packs a mighty punch. Filled with poems that tantalize just about every
emotion, Fisher treats readers to a voyage into his inner being. WHO WILL CRY
poetically chronicles Fisher's development from a troubled boy into a man who
has fully taken control of his own destiny.
These poems are poignant and emotional. They evoke a sense of intimacy which
makes you want to hug the writer, wish for a love like he shares, and wipe
away the pain that he has felt. WHO WILLCRY FOR THE LITTLE BOY is a satisfying
collection of poetry that will stir up a bevy of emotions in readers and sate
them at the same time.

How refreshing it is to read poetry that does not come from an angry or political place. Mr. Fisher imagined a beautiful world for himself filled with love and beauty. I am so happy that Mr. Fisher restored my faith in the belief that art imitates life. Through his poetry I understand there is hope for us all.

This is very nice book of poems that is spoken from the heart. Antwone Fisher is going to make such a mark on this world. I feel like we have yet to see the greatness of this man.

i thought this book was extremely touching and those of you who say he hasn't had any experience in poetry, well what do you expect? If you saw the movie you would know what I am talking about. His style of using simple words adds to the beauty and story behind his poems. Who said poetry has to be confusing?

I truely believe that a poet should write from the heart.
After reading these poems, I was captivated. It took the
author courage to express his deepest emotions and desires
and I admire Antwone's spirit. I am truely happy that Antwone
has now found peace and success in his life.

It is so wonderful that Antwone has included that beautiful title poem from the powerful movie Antwone Fisher in this collection. The poem Azure Indigo dances with delight as we understand that this man could have turned out not so tender, but he refused to have the sweetness crushed out of him. I applaud this poet, this man.

This small book of words has helped me see how much hurt
you had in you. I look back on our time together and I now
see why. Congradulations on everything you have accomplished.
With Love,
