by Terrance Jackson
Women are the subject of Terrance Jackson’s Words from the Heart: For Those People Who Know What They Want to Say but Can’t Express It in Words—women as lovers, wives, seductresses, angels, mothers, sinners, and "Fire." Jackson’s love/hate relationship with the female of the species is evident in his collected works. In one poem, he praises her for her beauty and femininity—in another, he condemns her to the eternal flame. As a result, a brilliant moral dichotomy emerges wherein not only the women who are the subject of these poems are being judged, but also the mean they encounter.

He is also a member of the Evening of Prayer Church of God in Christ. His interests include singing, playing the drums, reading, and bodybuilding.
