"LEGACY – A New Season"
"JUST A SEASON"
Praise for “JUST A SEASON”“Thank you for your example of tenderness and discipline in what I know is a story of love, delicately shared with readers in a way that says, this life, though brief, is significant. So hold it in highest regard for "the dash" is our legacy to love ones, indeed to the world, which we are blessed to share, albeit, for Just a Season.” Excellent! Sistah Joy, Poet, Cable TV Host “… You feel as if you somehow become an invisible character in the unfolding of this epic narration.” Silver Rae Fox, Actress, Model, Radio Personality “... this is the stuff movies are made of... not since “Roots” have I read anything that so succinctly chronicles an African American story.” Amazing! Cheryl, Avid Reader “Wills pulls you in from the very first page... Just a Season is a heart-wrenching story about growing up and believing in yourself.” Cheryl Hayes, APOOO Book Club “Not since The Color Purple have I read a book that evoked such emotions. John T. Wills possesses the ability to transport the reader directly into the life and struggles of his main characters story. Tonja Covington “JUST A SEASON is laced with thought-provoking commentary on the Vietnam War, the assassinations of the 1960s, the migration of crack cocaine into inner-city neighborhoods, and a myriad of other ills that have rocked America. This is a very good piece intertwined with several history lessons spanning many decades.” Dawn Reeves, RAWSISTAZ Book Club “John T. Wills particulars each notion so eloquently that you feel that you're actually right there with him... this is an inflicting history lesson that I believe all African American males should experience.” JUST A SEASON is a pivotal read. Carmen, OOSA ONLINE BOOK CLUB “From the first page you are transported into John's world as if you are there and are experiencing it with him. I thoroughly enjoyed “Just a Season”. Mia L. Haynes “Just a Season is a work of love, respect and honor... A book filled with the wonder of life, and the pain and growth encountered in living it.” Outstanding!

and the sun has set for me.
I want no rites in a gloom filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free.
Miss me a little, but not for long
and not with your head bowed low.
Remember all the good times we shared.
Miss me but let me go.
For this journey we all must take
and each must go alone. I’ll be alright Dad.
It’s all part of God’s plan and
just a step on the road home.
When you are missing me and your heart is pained.
Go to the friends we know
and bury your sorrows in doing so.
I will be waiting for you.
Miss me but let me go.
