Inside My Head
“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.”
—Booker T. Washington
Inside My Head started as a poetry assignment entitled, “The One Who Left Me” at Mumford High School, in Detroit Michigan—it, along with a collection of her other inspired poetry, has become the first published work of Courtney E. Butts, an up and coming, young, gifted writer and communicator.
The poetry narrates the story of not only her life, but the life of many young African American girls growing up in the inner city and the unique challenges they face—the ups and downs, friendships, spiritual life, relationships and finally finding herself.
Courtney says, “She is not the person she was when she started on the journey of writing Inside My Head.” Join Courtney on her journey and let your life be forever changed.
