My World, My Words: Confessions of a Cluttered Mind is the first collection of poetry released by Jacob Grovey in 2009. Heartache, lack of faith, anger, sadness, fear, self-esteem issues, and suicidal thoughts are all dealt with as Jacob faces them head-on to show that none of us are alone in our feelings.
The world of poetry can be quite pretentious. Many times, we will read prose from writers who would like us to believe they are not flawed. They talk to us about subjects as if they've mastered them all. Often, it actually seems some poets condescendingly "talk at" their audience instead of "talking to" us. "The Book of Jacob" does not fit that mold. This collection is a journey similar to what many of us have experienced in our lives. Sadness is in an emotionally epic game of tug of war with happiness. Just when we think we've found love, we discover we've found heartache. When we reach points of being ready to give up, a higher power tells us why we shouldn't. We are all perfectly imperfect and accepting that is what "The Book of Jacob" is all about.

Passionately written by Jacob Grovey, 'Dance of the Broken' tells the poignant and inspirational story of a young black girl who dreams of being a ballerina, despite society's opinion that she's cut from the wrong cloth. Elise's story is a microcosm of the adversity and negative messages that plague the minds of millions of young girls; leaving them with the belief that their dreams are out of reach. But as Grovey proves through his narrative, every young woman is a powerhouse of potential, beauty, and success.

To some, the world is a place where people are friendly and value the company of others. Others seem to live in a racist section of the world that time seems to have forgotten. My opinion of reality lies somewhere in the middle. It is because of this, my mind became cluttered. It became a place where thoughts of love and optimism were constantly battling hatred and pessimism. This particular collection of poetry is an inside look at that battle. It is a journey through my life, experiences, and my viewpoints of the world. It is written as if each poem is a conversation with the reader, which gives everyone a sense of comfort and it allows the words to be genuine. The poems were therapy during my time of need, and I hope they are meaningful to all who read them.

When it comes to tales of violence, there's normally the story of the person who allegedly committed the crime and the story of the victim. Perspectives of Violence adds another storyteller; the gun. How do crimes look from the perspective of an object that doesn't care about anyone involved? How do we, as a society, look when we simply change the perspective of who is telling the story?
Sometimes we all need a reminder that the words and energy we put out into the atmosphere will find their way back to us. This book serves as a reminder.
