About

Adrian Lovebook Carter


Adrian's motivational speeches infuse spoken word poetry as a creative approach to reinforce his message. The poetry becomes powertry as his words tackle the world system of politics, religion, education, marriage, socialization, and personal issues encountered by individuals on their life journey.

 

Adrian “Lovebook” Carter has published two books of poetry with accompanying spoken word albums. Dubbed “Lovebook” after the name of his books, poetry found Adrian in the third grade as a way to communicate his feelings when frustrated. He penned his first poem titled “Teachers, teachers are the meanest creatures” after being told by his teacher to sit and be quiet. Adrian spoke through his pen.

 

Noted for his creative writing skills, by fifth grade Adrian tested into the Gifted Magnet Program for Miami-Dade Public Schools. As Adrian matriculated to middle-school, he competed in the Dade County Youth Fair Poetry Expo, published a poem in an anthology book of poetry, and competed in the Miami Dade College Theodore Gibson Oratorical Project, in which he placed third in the finals for two consecutive years in the categories of original work and dramatic monologue.

"Adrian offers poetry that starts in the spirit & manifests itself onto sheets of paper."

- Eccentrich, Author & Poet

Lovebook is a rich collection of poems that capture the essence of love and spirituality. In parabolic ways it tackles the world system of politics, religion, education, marriage, socialization, and challenges encountered by individuals on their life journey.

 

Recognizing these conflicts in the world system, Lovebook presents a formula to reconcile, restore, and sustain individuals from the worldly notions of love that besets them from fulfilling perfection. Overall, Lovebook is very positive, encouraging and imploring collection of poems that introspectively looks at love in ways that it may not have been looked at before. Each poem must be revealed as they contain deeper meanings than what meets the eye. Lovebook contains several poetic formats including cinquains, haikus, free form, and sonnets.

Lovebook II is a rich collection of poems that unveils the essence of love and spirituality by providing an introspective guide to building interpersonal relationships.  Lovebook II also shares how to avoid the all too familiar emotional roller coaster of falling in and out of (what some individuals call) love and adopting a renovatus mindset to being a spouse, parent, or friend.

 

Lovebook II recognizes “it’s not the problem that counts – it’s the solution.” Subsequently, the poems must be revealed as they call for a revolution that will not be tweeted.  The Revolution Will be a renewing of the mind that fosters inclusion, multicultural appreciation, mentorship, conflict resolution, and the building of sustainable relationships founded on respect, trust, and honor – the tenants of The Ellison Model.

 

Lovebook II contains several poetic formats including haikus, free form, sonnets, and six-word stories.

When in love the sensual touch between lovers evokes a depth of emotion and connection that can only be perfectly aligned between spirit, soul, and body. Song of Adrian swoons into these feelings of Eros love through poetry, showing the appreciation and tenderness between lovers. The word play is foreplay that deeply caresses the heart into deeper depths and higher heights in that sacred space shared between perfect lovers, flowing with passion, romance, and eroticism.

Welcome to Lovebook III.

It's Not

The Problem

             That

Counts

Problems don’t count

They’re not mathematically inclined

Problems can’t composite

They’re too busy being prime

-marily the focus

Hoping you’ll cosine

Going off on tangents

Through vectors of conflict lines

 

Problems have a standard deviation

From resolving situations

Problems carry combinations

With inaccurate approximations

Like misery loves company

Tries to form triangulations

Problems don’t count

They’re trapezoids of dilation

 

Problems don’t see how I've grown

It thinks I'm weak but I am strong

I know where Problems went wrong

For even shorthand division is long

Standing firm in your perfection

How you hate rejection
Not seeing your regression

Where problems rule, I’m the exception.

 

Solution is a numberer

It calculates concise

Solution understands the commutative property

Of multiplication in human life

Knowing there’s a plane

To sum the difference of contention

Methods to alleviate poverty

Is its exponential function

Solution has the transitive property

Of building inclusion properly

Solution negates the animosity

And compounds the possibility

To rightfully divide

And increase the probability

Solution loves to count

You into every opportunity

 

We have come to this conclusion

The answer is not exclusion

The solution is inclusion

Not evolution; it's revolution.
