Reflection

In this inspiring collection of original poetry, NFL wide receiver Tyler Lockett deftly weaves words, thoughts, and images as smoothly as he makes remarkable plays on the field.

Fueled by faith and powered by a strong work ethic, Tyler Lockett's debut book of poetry is a reflective and uplifting journey through topics such as identity, sports, race, relationships, and how to live a purposeful life. As an NFL All-Pro wide receiver and return specialist for the Seattle Seahawks, Lockett draws on his unique perspective as a professional athlete to address life's many challenges, temptations, and rewards. From reminding young people to pursue their dreams, to pleading with a friend not to take his own life, Lockett's poetry encourages readers to stay positive even when confronting impossible odds. In addition to never-before-published poems, Reflection also includes workshop questions, notes, and inspirational messages that give readers an opportunity to reflect on their own lives as well.
