Derick Gibbs is an artist first, but everyone has a story. And even when the first thing you couldn't help but notice is a battle worn quadriplegic, affected with paralysis of both arms and both legs... you would hardly realize it reading his poetry or prose. He stands by the notion that "real-life at a minimum is beautifully tragic, and even more so in ink, superimposed over the heart of a poem." What is struggle to the unwilling? A word. What are quit, give in, give up or tap out if you won't have any part of their movement? Just words. Derick is passionate, explicit and fearless in his writing. "I'm working against gravity. But I will not lose"
