I am honored, blessed and humbled that I have been given this opportunity. My life has taken me on a series of journeys, paths I never thought that I would walk and roads I never should have traveled but in all pain, there is purpose. The Bible says all things work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose-this is my purpose and this is good.
There are many layers to who I am as a person and as an author. All of it is reflected within the pages of my books. I do not make any apologies for writing it the way I feel it, the way I see it, the way I experience it. This is simply my voice!
Keep reading and I'll keep writing.

For Such A Time As This
Hannah L. Drake
For Such a Time as This is a powerful collection of poetry that focuses on social justice and awareness. With poems ranging from police brutality, slanted journalism, homelessness and feminism, just to name a few, Hannah Drake seeks to be a voice for those that have been silenced.
For Such a Time as This was birthed due to injustice, too many lives taken, too many rest in peace shirts, too many mothers weeping, too many communities destroyed, and far too many hashtags. For every individual that has become a hashtag, a face on a t-shirt, a social media topic of debate, Hannah Drake pauses to say that she hears you and this collection of poetry seeks to be the shout for voices silenced too soon, for women that are still fighting for equality, the light that shines awareness on mass incarceration and a multitude of other topics that continue to be a stumbling block to equality to everyone.
We are in this fight together.
Justice for one is not enough.
Justice for all is what is required.
And perhaps you are reading this book today because you have been picked for such a time as this.
