Troy's Story

Troy R. Legette hails from Trenton, NJ, a city that shaped his early years. Now a resident of Florida, he carries a deep gratitude for the advantages his parents bestowed upon him. Troy’s journey was buoyed by a strong network of family and friends, their unwavering support fueling his ambition and drive.

Each poem he wrote held a reason for being. His first poems emerged after reading about a poetry contest in the newspaper during a difficult time. He entered the contest and continued writing from then on. This eventually led to the 2015 publication of his poetry book, “Social Climax,” through Xlibris.

His hope is that these poems will spark positive change, reflection, and a sense of freedom and peace within his readers. His writing style is a courageous blend of various poetic forms, fueled by his very own personal experiences and observations.
