V.S.O.P Reserve
Each aged to its desired perfection.
Cheat on your whiskey.
Have an affair with class.
Cognac, that’s my go to stash.
Great substitution in “Old Fashioned”
Though it’s best to enjoy your
“Sidecar 75”
In the comfort of your home with a lit cigar
For the Rich and Famous
Strictly for the wedding party
V.S.O.P Reserve,
Showing off in the clubs
Is where you’ll find me.
Because I sip my drinks,
On a budget

Brian Wayne Smith

Published author that writes free verse, prose, poetry, research and most importantly from the heart. My writing has more of an urban point of view and style. Simply because I am an African American that have seen and experienced things that people of other cultures may never see. Though I'm hoping to share reading material that we all could respect and continue to be open minded about.

I'm a husband, father, business owner of BRAYNE, LLC, a clothing company that promotes positivity by way of fashion, a writer, a student and an electronic engineering test technician. Life is busy but I'm striving to live my dreams with my great family that I love deeply. There are times when I feel like a failure. Then I look at how many times I've fallen just to dust myself off and continue running the race. Now I can look around at my life and see that my "failures" were just locked doors that God wasn't ready to open yet.
