The Chains are Unbroken

About The Chains are Unbroken: I was in the shower when I first noticed. I thought I had a rash from shaving, so I decided to stop shaving. A few days passed, and my shaving rash was affecting my sleep, waking me up in the middle of the night. It was then that I called my mother, who instructed me to drive to the emergency room. As soon as I pulled my pants down and showed the nurse, she asked me, "Have you had unprotected sex?" That eerie question brought so many memories of moments where my lack of self-control prevented me from saying no to sex even though I had no protection. The doctors tested me for every STD there is and sent me home. I went home remorseful, afraid, and alone. I stayed up through the night praying that I had not caught anything. I was in denial. I told myself this doesn't happen to people like me, there's no way. I had sex with six girls in two months, how could I be so foolish?
This is the true story of a young man who made some horrible mistakes, but God being an all-powerful God was able to deliver him from his tragedy and open his eyes to the beauty of the rainbow after the storm.
In The Chains Are Broken, Quincy Leca presents uniquely rhythmic poems, songs, and short stories that reflect his thoughts and experiences as a young black man of God living in twenty-first-century America.
