Tim is a 14 year old in a 25 year olds body. His mother left and took his sister never to be heard from again, and his stepmother resents his presence so he had to grow up fast. He has a plan for this summer-detailing cars with his friends and hanging out with the new girl in town. But one day that all comes crashing down. Tired of dealing with all of the crap, he runs away thinking things have to get better. Little does he know things are about to get a whole lot worse.
Timm Knight was born in one of the most creative hubs in America Detroit, Michigan. Almost immediately, he fell in love with the arts. He started out playing piano by ear, then followed up with learning to play the violin in elementary school. His love for creativity naturally drove him to writing and producing songs of his own. During high school, he followed an entrepreneurial path formulating an entertainment company producing talent showcases, seminars and composing original music for singers, rappers and poets. Continuing his creative journey he now adds the title of an author on his list of achievements. Admittedly he never set out to write a fictional book; he was more interested in nonfiction. However, after a conversation with his pastor who asked him if he ever thought about writing a book. He sat down on his laptop and asked himself “Well, what would I write about? “ A year and three months later he debuts the first installment of a three-part series entitled “Gods Will But My Choice”.
This is a description of one the main areas (park) where a lot of action takes place for Tim and his friends.
Gods Will But My Choice
Tim hops onto his white BMX bike with red trim and red spokes that was leaning against the side of the house. The rest of the guys followed on foot toward Clark Lake Park a short distance from Tim's house. Once upon a time Clark Lake Park was the epicenter of this once highly acclaimed part of the city. It was 5 acres of beautiful lush landscaped trees, shrubs, exotic flowers of various assortment. Boasting two gigantic gazebos this easily became the most sought after place to have an outside wedding, birthday party, you name it, and this was the place. Plenty of walking trails, it even had a manmade waterfall that resembled Niagara Falls. Albeit a modest version, of course, but you could tell there was serious thought and consideration that went into the planning of this park. There was a beautiful Olympic size in ground pool and arguably the clearest lake you could find in any city in America. Moreover, this was also home to the Clarksville Love Fest, which was a free 3-day celebration the city would host to say thanks to the city residents. They would have all types of entertainment, carnival rides, musicians, artist, contest, prizes coupled with a wide variety of food to enjoy. The celebration became so popular that people from other cities started coming, with this in mind they began making you show your driver’s license to gain entry. By and large this became an event everyone looked forward to all year round. Furthermore, in the winter they would bring in and give away Christmas trees for the holiday to those who were less fortunate. They would have coat drives, toy giveaways in addition to a soup kitchen that was open the entire month of December! Fast forwarding to the present, the city has struggled financially for last 15 years. Consequently, with budget cuts being made left and right the celebration landed on the non-essential expenditure list. City council said the upkeep of the park was continually going over the budget year after year.
