Biography of Eddie Henderson
Where do I begin? Welcome to the world of Headliner...The opening act. I write to tell stories that connect us to each other. In my opinion, there is no better time to hear some poetry.
What will you find when you read my work? The three H's. Humor, History, and Humility. Humor because a smile is universal, History because you can't know where you're going unless you know where you've been and finally Humility. I look forward to sharing my work and getting feedback. Hit me up anytime!

Eddie Henderson Poems
The Golden Rule
Inspired by Shel Silverstein The golden rule says Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
It’s spring time The sky is playfully blue like it came out of a coloring book Accented with cookie cutter clouds, in animal cracker shapes Birds chirping, honey suckles in bloom, sun stretching its rays, and the grass is crisp and green
Dedicated to the Family of Ryan Moats (Google Him) Is it just me? Or can racism be affiliated with a global game of Where’s Waldo?
I Wanna Hold You
For My Mother The doctors told you I had a hole in my heart Your little boy was getting off to a rough start
The way Jesus’ birth was synonymous with a manger My birth was synonymous with a blanket Oh yeah, it was that serious After I was released from the cold grasp of the doctors hands that pulled me into this world
Breaking Down Your Pedestal
I woke up this morning with a pix axe and a few sticks of dynamite in my hands Today is the day I break down the pedestal I’ve crafted so carefully for you all of these years Similar to a modern day Taj Mahal, this marvel I erected in my mind was seemingly indestructible
Ask, Believe, Receive
Ask, Believe, Receive That’s been my mantra since the secret was exposed to my psyche The three step process Oprah assures will bless me with whatever I want or need Let’s see…
Bridging The Gap
There’s a lot of debate over the content of popular music these days How the radio waves are polluted and similar products are distributed Without thought or effort, the idiot box is fed with images of false lives to be beamed inside our heads I’m not here to disagree with all of that
I went on a fishing trip today Accompanied only by the rising sun who had just pulled back the covers of the horizon The intended catch of the day…? Young minds
We had an agreement… Our warriors would engage in combat with neighboring tribes to capture slaves for this new popular trade We’ve been at odds for ages, so it was nothing to complete this task
I’m not the type of guy who likes to cheat But let me tell you about the time I decided to creep It’s my junior year in college and I’m lying in bed wide awake 4am and my ears have had just about as much as I can take
The next gift you receive after the first breath of life that expands your lungs…is your name Unless you change it via the legal system or adopt a symbol to capitalize on your fame… it remains Hearing your name can evoke an array of emotions
Dedicated to all the steroid talk in sports... Ladies and Gentlemen, before we begin this press conference, I'd like to get a few things off of my conscience.
My White Christmas
“I’m dreaming of a White Christmas. Just like the ones I used to know” Funny how quickly dreams can turn into reality It was hard for me to fathom a Christmas away from home but, that time had come
Dedicated to all the steroid talk in sports...
Ladies and Gentlemen, before we begin this press conference,
I'd like to get a few things off of my conscience.
Please understand this is a hard time for me and my family.
Respect our privacy
This is in no way easy for me…
Im here today to set the record straight
