Book Details

Out of Suffering Emerges Our Strongest Character

Luv Dat Poems is a book of poetry for everyone, with words of encouragement that will help with the rebuilding of spiritual wellness. Whether through laughter or reflection it will bring spiritual upliftment, enlightenment and fulfillment. A world full of insight and light that will bring you to ask yourselves this question, in this world are you a producer or an actor? Our character is usually fueled by our ambitions, and through rejection, separation, and, or deception we learn that we never truly know another human. Working as a nurse I have seen it all. I realize that our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being is just as important as our psychological one. With a little help and emotional as well as spiritual support we can reclaim our vision, which will help us to see where to fly. The question we should ask ourselves is, how high? We all have issues that we are sometimes ashamed of, and through pride, anxiety, or embarrassment we prefer to hide. But in order to ride the treacherous tide of life, we need to choose a compatible boat that gives us hope. One of my favorite quotes is “Peace is found within oneself, in the same place as agitation, suffering, and sorrow. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering.” I choose to write visualizing life experiences through other people’s sight. With my words I hope to rekindle hope…and soften loss. I often lie awake at night when the world is fast asleep and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheeks…so much heartache and suffering is useless, answers to these issues to seek. So instead we should learn to get down on our knees and thank God for the strength and courage that he gave us so that we are able to get through them. If only we could learn to show tenderness to the weak and the wrong this would foster strength and everyone would be encouraged in how to be strong. Despite our suffering, life goes on… luv dat.
