Ducks on a Pond; Poetry from the Soul of a Black Woman takes us on a journey through the eyes and hearts of black women.  A journey that pulls at the roots of our being, our culture, and our “nevergiveuptudeness.”  Using poetry to create the narrative, the author divides the story into four categories: Soul, Healed, Loved, and Repaired.  The author focuses on prose that signifies pain, redemption, fear, heartbreak, and love.  You’re guaranteed to laugh, cry, and, more importantly, see yourself in the stories that take you on a journey to a position of healing.

Black & White Portrait of an Attractive

Resiliency is scaling mountains larger than your fears and removing obstacles. Resiliency is staying in the fight, unfettered when others have waved the white flag. Use courage to find your resilience.
