Overview

While facing the challenges of life struggles, addictions from within, generational curses and trying to keep peace of mind, I found healing through writing. Words of comfort, hope, encouragement and strength come from my heart to yours. I have taken no formal lessons in the art of poetry. While searching for answers to life's struggles the Lord inspired me to write. This became an outlet and therapy for me and also a testimony to share with others. I am learning it is not about me, but Him (God). I know He will get the glory as I share our story.

This book of poetry is a good read. The author expresses herself from the heart in such a way that you can identify with her. If you didn't know better, you'd think she was seeing the reader's heart. It is great to know that someone's been where you've been and has come through it. Her writings give the reader hope.

Healing Through Poetry by Mary Ann Duhart, is an excellent book of poetic verses to read and enjoy. Beginning with the enlightening words of Psalm107:20, which states: ¿He sent His word and healed them and delivered them from their destruction,¿ Duhart dynamic style of poetic elaboration through the use of symbolic language truly is a voice for sending out the word to touch the hearts and souls of many.

Her mixture of free form and acrostic style of poetic structures is an excellent medium of enlightening readers with her uplifting words. For example, the poem ¿Can You Stop,¿ is certainly an expressive combination of stanzas written in quatrain format and mixed with a positive theme of helping others. Stopping for a minute and rendering assistance to one in need of help is definitely a task for all ¿Good Samaritans.¿ Her expressions show the quality of her life and the goodness of her heart in this poem.

The poem, ¿A Mother¿s Cry,¿ is an indication of the tears she has shed for her family members and friends. Once she has a family bond with a person, her prayers are always there, and her tears are a part of that process to strengthen the bond, especially for her children. ¿A Mother¿s Cry¿ is for all mothers to read, and fathers too because it impacts the entire family. This piece is linked with another of her poems, ¿Where Is the Man?¿ Certainly, the man plays a vital and critical role in the family, especially when it comes to setting the example and mentoring children for advancement. Actually, in today¿s society, too many are missing from the home.

This book is packed with words of wisdom and understanding for all to enjoy. Naturally, the theme is spiritual in nature, and crosses the spectrum of religious literature based on her faith. The words are pleasing to the soul and instill hope in the reader for a better day which is yet to come. Certainly, this is a must read, especially for those with questionable faith. The lessons from this book of poetry is invigorating and will pick the souls up from the dust, allows one to shake of the remnants, and move forward in faith towards a greater calling.

The reviewer, Joseph S. Spence, Sr., is a poet and author of various books and articles, is most recent is Trilogy Moments for the Mind, Body and Soul.
