Poetry should remind the reader that words are magic, and that this magic can take us on a memorable voyage through the world of emotions. Such is the case with the poetry of Rosalie Cooper. In "A Rose In Bloom", this talented poet--a victim of MST ( Military Sexual Trauma) and domestic violence who pulled herself from the quagmire of being a victim--reveals the very inner strength that moved her life forward. In this moving poetry, Cooper reveals the determination and hope that shifted her from thoughts of suicide to a path toward survival and a promising life.
Included in "A Rose In Bloom" are poems of pain and joy, as well as an honest look into the angst and awareness of one woman's journey toward emotional health. The poetry is both dark and light, ominous and hopeful, each phrase reflecting one woman's wish to live a life of health and freedom, and expressed in a compelling and sensitive style.
Readers who are following their own quests toward well-being and joy will find these poems supportive, meaningful and life-giving.

About the Author
I started writing again in March 1996, when my son was twelve years old, and had some mental health issues, and was abusive toward me(due to his father's suicide seven years earlier). I needed a way to release all the tension, fear and frustration I was going through. That is when I self published my first book entitled "Journey into Awareness, a Parent's perspective on Childrens mental health in todays society". I continued to write off and on over the years, got my son the help he needed,it wasn't enough, the abuse by my son continued over the next four years. After my discharge from the Navy, I went back to school over a period of thirteen years, and earned an Associates degree in Electronic Technology, A Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering technology,
and an Associates degree in Computer Science. I had a job teaching Electronics. Until one day, I just had it and walked out of the classroom. A couple weeks later I was seriously contemplating suicide. I sought counseling to see why I was feeling that way.
