Born of personal experience this anthology is representative of a heartfelt poetry collection by Anglo Asian born author Dawn Beasley.
The collection is the fruit of trauma and her extremely difficult experiences including being a cancer sufferer who lost her ability to paint because of it. The poems are pregnant with desperation and hope, faith and doubts, fear and ultimate courage that has helped Dawn in overcoming each new challenge. It is through faith and help from supporting family and friends that Dawn has managed to focus on her writing abilities giving birth to a profound, touching selection of poems reflecting her personal state of mind and her physical struggle for survival. Ultimately Healing Words is a compendium of cathartic proportions leading to a sense of liberation and resulting in a generous transmission of grief and positive and optimistic vibrations for the reader to thoroughly enjoy and suffer at the same time.
Dawn Beasley was born into an Anglo Asian family in 1952. She grew up in North London amongst a fair deal of colour prejudice. She soon found she had a natural flair for languages which became apparent in her later years at school and has now come to the fore.
Her Christian faith, love of people, adoption of two daughters and care for their well-being through serious personal traumas over the years brought her to a place of using her gifting in writing to release emotion and enable others to do the same.
Dawn’s once fine art skills disappeared after her battle with major oesophageal cancer in 2013. What she found she could not do with a paintbrush anymore seemed to accelerate her ability to write and she has been encouraged by numerous people to publish what now has become Healing Words her heartfelt and touching poetry collection.
