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.

    It is not an uncommon experience that we get bogged down with challenging situations in life, something we would rather not go through if we ever had a choice. Nevertheless, tragic and traumatic things do come up and facing them is reality that often leaves many in such a deplorable state of helplessness. Dawn shares her lived experience of rather than bowing down to the weight of the pain, anxiety and depression, we can look beyond our vulnerability and bow down before the supreme God who loves us so much. God Almighty sticks closer and feels what we feel and promises to walk with us on the road of recovery, giving us hope that He is able to carry us through it all.
    “Healing Words”, speaks to the core of my life and I have been encouraged, comforted to know that I am not alone through the tough times I have encountered in my life and that even when light seems so dim we can still see the light of God’s Love glowing through it all when we choose to let Him into the situations. I highly recommend this book to everyone at their highest point and in particular lowest point in life and for those caring for people in vulnerable situations, as a wonderful and befitting resource to help you cope.
    The book is easy to read and we can relate to the situations, she describes in the pages.
