A PATHWAY THROUGH SURVIVAL
March 14, 2021
From distinguished spoken word poet Margaret Daramola, comes a collection of poems that will walk you through the process of healing. You will see the ashes that come from despair, but you will also witness the healing that comes your way in due time. This is a prophetic book for those drowning in a pit of sorrow, a triumph medal for those who have already overcome. In this book of poetry, you will taste the depression, the heartbreak, the feeling of loss and hopelessness. Yet you will also taste the survival, you will see the emotional and spiritual healing. You will sense it as the author walks you through her journey of finding it. Written in the most eloquent prose, A Pathway Through Survival sings a victorious hymn unto God.
The emotions captured in this collection are timeless as you come to these realizations, lose them, and learn them over and over again. The growth depicted in this book requires effort. It requires thoughtfulness, reflection, prayer, endurance and that’s what makes this collection so beautiful - the rawness of it all.

This reminds me of how Handel wrote Operas before writing The Messiah, his most beautiful work. Your collection is a beautiful song of praise to God, making use of your true talent as a poet. That is a beautiful blessing in and of itself.

My understanding of the collection as a whole is that life is a process, a journey, and sometimes a cycle and there is both beauty and pain found along the way. This collection makes it clear that whether you embrace the beauty or drown in the pain is completely up to you. The collection emphasizes healing and growing physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
