About the Book

His Gift to Me: Poetic Humanities is a short read, but impacting. It is an awe-inspired collection of tell-all poems about his story, her story, my story, and even, your story in a poetic voice. It is the voice of the inhibited and the proud, the introvert and the extrovert. It is open, honest, and compassionate poetry that soothes as it communicates hurt, heartache, pain, love, joy, peace, and happiness. It’s life in a poetic voice. His Gift to Me: Poetic Humanities strengthens and embraces the reader as it acts as a help aid in moving on and living whole.

Ms. King’s book, His Gift to Me: Poetic Humanities, is inspiring and lifted my soul.

Ms. King’s words of wisdom, encouragement, and experience . . . just as Dr. King, “We shall overcome.”
—Ayonda W., Chicago, Illinois

Ms. King’s His Gift to Me is a raw and emotional journey. This journey through the roller coaster that is life is filled with such realism that anyone can relate to. It is a true testament that if God brought you to it, he will bring you through it.

The poem “Why” touched me because it felt like it related to me, now, that I am overcoming pain and hurt. It was a joy to see the words on paper. Overall, this poetry book was uplifting to my soul; it touched my heart and is full of wisdom.

His Gift to Me is an extraordinary life-lived book of poems. It gets two thumbs up and a “You go girl!” in Jesus’s name.
—Robin Jones, Chicago, Illinois

“Life allowed you the opportunity to live it once more; a chance to rearrange your life or to continue as before.” That’s the part which stood out for me. I have another chance to live again.
—Mary Walker, Chicago, Illinois

The book His Gift to Me is an interesting read. It pulls the reader into its pages and transports them to live, for a short while, within its storyline and message. You don’t have to have any religious beliefs to understand the message that comes across—the message being of hope and of the power of the human mind. I’ve given this book to others to read; they’ve had positive and similar experiences as well. The verbiage is in a certain style, which helps to place the reader in the appropriate mind frame lending to the credibility.
