A Message from the Poetic Messenger is a Book of poetry, spoken word and songs glorifying God, and encouraging others. It's about transformation, forgiveness, making discrimination known, and poetic justice with a universal message that "We are All In One and One In all." People going through workplace discrimination and other types of discrimination, I know how you feel I should be absent from the body, and present with Lord from all the abuse I endured and continue to bear at the hands of a few of my past employers. But, I'm not dead, I'm alive and probably more so than ever before. You can get through all of the pain without harming others or yourself. I made it through, not with family, nor with friends. I trusted God and while I waited for God to move on my behalf; God kept me. He gave me strength, courage, wisdom and peace, as He revealed my gifts and talents. I didn't know I could write like this, until one cold dark gloomy rainy evening while sitting in the lunchroom at work, isolated from my co-workers, feeling lonely and helpless, "I asked God, what am I going to do?" "A voice said, write a song." "I repeated back to God, write a song " "A voice said, don't discriminate." I got a pen and paper and that night I was inspired to write "No Skin."Brenda S.
