London-Based Singer-Songwriter Releases Debut Collection of Poetry
Many of Donald's poems are inspired by her own painful life experiences and triumphant successes. Raised a ward of the local authority in the U.K., Donald grew up facing bullies, loneliness, depression and loss, ultimately turning to music and writing as a creative outlet amid dire circumstances. After the death of her mother, Donald began to pursue songwriting more passionately and released her debut album, "How Could You," under the moniker D'Casio in March 2017.
"This book is meant to be a place to unwind, be intense, be in love or out of love, be thoughtful, even cry," Donald said. "My hope is that, through my words, I can provide readers with a meaningful space and time to explore hope, love, sadness, joy, empowerment and spirituality. This collection of poetry pulls at strings and thoughts, unblocks the blocked and captures the goodness that can come through pain."
Through fluid, musical verses, "It's Your Time" will take readers on an energizing journey through life's spiritual ups and downs, feed their souls and guide them to a place of love, growth and self-acceptance.
