New Book Release
Join educator and author, Dr. Brooksie B. Sturdivant, in her second book
as she presents her entire collection of original poems.
My Heart Leaks Ink: Poetic Expressions for Restoration and Empowerment
reads as a moving memoir and devotional,
revealing her innermost emotions in her pursuit of womanhood.
She creatively narrates the highs and lows of her lived experiences,
offering a message of hope and healing through a provocative progression of poetry.
My Heart Leaks Ink: Poetic Expressions for Restoration and Empowerment is a testimony to the spirit of truth-telling inside the journey of healing. These poems are declarations of rebirth, repurpose, and reclamation.
Dr. Brooksie Sturdivant writes herself whole unleashing heavy locks that were holding her heart hostage to old wounds. She speaks bravely and boldly without contempt but with unbridled faith, simplicity, and sincerity.
Her poetic narratives remind us that it is necessary to weep with abandonment and to seize hope when hope feels impossible. My Heart Leaks Ink: Poetic Expressions for Restoration and Empowerment is a collection of confessional poetry intended for others who might find shelter inside the power of their stories.
