Every poet I have had the pleasure of interviewing up until this point has been nothing short of inspiring, and so are you C. Melita! We’ve chatted quite a bit leading up to this interview, and your story, courage, and perseverance have really touched my heart. So, this book is part of a four-part poetry series. What inspired the creation of this series, and more specifically, book three?
I kept hearing how a lot of people were giving up on life. Children who were bullied and a lot of pain in our society. Then the schoolgirls in South Africa were returned. I remember one picture where they were home, but their spirits seemed to be crushed. I knew they had shame in their hearts and felt cultural embarrassment for being violated, stolen and abused. I started writing a few poems, and thoughts. Then, as I put the book together, I felt led to the title. I wanted everyone with hurt, pain, depression, and anxiety to know they are important, wanted and needed by society. More importantly, they were created with a glorious purpose that has yet to be fulfilled. So my book celebrates the struggle to realize who we are in God and so much more of our life’s journey.
Wow, that is immensely beautiful and beyond touching! When and how did poetry first become your calling?
A book by Maya Angelou was loaned to me by a librarian or teacher in elementary school. Her story hooked me and her poetry taught me to dream. As I lost more of my vision, her words led me back to my love of writing and helped me remember we all struggle and to keep going.
I wanted everyone with hurt, pain, depression, and anxiety to know they are important, wanted and needed by society.
Maya Angelou is a huge inspiration to us all, that’s for sure. Why do you write?
I often write as I fight pain and breathing issues. It helps me find focus and think. Sometimes it helps me fight the pain too. So I write everything positive I can think of and save it. Then I listen to it when I’m in pain, struggling to breathe or just in need of a smile.
Your resilience is amazing. I’m glad poetry has a way of picking you up, even during such difficult times. Who is your biggest influence?
My father. He requested I publish some of the writing I had shared with him. So the first book was written for my father. Then the reviews were spectacular, so we put it in a print and e-book. I had so much written that it couldn’t fit into just one book. I saw an opportunity to help others facing life’s challenges and so I released three more books each with a specific purpose.
That’s wonderful! What central message does each book in the series convey?
Book One is like a welcome to my thoughts and enjoy your life.
Book Two is celebrating life and God’s love for His children.
Book Three is understanding why we are here and motivation for life’s journey.
Book Four is understanding what we mean to our Heavenly Father. Thus the title “Built for God’s Glory.”
Excellent! You have mentioned your struggles with your vision and breathing. Can you tell me and community a little bit more about that challenge, if it’s alright with you?
I fight with CRPS which affects my eyes. I also fight with severe asthma, so I do my best to keep my mind busy and find ways to relax through writing. Since my eyesight is blurry, I use voice to text to dictate my thoughts and tape a lot of my writings. I have a great team of three editors and a lot of family support.
You, my friend, are proof that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. I’m so glad you continue to write no matter what! Keep on doing what you’re doing. Many blessings to you! 🙂 💖
