The Torch of Hope and Inspirations: A personal collection of poems and inspirational quotes is a work of empowering and strengthening poetry penned by author Annalyn J. Rasul. The work is separated into two distinct sections, both of which offer messages of inspiration for the reader. In the first section, the author expresses a very personal selection of poetic verses that relate to her life. They cover happier themes such as love and hope for the future, but also difficult emotive issues such as infertility and betrayal. Following this, we find a collection of quotes that the author has sourced and collated, which are intended to complement the poetic journey and also to inspire readers in the same way that they have inspired the author herself.
Author Annalyn J. Rasul has crafted a highly empowering work that is certain to live up to its title for all who read it. With hope and inspiration as its guiding goals, it is a work with which readers will be able to deeply connect, thanks to the openness and raw quality of the author’s own writing. Poetry can be a cathartic experience for both writers and readers, placing emotions into a new format that is often easier to process, and I feel that readers who have had similar experiences to the author will be able to do so with this volume. The poetry itself is well penned, with excellent lexical choices and vivid imagery which stirs up emotion, and the mood perfectly complements the quote section at the end of the work. Overall, I would highly recommend The Torch Of Hope And Inspirations as a read which enthusiasts will be able to pick up again and again and continue to find solace and inspiration in it.
