About this product
- DescriptionPoetry by a woman who has lived through more hell on earth than most people can imagine, and yet has emerged from horrible darkness into a better space. Although she still deals with dyslexia and dissociative identity disorder, the poet uses her poetry and a sense of humour to cope. She journeyed from S. Africa to England. Her poetry, which chronicles years of daily trials, inspires hope for those with the most difficult challenges life can throw at us.
- Author BiographyThe author lived most of her life in S. Aftrica. She now lives in England with her beloved furkids. Although she went through more trials in the first half of her life than most people can even dream of, Ms. Robinson continues to use poetry as way to cope. While her poetry is not the warm and fuzzy stuff people might like it to be, she is able to use this medium for self-expression, including expressing love of the lesbian variety. On the cover of her second published poetry collection, Chaos, Jin writes, I am a person rich in experience and emotions that take me deeply into life and the lives of those I love. I love music and nature and fun! I am a multi-dimensional MC Escher painting -a bit quirky -a bit of a flirt -a bit of trouble -and a bit topsy turvy -but mostly I am human with a need to share my faults and flaws and qualities and strengths and my visions with others who are trying to be human too. Although Jin's poetry is not always easy to read from an emotional standpoint, it is always life-changing. Jin opens the reader's eyes to another world. One that isn't as rosy as we might like it to be, but one that is true to what she has experienced. Despite being dyslexic, she writes her truth as a woman with Dissociative Identity Disorder. Her publishing credits include two collections of poetry: Broken, published in 2008 and Chaos, published in 2010.
