I Thank you all ever so sincerely  as I realise I would be nothing without YOU as we are all connected as ONE! <3

The Birth of my Donna Africa Poetry Book:
My passion has always been writing poetry and have been writing poetry since the age of ten as being then, a very sensitive, shy & retiring type - I found solace and a way to deal with all my emotions, I was feeling, sensing & experiencing in a very surpressed & repressed world at that time -  when my English Teacher who "Inspired me" to write poetry, after publishing my very First Poem entitled, "Life" in the School magazine and I appreciatively thank him!

I call myself a "Modern Day" "New World" Poet and Performance Poet as I write from my heart and not from a set format, in the hope to connect, share, inspire, heal and become "One" with people from all walks of life and am not here to compete with the Greats!

It has been a long time coming and am very proud to share with you the birth of my very first Donna Africa Poetry Book, "The Queen of dreams" finally "realised" and "published" and available in my shop here on my website, Amazon Kindle and selected upmarket bookshops nationwide. Just like a proud and grateful African Mama am I. P.S I have recently launched my second  poetry book "Queen of dreams" Part 2

People who have inspired me are: my English Teacher in Zimbabwe, Sixto Rodriguez (Cold Fact Fame) Nelson Mandela, Churchill, Romantic Great Late Poet John Keats, Bob Dylan and the Great Brave Zulu Chieftain & King, Shaka Zulu.

Lastly, but more importantly, I believe & advocate, "that you are never too old & that it is never too late" to realise and conquer YOUR Dreams. Hopefully I inspire YOU as I realise that I certainly would be nothing without you, as we are all connected as "One" and I thank you sincerely from my humble heart!

Lastly but more importantly, I share with you my personal inspirational message, "To succeed, self belief is the key, to set you free and make your dreams a reality!"

Here to inspire, heal and to be hired!

With Luv, Light & Liberty,
Donna Africa xoxo
