Mel talks to Kia Marlene, a Buffalo poet. She says she enjoys being a poet and writing.
At a time when so much feels out of control, Kia Marlene’s book Evolution of Awareness is an inspiring memoir in poetry that traces Marlene’s own journey of empowerment.
Marlene says it was a dark space; a dark time for her but she is grateful for it now. Kia Marlene, a Buffalo State graduate who studied social work turned to journaling which may on the surface sound simple, but the impact was profound. She said she wrote a lot and it was very therapeutic and she is grateful for that time.
Evolution of Awareness is about a spiritual journey towards enlightenment. It is about accepting transformation and embracing it. It’s about surrendering. She says a lot of time we will be in our own way and we try to fight what we don’t want and sometimes we have to get out of our own way and allow. It’s also about finding your purpose, your passion and loving yourself.
