God’s Grace Gives Me Hope to Face Sight Loss

My goal is to see as much of the world as possible before my sight grows completely dim. I am grateful for every day of vision, but even if I lose my sight entirely, I will continue to travel and explore the world in other ways. I know that people who are blind can love travel just as much as sighted people! I do not need to fear the loss of my vision because, "We walk by faith and not by sight."

If you’ve known me for long enough then you know that I absolutely adore reading poetry. It is one of my favourite genres to write and to read, I adore how it makes you feel and how powerful those words on a page can actually be.

Rebecca Holland’s Through My Good Eye is just that – it grabs you and forces you into its orbit. Although quite a short collection, the poems that are within the small chapbook are wonderful. Holland writes with more of a traditional poetic melody that reminds me of poets such as Emily Dickenson and Wilfred Owen. Holland’s writing is quite intricate in nature but is done so in a way that the reader can easily feel and understand the purpose of each poem, the emotional nature of it and that is where Holland’s real talent lay. Before I go any further, I’ll provide you with the synopsis available…
