Secrets of My Soul is based on a variety of different topics and themes. From love and faith to the Columbine shootings, Ms. Faison's work comes forth as honest, uplifting, sincere, and real. From beginning to end readers will relate to the poetry in this series and by the time the last poem is read you will leave with a positive, peaceful feeling.
While there are so many poets attempting to convey their message, Latorial Faison truly shows us her genuine heart and compassion through Secrets of My Soul. She allows readers to connect in ways in which poets cannot. Of all the poetry that I have read, Secrets of My Soul is indeed the best that I have read in a long time. Take a bow, Ms. Faison, you are truly in the ranks of Langston and Maya.

"Dare me to pursue this, to pen the secrets of my soul in Father Time's precious ink, royal black and memory gold. I do it cry the truest tear, for a writing heart never bleeds fear." I hope that you will be intrigued by what I do with words in Secrets of My Soul. I love alliteration and rhyme, but most importantly, I live to give meaning in each poem that I write. There's something in this book for everyone: man, woman, boy, girl. There's something for us all. There's a lesson. There's a lyric. There's life. Enjoy it!
Her first poetry book (Poetically Speaking to the Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul)
left me speechless with its flow and rhythms, and I had hoped that Faison would
deliver the same powerful words to me again. I was NOT disappointed.
Faison once again opens up her heart and soul to reveal her thoughts on her
identity, love, love lost, spirituality, black men, and the joys and pains of
the world to which we live in.
Some of my particular favorite poems were the title poem, Secrets of My Soul,
Fast Girls, And He Kills A Dream, To One Million Black Men, A Woman in Today's
World, Rev. Dr. Do Right, and Wake Up!
In poetry, the "word" is so very important. Every word has to be just right in
order to resonate a poem's powerful meanings. In Latorial Faison's case, she has
a Ph.D. in the WORD, and everyone should embrace their meanings. This is a definite
must read for poetry lovers and just word lovers.

When I began reading the collection, I expected to finish in one sitting. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I was limiting myself to 3-5 poems per night. Once submerged in the chambers of her heart, I clearly needed the extra time to bathe in her simple wisdoms and ponder each lesson shared.
As a fellow writer, I extend my deepest gratitude and admiration to Ms. Faison for unlocking the door to her soul and permitting entrance to those who dare to steal a peek.
Her work, in retrospect, is no less than heavenly!

Ms. Latorial Faison's, Secrets of My Soul, collection of poetry is uplifting - And a delightful ray of work. Intelligently written, Latorial explores various issues and plights regarding self, family, and the world describing them in words filled with spirituality, empowerment, love and joy.
I especially enjoyed the positive energy that I personally felt as I read each one of her poems. I look forward to reading more poetry by Ms. Faison's in the near future.
Her poetry is a wonderful 'Fruit of Thoughts'.
