Madison Community Services is pleased and proud to announce that one of our clients is now a published author!
David Constantine or DC for short, has worked hard over the last year to produce a book of poetry titled “When I Was Touched by Love”.
Description of David’s Poetry Book
‘When I Was Touched By Love’ is a book of poems divided into six chapters about love, heartache, pain and the beauty of both life and art. It depicts the rise and fall of a man mentally and emotionally heart broken, yet full of sunshine.
‘When I write I give my mind, soul and my heart to the page…in love with every word on my page. Just the thought of seeing my thoughts on the page, organized on paper and to read it now and read it later is a release for me. To write whenever I get the chance, steady writing deep and intimate on every page! All my feelings, soul and heart, sweat and tears. Writing is my number one thing to do, it’s fun.’
David’s been kind enough to share his experience with Madison Community Services and his journey to become an author.
Hi, I’m David Constantine from Kingston, Jamaica and I have been a client of Madison Community Services since 2012 in the Lansdowne Supportive Housing Program. I have always had a deep love for writing, especially poems and rap songs, which help me to express myself. Madison staff has been very supportive of my writing journey, especially Lindsay and Vincent, with helping me to edit my work. With the support and encouragement of Madison staff I was able to achieve my lifelong dream of becoming a published author. I spent months budgeting and researching online in order to make my dream a reality and am very pleased to announce my book of poems, When I was Touched by Love, has just been published and is now out in print. I would really like to thank Madison Community Services, especially a huge thank you to Lindsay and Valentina, for always believing in me and supporting me, words cannot thank you enough.
Prior to publishing his book, David also wrote a rap song titled “The Madison Special”, which is embedded below.
“When I Was Touched by Love” is now available on Amazon.ca in paperback for $22.96 or Kindle format for $3.92.
