Hello, I’m Dina Ray, a Caucasian American.Alicia Keys, whose ethnic background consist of Italian,Scottish, Irish and African American, wrote a poem thatsums up those times in life where things seem to stand still.Although, we have had completely different life experiencesand do not share a similar ethnic background, we haveshared a similar state of mind. The poem is called “ConstantEvolution of Going Nowhere”.

My cultural backgroundis Italian and Irish, so during my search to find a poet whoseethnicity differs from my own, I was met with a vast array ofoptions to choose from. Have you ever felt like you were led tofind something by a Higher Power? While researching poetry forour assignment, I stumbled across a biographical excerpt for FayeDiane Kilday who explains herself to be an angel-inspired poet.Instantly intrigued by the self-imposed title, I was eager to readthe work of this imaginative New Zealander. Although individualfaiths may differ, I believe their inspirational messages arecapable of transcending all religious and cultural barriers. I foundher insightful words to be both refreshing and comforting. I havechosen a heartwarming poem entitled Do You Hear the AngelSpeaking to share with you all today. I hope you enjoy it.
