About the Book

Falling in love and being disappointed; growing up and then growing old; and acknowledging God as we mature in faith – these are the experiences that shape our lives. Amelia’s poetry helps us remember the things we love, the culture we grew up in, the women and men in our lives that we cherish; the journey of living and the lessons we have learned along the way. Her soulful writing gives voice to the emotions that we experience deep inside, but would rarely speak out loud. She says things we want to say, if only someone would ask us. This collection of poems and short vignettes is about real life; before and after God’s redemptive work. Her words tell of a familiar story line in the lives of the women we all know or have known. At times, it is our own story. This is not your English teacher’s poetry. This work is intense… emotional…. inspiring and truthfully relevant! Disguised in metaphoric prose, Amelia gives us wisdom in practical doses. Candid, revealing and thought provoking, her writing style will beckon you. Like looking in a mirror you may find your own reflection looking back at you with its familiar images and memories. It challenges each of us to stop and think about the actions we engage in and the consequence of our decisions. If you can appreciate mature poetry that acknowledges that into every life some rain must fall, but reassures us that God’s light will always shine through, then you will enjoy Timeless Truth.

I am fascinated by our individual journeys to womanhood. Whenever I was moved by someone’s story, it usually ended up in a poem. But there are also pieces in this book that reflect my faith walk and personal experiences,” said Amelia Hamilton Morris.
