by Bosede Funke Ademilua Afolayan

In these fascinating and compelling poetic lines, the Author holds a dialogue with several entities, and especially, with God. We encounter a deeply personal voice that speaks for all times of pain and hurt. In spite of the poignant voice of the persona, there is a hope, a courage, a determination and confidence to survive drawn from God who is the source and giver of life.
