‘Humanity is Oblivious of Me.’

This was the gift I’d packaged to give y’all on my birthday, last year.

I was in the process of give finishing touches before the accident that almost claimed my limbs.

It was laid aside, the chapbook.

But, a couple months ago, while discussing our book projects, the boy child and other related matters, with Onyemaechi Maxwell Opia-Enwemuche, a collaboration was birthed.

In his words:
“I am particularly happy about this because I am doing this with someone I have come to call a brother and also for humanity sake.

“We have written a lot for sensitization and it is now time to put them together as capsules in order to help anyone in need of help.

“We owe it as a duty to speak for the boy child not because there’s a boy living in every man, but for the sake of humanity that seek peace of mind and solutions in place of troubled existence.

“We wear our challenges everyday not because there are no suitable garments to be worn, but the society has made us to believe that we have no rights to express our emotions.

“We cry secretly not because of fear of being seen, but the society has branded us as stones without feelings. Every boy child has a story to tell and if this one is not part of the numerous stories ever heard, share with someone close to you and free them from everything called pain.”

There, he said it all.

“Humans Are Oblivious Of Me” is a free eBook. It’s sneak peek into books Maxwell and I are working on, independently.
