The authors, Victoria Willie and Jaachi Anyatonwu, defy restrictions set by society and religion and delve deeper in this expression by describing how sweet it feels when their bodies meet and how sweeter it becomes when love is committed unto the hands of Allah in prayer. You’ll be lifting some of the lines of Amina and Ali to make your lover blush all fifty shades, I bet you.
Diary of a Broken Poet is more than just a collection of poems written by the author on issues that affect him and us. This collection is a discourse between the poet and his readers, an intimate conversation which unveils the ‘beingness’ of the author and his unique perspective of life and living. In the age where focus is on how words are metaphorized into some extended discordance, where clamour is for “depth”, which is often devoid of feeling or emotion, it is a relief to read poems that pour from the soul and being of the poet!
The book, Ọzọemena, which eventually became a collection in the process will speak to every part of your subconscious and humanity, it will challenge your mind through a process and will never leave you the same way it met you but certainly as a better person through transformation. As you journey with me through this book of meditation, you will discover the power in words and why this weeping of a people so marginalized and subjugated by deceit in form of a rancid note must stop. The music of unity appealing to the ear presently is riddled with cosmetic love and cacophony of lies.
