Descripción

The Road Home is a thought provoking, wity and rather controversial collection of poems.

Once the valley was green and golden
Now desolate and barren
We wake up to a vulture’s feast
In the house of pain and hunger
With our troubles melting like lemon drops
Our lives full of needful things
From dusk till dawn we struggle
Walking the valley of the shadow of death
Lonely, lost and scared in a foreign land
Feeling the sadness and all the pain
Brother killing brother
Wondering when all this madness will last
The road home beckons.
In the poem: The road home, the poet laments about his longing for his homeland.
When will this killing this madness end. The poet speaks with a strong voice in this collection which cover a wide range of themes that include love, politics, death, oppression, suffering and the triumph of the human spirit as seen from an African perspective.
“Although some of the poems are from personal experiences, the rest are from experiences of people that I have met, talked to or observed in the course of writing this work.” The poet has this to say about his work.
The book is a must read for people who love Africa especially Africans at home and in the Diaspora.
