As much as one would love to keep a record of smooth sailings in life, fortunately the road is full of twists and turns. Whether it is personal or global humanitarian crises, you will have a share of yours to weep for. Those trying moments teach us to desire greatness in ourselves and wider humanity.
On reading this anthology, one encounters miracles of embracing oneself as divine being; adulthood and its dilemmas, troubles and heartaches; and national identity, broken homelands with violence and destruction of land and human spirit.
Nevertheless, the trials and sufferings encountered will have to be triumphed. As the human spirit is resilient, I hope at the end you will celebrate with me the “winning” attitudes with triumphs over trials.
This poetry book dares you to emerge with a kind heart: despite the thickness of the mist, the pride you will have displayed, the tears you will have shed, the rants you will have made, the fierce poems you will have written and winning attitudes you will have dared.
Emerge with a kind heart: because everything about you is perfect!
