English

This book of poems aims to take the reader to a deeper level of insight.  It will be enjoyed by people of every age and level of education, because the writer succeeds in bringing light to bear on accepting fate, and on gaining new strength and the will to achieve success in life, – regardless of a background of deprivation, or hurtful experiences. The author appeals to parents experiencing challenges in bringing up their children; youth finding it difficult to accept their difficulties; and, in fact, anybody who is tempted to give up on life: all can find here the means of revival and new zeal to ‘hang in there’. This book is recommended not only for scholars and college and university students, but also for those finding a quiet moment to read for pleasure.
