A BOOKTIFUL LOVE
A Booktiful Love is a collection of poems that deal with the entire human experience in its various forms. Didactically rich, the poems explore ideas like love, relationship, patriotism, marriage, morality and many other ideas pertinent to living.
Variety of themes nonetheless, what unifies the poems in this collection is the simplicity and ambiguousness of language which the poet employs; the poems draw their strength from the clarity of meaning which they carry.
These are poems with a purpose. The poet didn’t shy away from this fact as he wrote in the poems, “Writers” and “Write for Rights”. The poet’s philosophy is evident in this collection, to him, a writer is saddled with the responsibility to use his words to teach, preach and fight for freedom. He wrote:
“Let’s change the world, one writer at a time
Write those words till the world gets it right.”
One other thing about this collection is the poet’s experimentation with words, and this is clear right from the title. The poet sets himself as a creator of words. The reader is bound to travel into the mind of the poet in each poem to understand how his mind works. As one approaches the end of this collection, one not only gets engrossed in its didactic richness, you also appreciate the uniqueness of the poet’s style and the sense of responsibility he carries.
