You Need More Than Dreams
‘You Need More Than Dreams’ is a collection of didactic and instructive poems targeted at youths and teenagers. The teenage and youthful years are decisive years of one’s life, being formative.
Whatever habits, choices, and decisions one makes in those years have a way of directing the course of one’s life, and their impact can be lasting. It is for this reason that the poet has written instructive poems to help teenagers navigate this sensitive time of their lives.
More than being didactic and instructive, the poems also mirror the experience of teenagers—their fears, concerns and fantasies.
Tolu’ A. Akinyemi has written fourteen previous books, including A Booktiful Love, which won the poetry category at the Best Indie Book Awards, and Inferno of Silence, which won the short stories category in the Indie Reader Discovery Awards.
