This collection of poems captures the theme of struggle in a way very few writers have been able to. The author combines his background of having been brought up in The Gambia and having resided in the UK for the past 14 years to great effect - a fusion of writing styles and constructed realities from the North and South. The poems in this collection have a way of jumping out of the pages to provoke and evoke palpable emotions - emotions of political and personal struggles for a better life and a better world. This collection of 32 poems explores a range of pertinent issues with a complex simplicity that is dramatic and mesmerising; from the dreams of an African school boy to the frustrations of a consummate professional in Babylon.
