In his debut book of poetry, Kenyan poet, Gathu Wahome, captures not only the heart and soul of his native Kenya, but he strikes a universal chord as well. He creates a vivid image of the human condition through alternating poems of love and life with those of war and history. In doing so, Wahome creates a tapestry of perfectly balanced personal and historical poems. Interspersed throughout the book are poems written in his native language of Gikuyu . Gathu offers his volume of poetry to uplift spirits and minds. He says," The struggle for self-determination has largely gone unsung. Poetry is a vital force that heals and rejuvenate the mind and heart of its consumer. To all the helpless masses that refuse to rise up and dare to defy or interrogate their sorry political, social and economic conditions.
