-- This collection of poems is a response to the happenings in the author's society as it struggles through the different stages of democratic leadership. It is divided into two parts. The first part depicts the misery of the needy, the dispossessed, the oppressed, the ruled and the exploited as they suffer at the hands of unjust leaders. The second part is about love, life and nature. People have been crying about these plights and every heart desires a change. But the questions are: who will cause this change and how and when will it happen? As these questions remain unanswered, the people continue to wait for a Saviour while lives and properties continue to be lost and human and financial resources are wasted by those who rule.
