Lamentations: A Collection of Poetry

Free sample

In this book, Kazeem Olalekan uses the universal language of poetry to describe a life journey. He draws inspiration from great poetic works to illuminate his journey and in his words: ' another traveler somewhere and in another place to make sense of what is a voyage we must all make'.

Lamentations draws on the oral traditions of the Yoruba language and infuse it with the best of the world's poetic outputs to produce a book set to take readers on a journey of passion, exhilaration, sadness and reflection - all set within a musical framework.

This book has had a cathartic effect on the author and reflects on the complexity of perception and of the power of God.
