A collection of Love poems and poems on other subjects written between the seventies and nineties.

At the end of the Nigerian civil war, there was an emergence of writers who wrote poems on the subject of war and remembrance. I started writing poems too on the civil war which form part of this book. In the seventies when I went through university and national service, I found myself writing poems for the women I loved and my relationships in general.There are also poems on political issues, hopes and disillusionment. The collection is a poetic perspective on my life over a period of three decades.
