The Words of my Mother is a multi-layered poetry collection which unearths a world which remains buried in our modern-day era, which is dominated by television, laptops, smartphones and social media.

This is a truly African book which takes the reader by the hand and crosses from this fast-paced world which is filled with distractions, to a place where life is still: life is simple; flowers bloom in all their rich and colourful beauty, and readers enter a place of hope and freedom, as they delve deeper into the authors' mind.
