Rasheed Odunade Akande about this book: this is my first attempt at publication. first attempt at picking the pen to write from my heart. first attempt at trying to be the person I have always dreamed to be. first attempt at everything good in my life. This collection of poetry stems from the attempt to be different from the lot in which i find myself, it stems from my attempt to record my life in poetic lines, it stems from my desire to be just me. this collection of poetry collates the earliest experiences of a child, an adolescent, a youth and a young adult. this attempt chronicles my life from its beginning, the loss, the confusion, the love, the dangers of living in a polygamous home. the writing of this collection spans ten years of attempts, picking the pen, being discouraged by learned friends in the area of poetry composition/ writing and editing, the encouragement from friends who really have no idea what its all about. this is my first and most cherished experience collated in a book. the first of every dream i ever had.
