Washington DC Author Publishes Poetry Collection

September 20, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
A Book of Poetry for the Nations: For SHALOM, a new book by Babatunde Adeyemi Adekson, PhD, has been released by RoseDog Books.

A Book of Poetry for the Nations: For SHALOM was written starting in early 2019 after a period of deep physical anguish, spiritual disorientation, and intrapsychic pain. The poems contained in this collection are truly reflective of the author's life, experiences, love, and, in some cases, hatred, outlook, and perspective about self, others, and the immediate and external world around me. They are meant to be an intriguing and controversial challenge to the status quo, and a source of inspiration to those who might have experienced similar trajectories in life, and for those who might be human enough to have the capacity to empathize with the pains and struggles of the downtrodden and oppressed.
