Resilient: a word conceived to describe Africa. Her people, forged in the flames of adversity seem to emerge from lack, struggle and global disregard with grace, faith and passion for life: a testament to the great, innate strength of the human spirit.

This volume serves as a historical record and its impact on a life, from Kenya’s first taste of national strife to the inauguration of the first black president of the United States of America. It chronicles a young man’s journey from life as usual to hell and back, his inner quest for identity, love, and answers to the issues that plague Mother Africa.

Declassified Verses is a collection of modern African poetry in various styles organized into five themes: the Book of Creation, the Book of Tears Resilience and Hope, the Book of Money, Sex and Love, the Book of Identity, Statecraft and Nationhood and, the Book of Conversations with God.
