The Voices Within
by Kadodo Webster F
This anthology is a collection of feelings arising from varying experiences ranging from the full impact of colonialism and the weight of authoritarianism in the history of a people. Some of the poems are based on internal voices resultant of exploited people during colonialism and economic meltdowns such as the one experienced in Zimbabwe in the recent years. Other poems are a collection of experiences by Zimbabweans who travelled to neighbouring countries to buy commodities for resale to make ends meet.
The Voices Within is a must read for all those who care about human conditions in our worlds perchance we may do something about these voices within.About the Author
