In this open-minded anthology, Akona Metu, published author and poet, courageously addresses complex issues, most of which people of all kinds, creeds and colours will at some point themselves have to address.

The Gift of a Thousand Words is exactly that - a gift. Metu's poetry calls for the reader to read, digest and re-read each and every line. It is loaded with meaning and sentiment and leaves one with just one question: How ever did she think of that? It is a daring debut written in the true spirit of the author. Her voice is consistent, honest and compelling. Her imagery transports one into her world and allows one to feel with her. While Metu's style may not conform to that of every poet and reader, one is sure to find a poem here that resonates long after you have put this gem down. A wonderful read!
