I Know Why Your Mother Cries (IKWYMC) is not just a collection of poetry but a manifestation of the tears Mothers have cried and still cry. The collection is engaging, utilizes humour, collective imagery and creates a special eureka feeling which every one no matter class,age or gender can relate with. It addresses almost every motifs of life. Every one born of a woman should find pleasure in this beauty. And the beauty lies in the tears your mother sheds... "But with your woman's tears, the world becomes complete" (Stanza 15) IKWYMC is a poetry about love, feminism, motherhood, failed promises, poverty, corruption, will, injustice, leadership, hope and the dream we collectively share. "The language is simple, almost prosaic in order to make the message clear to the masses that he represents..." Professor Hope Eghagha (From Foreward)

  • shoolaoyindamola Kehinde is a one of a kind type of poet. He is a political poet that advocates for justice and for change that benefits the less privileged in our communities. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
