Love And Other Afflictions …emotions unleashed… In life we go through all kinds of experiences, some so pleasant that you feel a magical, tingling sensation that makes you want to climb to the top of the highest mountain and sing “What a Wonderful World”. Others are so unpleasant that you feel like screaming wildly and throwing someone down from the top of the same mountain. Thankfully however, there are less dangerous ways of expressing these extreme feelings, and safer alternatives are to be found in the writing of poetry. ‘Love and Other Afflictions’ is Sam Uquah’s own personal podium and runway from where he takes you on an intriguing journey which awakens potent emotions buried deep within. ...

This work: “Sex Symbolism of Woman” which I wrote as but a young man growing up based upon the prevalent situations and lessons learnt, is about the Pains and Joy, Moments of Sadness and Hope. Wouldn’t you agree with me that we have gathered much inside us - be it be negative pains or positive joys- and need our incredible skills and talents in using these negative pains and positive joys in constructively shaping and imparting our generation? Well, we’ve been born and so it remains for us to use all we’ve learnt and gathered through life to better our own lives and help people around us who are struggling as we are or as we have to stand . . . This piece here are adapted from my earlier work: “Poetic Memoirs of a Young Son” To the giver of gifts, to all who have helped in the publication of this work, and to you who I desire to reach do my appreciations go to from my heart. ...

Life has not always been what it seems Life has led me to turns I never had envisaged: Turns that had despair and misery, fortunes and smiles; All coming out to greet me like a welcome stranger. Sometimes I laugh, Sometimes I cheer; It never seems so all the time inside me. During these times, as I laugh at and cheer at people, I really wish they would see through to my heart- So lonely and cold does it seem. Sometimes I cry and when no one I see to comfort me, I break further. Sometimes, my heart bleeds and when no one I see to care, bleeds more. My joints are weakened under my burdens I could feel my heart beat faster....... This work: Glass Apple—a Toast to the Reality of Life and Truth is about the lessons I have learnt in life: all the lessons of life with its Adventures and Conquests, Battles and Victories, De-motivations and Motivations, Pains and Joy, Moments of Sadness and Hope. All life valuable lessons can be read in every line of this work. Wouldn’t you agree with me that we have gathered much inside us - be it be negative pains or positive joys- and need our incredible skills and talents in using these negative pains and positive joys in constructively shaping and imparting our generation? Well, we’ve been born and so it remains for us to use all we’ve learnt and gathered through life to better our own lives and help people around us who are struggling as we are or as we have to stand . . .
