FIGHT A Collection of Poems

Product no.: HP235

Sharnette Woosen-Henry


We live in a world where we are constantly being judged by the colour of our skin... our gender... our faith... our social status. For many, these judgements remain unanswered or unchallenged and they turn the other cheek; their silence giving false authority to continued injustice.

Haile Selassie said that, “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph.”

The poems within this debut collection aim to inspire the voice within and empower those who feel powerless and have remained silent.

Life is a journey along which we will encounter many challenges that we must fight to overcome.

Excellent work
from on 11/10/2019
Lived it, loved it, appreciate it, empowered by it. We have come to understand that the hardness and challenges we face in life were solely to prepare us for what we are up against today. Thanks to the author for the reminder, the reassurance that all will be well and that it all worked together for good.
