introspection: a poetry series in heptastichs

A series of seven-line poems that captures the need and desire of every individual to find meaning and relevance in a society bedecked with competitions. The essence of Introspection is to point your attention, dear Reader, to the things you have been overlooking and help harness the power within you to achieve your set goals in life. The book explores the Nigerian society artfully, particularly, the Yoruba culture and its beauties, as seen under headings such as Lagos, Ogbomoso, Iroko and The Land. It also addresses both negative and positive societal concerns that clamour for attention, such as poverty, bad road (Ogbomoso), bad governance (The Land), crime and recidivism (Interrogatives), and the influence of Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, LinkedIn and Pinterest) on youths.
