Overview

Since surviving a blood-spattered civil war in Liberia, West Africa, Meaza –Work has slowly begun to revisit the close kept memories that have been tucked away since the early age of eight. Through poetry, Memoirs of a War-Child examines the emotions that war survivors feel both during and after the blood dries up and the thousands of bodies are buried. While reading the passages, it is clear that war to Meaza-Work is literal as in the 8 year old that had to walk by dead bodies on the side of the streets, but it also is interpreted figuratively as in the boyfriend that took everything that she had and still told her she wasn’t good enough.

Chapter one, Man vs. Environment tells the sad tale of a child who witnessed evil, hate and bloodshed while wondering “Why?” Chapter two, Man vs. Man walks the reader through heartbreak and betrayal committed by those who were loved the most. Chapter three, Man vs. Self defines the true meaning of turmoil as Meaza –Work struggles to be who she wants to be and who she wants everyone else to see. This book truly shows the fine lines in the emotions that one feels when watching the bloodshed on innocent people and having a heart crushed and then stomped on by a loved one.
