My Pain, Your Pain is a scintillating poetry book consisting of fifty-four poems that are written from the bottom of the heart. The poems cover a range of universal themes such as human pain, oppression, suffering, natures lamentations, African consciousness, and whispering voices. The poems are living stories about the trials and tribulations of mankind in our contemporary world; and in some ways, they portray a pathetic lack of restraint in our power relations. No doubt some of the poems prick our conscience, evoke our sense of guilt, court our sympathy, raise our levels of consciousness, shake the very foundations of our values, andat the same timegive us hope in the midst of despair. The book is thoroughly captivating, ensnaring, and intoxicating, which breathes fresh air in a world fixated on science and technology.
