Strange Beauty is a collection of poems that add up to reveal that
failures, trials, limitations, hardships, and losses only make us stronger
by relying on Gods strength and resources; they help us dare to believe
and make us stupid enough to aim higher than we can possible achieve. And
in a strange but beautiful way we begin to realize that everything that
happened was actually stretch us, to make us people of character, dept and

Through the limitations and situations, the human spirit permeates through
all obstacles and that is the Strange Beauty of life.

this collection through the eyes of a young African. These poems depict
the relationship between God and man, love and life with its ups and downs

A promising writer. This collection is more on the sad side. It is strange in its meaning, either too hard or senseless. Over all, ok.
I don't really have much to say about this book, but that some of the poems made me cry. It is a beautiful piece, not the best I have read, but there is something remarkable about it- it is spiritual.
