Born in Zambia, Daliso Banda has lived within unique cultures in both his native country as well as China, and his diverse background shines through in his imagery. Banda offers a fascinating contrast between what he experienced living in other countries with the universal events he has experienced in relationships as he shares his profound thoughts about life and death-joy and sadness-love and hate. In the poem "Heartbreaker," the reader is transported back to the memory of a first love when Banda writes, "She's tender and caring. The kind of a woman that makes a man forget about the outside world." In "Friends Forever," Banda captures the beauty of two souls who find the peace of everlasting friendship: "Lovely like a rose, faithful like a diary. Friends from the start-friends till the end of time."
For those who are experiencing loneliness or who are just dreaming of better days, Banda's flowing and lyrical style accompanies a strong message of hope that illustrates that no one is ever truly alone.
