I Can't Breathe

FOREWORD




The poems contained in this exceptional collection beat directly on the heart of the African, challenging with words that question and command a sense of duty for Motherland Africa’s common man. With a feeling of the true African manliness and spirit of a non-deserting will, the poet gives us lines attesting to his roots stoutly, as well as poems that mirror overpoweringly on the very depth of the soul.

Here in I CAN’T BREATHE, Williams has no doubt demonstrated being a bounteous extraordinary poet to reckon with. His poems found in these pages are symbolic of hope, gearing this sublime essence as well to the feet of our divine Creator. Memories of a homeward root and earliest beginnings of an earnest journey are regurgitated. The bravado and demanding sense of duty which his imagery connotes sparks fire to the mind. This in itself gives his imagery the very strong quality of a vibrant voice.

Particularly interesting is his style of rendition in poems written as a grand performance. In this way the poet elicits a silent response of poetic justice from the reader, purging emotions and having attentive readers listen to the strength of that which is reflective of all that is harsh as if a pool of pain.

His poems paint with evocative imagery life’s varying and contemplative phases. And with adept ease, the poet drops his image-filled observations like an exploring passer-by. He further mentions with sober subtlety the agony of a Nigerian nation in distress. But in the midst of this Williams still timely places a tender touch with an emotional height of love to soften the degree of pain his images exude.

Most promising is the way Williams takes us through life, exploring with imagistic simplicity its mysteries that are not just pondered upon but unraveled with remarkable grace and poise. For just like that particular feel of watching a dove soar, it is with same gracefulness that this poet writes.
