Lilac Bush

“Lilac Bush” welcomes each reader to go on a perspective-altering pilgrimage along with the author while taking in the poetic aroma of lilacs which symbolizes renewal and love. From valleys of hardship and turmoil to mountains of sheer strength and hope, each poem serves as a beacon of awakening and cultural change. Through heartfelt narration, Pamela C. Nwokeji shares her personal experiences growing up in an urban neighborhood to bring awareness to the ongoing strife endured by Black Americans. Above all, this poetry book was penned into existence with this one main vision in mind: to be a call-to-action for the future generations for societal change through stronger families, higher education, success and strength in God.

[Comments on poem "A Reason"] "Yes! This was an echo of my own thoughts as a child. You captured the feeling and thoughts precisely."

Loved it! Textured, with a beautiful cadence and an important message, Nwokeji's first collection is poetry with something to say!

I loved the first poem, Free. It was light, airy, yet so fierce. You speak on the pain of your father being absent.

In addition to the emotional impact of the poems, the stories and descriptions were well crafted. It gives a motherly love to cautionary tales to pass the torch of higher learning, healing, and victory.

But all I know is these poems have shed light on these issues and in a way made it an awareness to some things that aren’t right and some things we should reflect upon ourselves and take a closer look at things we should cherish in a way like family, God or just coming together as United.
