Publisher’s Synopsis

A man leaves his war-torn homeland to seek a peaceful life on foreign soil. …

These multifaceted poems touch on such themes as life and death, war and peace, love and hate. There is angry bitterness in these lines at the senseless loss of life which every war produces. Yet this is most effectively balanced by the view that out of the war in the author’s homeland will come love and peace.
