Awaiting Dawn: Echoes of a Haunted Soul

Contemporary Poetry in Question of our Existence 

by Debra Ayis


'Awaiting Dawn: Echoes of a Haunted Soul' is a mix of everything that keeps our hearts beating and our souls alive. It touches on existential issues that pervade society, from issues of depression and loneliness to the joys of self-discovery and starting afresh. It looks at hope and contentment while challenging us to be unsatisfied with the status quo. 

It tackles social justice issues briefly by investigating themes of education for girls (gender parity), sexual violence, migration, incarceration, disaster, and poverty while exploring the evolving landscape of women’s empowerment in the world of today. It also seeks to explore our responsibility to mother earth and delve into our relationship with the creator.

Thoughts and Memories:

A Collection of Poetry

by Debra Ayis

'Thoughts and Memories' is an eclectic collection of poems. The collection reflects the yearning of the Christian heart and the struggles a believer encounters on a day to day basis. These are poems of encouragement and poems as prayers. It calls to believers and non-believers alike to dive deeper into their relationship with the creator.

Though most of these poems were originally written for an African audience – Nigerian to be specific, nonetheless, this book has a poem for everyone; it crosses cultural barriers by bringing to life the realities we face every day and the circumstances constantly surrounding us as individuals.
