"The poems in this collection show Ida Ngongkum's concerns about the world. The mind, of course, cannot be calm in a tumultuous universe, a universe so well described in the poems as 'crazed hullabaloo', a world where God is forsaken and a world in which peace is hard to find. Like every good poet, she instils hope in humankind through visionary hints. The solution to pain and sorrow is to embrace the life beyond. She adopts an advisory tone that spells out the idea of having a purpose in life without which life is a failure and causes overwhelming sorrows. Ida Ngongkum opens up her emotional life for all to see, feel and learn from it. The reader will find in the collection fascinating poems that will inspire readers of all ages."

John Nkemngong Nkengasong, Writer and Critic
