Every child craves an identity even before birth, begging for the natural rights of its own personality. After birth the depravity, neglect, segregation, prejudices and abandonment turns her into the negative adult stereotype that endangered the future of our world. Every child needs not be a recycled, battered image of a ruined adult. 'A child on trial' is a theme of this literary work.

The appreciation of the beauty and quality of this work of Poetry is unraveled in it unfolding surreal -realistic life experiences; the exposure of an innocent new life to a strange world that threatens great potential. The clash of cultures, racial prejudice, double standard in societal values and the flowing expression reveals to us the heart of the Narrator who is a child.

Divided into two parts, Part one, though segmented, should be seen as one- in-detachable poetry from beginning to the ending. Segmentation gives the reader a participatory imaginative mind and a reflective pause. Verse rendition is in the first person singular, revealing, as the Unborn goes from one state of being to the other!Part two has Eleven Chapters, a mixture of love, places, people, memorials, morality, cross-cultural, social, environmental, human dignity issues spun into verses with such titles as -Missing People, 9/11Memorial, The Sun Will Not Set, Saworoide, Cellular, Abuja, Love Sunset and more..It is true that the greatest purpose of poetry is to effect positive changes in society. It is also true that poetry could be a form of great entertainments. This book of poetry is one of such graceful mixture.
