|About the Book
Woven within the fabric of change is the basic instinct of the individual to resist change. Yet, in the vastness of a rapidly changing society, the individual is often left unable to express deep-seated and complex emotions. Ordinary people feel trapped in a system where changing cultures impose upon moral beliefs, and modern man is forced to embrace modernism to validate his very existence and self-worth.
In this new collection, Laura Qa brings an explicit dimension to her distinctive visionary poetry. Discordant scenes of daily life are vividly juxtaposed with fantastic images of human reactions to modern technology and values. She constructs an unfeigned portrayal of the internal being searching for a spiritual identity. Here, the individual is everyman, or everywoman, and the quest is not always fulfilled.
