    Kwiyet (quiet) Wizdom (wisdom) volume trilogy By Tony Kwame Ansah Jr A review by Roger G Lewis In Writing this review I have sought to reflect first impressions, a consideration of the whole upon reflection on further reading and to highlight strong phrasing which sums up the main themes in the collection. I think the Poet Tony Kwame Ansah Jr in his own 'about' section tells us something of who he is, the poetry tells us so much more of our own lives and not just his own . About the Author The author (Tony Kwame Ansah Jr) is a son, a husband, an uncle and a father with aspirations to improve current circumstance. Tony was born and raised in Rhode Island, USA, however, his ancestry is from Ghana. Also, he is a student of World History and Politics and a freelance writer of poetry. Lastly, Tony is a human interested in social service and public administration, which stems from his profession and MPA degree The Collection is a... More > combination between half finished thoughts and themes and completed and accomplished poetry. The first read through for this reader identified three stand out pieces that represent fairly the thoughts and feelings and observations in the Other titles, Employ Pressure, Straight as they come & Ghanian American articulates the full range of complex problems , hope sadness and frustration tackled by the collection as a whole. On first read through the poem Married and lonely so strongly articulated a female voice that I wondered if the poet was a Woman. On first read through I was left with a strong impression of the poets complex understanding of the Subject , Object dichotomy with a full understanding and empathy for the Otherness of the human condition. I was keen to re read and reflect in more depth. In the poem I am Sick of surviving like this I was particularly struck by this phrase. I'm sick of surviving and living like this. ''An at will employee just another nobody in the system An at will employee just another supposed victim.''< Less
