THE KEEPERS OF THE SHRINE is a compilation of original poems that were written for young adults, both male and female, and children of all ages. It addresses manhood and womanhood, and the responsibility each one of us has for our own livelihood and life. It is reflective of the mood, conditions, and problems that are prevalent within the black race in the United States, and the opposition to overcome. It is an attempt to motivate each of us to look into our inner selves and seek the true understanding that accompany faith, which also allows us to embrace a spiritual peace and calmness that will make you free. It deals with social, economical, and racial harmony and disharmony, along with posing challenges to the people, specifically young adults, to know their glorious history and the will of their ancestors who somehow elevated their courageous souls during times of adversity and conflict. This book is a poetic perspective of the things that people think, see and feel. It reinforces the oneness of people, and that the people are collectively one.
