Two poems from Confidence Amaka Chukwuedu| PAROUSIA Magazine

ABYSS OF A TROUBLED HEART They call her a female. For she seems weak and little in their sight. But she is queenly enamel, that decorates everything that has light.

The 1000 Young African Poets Anthology | PAROUSIA Magazine

Introduction: There has been a growing concern among young creatives in Africa regarding lack of recognition of their poetic creativity by the older generation of poets and writers. While this concern is genuine, there is also a concern among older generations regarding the quality of poetic works coming from a generation of writers whose schooling has been attributed to the proliferation of social media writing. There is a gap between the class of Soyinka, Achebe, Clark, etc. and the current generation. Interestingly too, even among contemporary writers, there are divergent opinions on what constitutes modern or contemporary African poetry.
