Author Exposes Nocturnal Voices Through Poetry and Verse
“LISTEN”, by author Shirley Howard Hall,
Forward by Constance Stadler, Phd.
“Listen”, takes a reader deep into the conscientious of the socially, economically, and culturally challenged of the world. Confronting the communal stigmas of not fitting in, “LISTEN” is a first person journey into the poignant lives of those who fail to flourish in today’s society. In this collection of poems the author compels us to look at the mistreated and enslaved. Hopeless and helpless, abused and disenfranchised, their stories scrolled ticker tape style across the bottom of our screens. The author forces us to acknowledge and at times concede to the darkness that masks their faces.

From the chains of slavery to the horrors of abuse, from the terror of the battlefield, to the breakdown of the family, a whirlwind of emotions rise and fall as the author embodies an excruciating honesty in a most unexpected format
