Who knew that memories of a spiritual retreat and a long bumpy roll down the mountainside blended with a college student's new awareness would result in such a touching and heartwarming literary adventure. That adventure comes alive through the words that rhythmically flow from the pages of the book, We Surrender: A Collection of Inspirational Poems & Lyrical Verse.


   We Surrender: A Collection of Inspirational Poems and Lyrical Verse
ismore than a tender poetry book. It is a rhythmic combination of subtle mind joggers, of fond memories, of vivid calls to action, of ancestral remembrances, of joy, of passion, of witty call and response, and of personal visions shared in love. The words reflect the experiences, thoughts, and perspicacity of the mother-daughter team known as Seasons of the Mind: Akosua & Sakinah Ali-Sabree. This soulful book, full of positive inspiration, also includes a reflection guide and gentle reminders of just how Divine each reader truly is.


Canaan Valley

Amidst the winding paths,
and the tall trees
the morning pleasantly greets me
the sun warms me
the mountains and trees
whisper to me.

A calmness penetrates
and surrounds me
the doubts and sorrows
I carried here
stripped from me
on the mountaintop.

As I roll rapidly
down the mountainside
unaware of the end
safe in the infinite arms of God
I release my fear, have fun and
rejoice as rapture rushes in.
The earth hugs me and I rest here
knowing I shall return
to Canaan Valley.
by Akosua Ali.Sabree

Professional Reviews

Leslie Esdaile, Best Selling Author and
“Poems like ‘Surrender’ truly nourish the Soul.”

Richard Watson, Artist, Composer and Musician
“We Surrender: a rare treat for mother and daughter to share their hearts with the world. Their work shows a positive growing relationship, and it is a spiritual feast.”

Izona S. Fripp, Biologist, Author
We Surrender helped me to remember the good things life has to offer. I cried, laughed, said amen, and sometimes found myself imagining peaceful places and things. In short I surrendered.
