In My Father’s House is a rich collection of living memories, artistic acuity and poetic ingenuity. The poets were telling their stories. They gave voice to vision only seen through the keyhole of the night. They wanted light on wounds only known to the heart and felt by the mind. Wounds of silences that were too loud to say, except through the medium of art. They did not set out to write a book. Or create a memorialization of pain. They did not set out to make the reader shower them with the rain of pity; no, that was not the intention. These poets expressed the inmost feelings, as they recalled growing. Some, through sheer poetic skills, were able to create a fictive space to generate a similitude of misery, negativity and pain – and that is brilliance in itself - and truth as the poets wanted us to believe; most of these poets creatively told their version of how growing was. Others chose to write an admixture of reality and hope. Some decided to reinvent their truth and celebrated how their fathers’ house was antithetical to pain and misery. It is this diversity that makes this anthology stands out. The ability to create one’s truth and do it excellently too. This is a beautiful work of art. And it is truth in itself
