PERCEPTIONS OF A PAST TO COME is a cauldron of experiences, emotions, and incidents, which brutally decries religious charlatanism, political tyranny, sexual perverseness and social injustice. It ruffles one's perception of slavery, capitalism, justice, self-preservation, faith, and many more, projecting the current state of individualism and decadence as a direct result of the depravity of the human nature. This foreboding atmosphere is redeemed only with the introduction of concepts and interpretations of love, hope, perseverance, and the belief in oneself, and one’s unearthed abilities. Most of the poems were written within a Ghanaian context, and, as a result, describe the social, political, religious and economic landscape of the country in both the colonial and post-colonial eras. The use of Ghana, however, is largely an extended metaphor that represents developing countries in particular but can be used to test the projection of developed/western countries as either a façade or a true image.
