About the Book

Heartbeat is a reflection of the learnings that Oyindamola had, at her first encounter of poetry. It is a classical, yet simple collection that highlights, love, war, romance, experience and spirituality from an ingenuous perspective. This ensemble, an intriguing debut, gives experession to the author’s genuine feelings of pain, joy, nostalgia and depression.

This collection is also the invention of the author’s vulnerability to topics that concern her gender. She gives hints of feminism but in an inconspicuous way by writing poems about rape, and women’s strength in wearying events like war and in love.

Her second collection to be published in August, 2017 unleashes this feminism beyond measure. It is an incomparable showcase of her metamorphosis as woman as well as her reality as a young black woman in America.
