Aken V. Wariebi calls herself  “A Student of life”. A graduate of both Rutgers and Syracuse Universities, she loves to help others and make a difference in their lives as they too make a difference in hers. She believes that the life we live, breathes on the path we walk and on this path we shine either a light or create a sense of darkness on our fellow man. This leaves an influence, none the less, which creates a lesson, builds a bridge or creates destruction. She believes however that the light is indeed what living is all about and hopes that this book provides just that; a touch of light in all of us. Ms. Wariebi is originally from Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa and currently resides in the United States.

“Aken Wariebi’s poetic collection covers terrain that speaks to the very souls of people in search of refuge. Her poems are in fact from her soul. And she has generously shared them with us to absorb. A refreshing read and one that is upbeat—this voluminous collection covers topics ranging from A Diet of Love to Running Scared. Each selection touches an area that one might consider taboo while still addressing its familiarity to many. I salute Aken for her in-depth soul searching and erudite ability to illuminate life’s challenges, both big and small.”
Keith A. Alford, PhD, ACSW, Associate Professor and Baccalaureate Director, School of Social Work, Syracuse University

“Wisdom haunts these pages…sometimes in rhyme and sometimes straight with no chaser but always from a vantage point not easily accessed. Aken Wariebi is an exceptional poet who offers words of encouragement and faith and shares her worldview with verve, clarity and conviction. Living Through Poetry is an astonishing accomplishment.”
Djed Snead, Author

“Aken Wariebi’s new book of poetry dances with your soul. The poems reflect a deep understanding of life and all the complexities that make us human.”
Curtis K. Rivers, Mood Makers Books
