The Rhythmn of My Rhyme Sandra A. Mushi The Rhythm of My Rhyme is- a collection of poems on the reflections of a contemporary young Tanzanian woman. It captures what the poet sees around her. She speaks – in the form of a journey of self discovery – in the voice of women in love; women out of love; abused children; abused women; content women, women who have found themselves (emotionally, mentally and sexually) and who at the end just want to be. It is a journey of questioning, searching, growing, learning, living, maturing, loving, finding, acknowledging and accepting. It is basically about saying it as it – honesty and vividness with deep and raw emotions – giving voice to the voiceless and sense to the senseless. The book is found at all Novel Idea book shops
