Madame Wesley is a talented writer! Liberian is fortunate to call her its own! I have read the works of this poet extraordinaire an I am moved every time. For Jabbeh Wesley though, her work will live long in the pages of our minds, thereby enriching the culture heritage and literature of her peoples! Well done.
