Of all the lyric poems to have been written in the name of social justice, ON THE TURNING AWAY imbues warmth and inclines intelligence towards a greater good. This poem in particular has been a reminder to stretch myself in order to encompass the well-being of others and it remains one of my favourites of all time. Click on the image above to hear my rendition of this musical piece. The video was recorded in a steel pipe underneath our main city highway, thus the cool acoustic sound.
