What can one say about a collection of pieces, such as Soul Be Free II? It is both a command and a plea. For those who believe that therapy can only be received or given in one way, Soul Be Free II can only be described as therapy through poetry. It is medicine for what aches the heart and mind by simultaneously speaking the words so often hidden by the mask of pretense we wear to impress those who cannot heal us. These words are piercing, yet gentle. They invite you to read, and even stop when your heart is too full to continue; but like any good meal, you do not want to stop until it is over. — Worokya Duncan, Ed. D., Duncan Educational Consultants
So many people are content with being boxed/plastic versions of themselves even as an inward cry for healing persists. In this volume of Soul Be Free II, Alfonso and Ouida continue the work of highlighting the deepest inner cries causing the reader to stop, to remember, and to ignore the voice saying, "Doing the hard work of letting God heal and restore you is not worth the pain of revisiting the old wound." This work will help begin the conversation. Your will to be free will give it wings. — Katrice "Binki" Walker, Area Director, Young Life
Dr. Alfonso Wyatt and wife, Ouida, once again give us a prophetic masterpiece with words of liberation, healing and restoration. They echo the voice of the oppressed and those who are free, those who have been blinded, and those that can see. These are not just poetic words, but vignettes that are sure to inspire, challenge and recharge the reader. Soul Be Free II is a must read for people seeking inspiration in these trying times. Dr. Wyatt and Ouida's poetry transcends race, gender, class and culture; it speaks to the struggle and challenges of the human condition. The author's writing is strategic in taking the reader on a journey into those parts of the Soul and Spirit that are seldom explored or explained. If you are willing, you will encounter truth, and this truth will certainly set you free! — Dr. Alfred Correa, D. Min., President, National Association of Youth Chaplains, Adjunct Professor, New York Theological Seminary
