TITLE OF THE POEM:
When some will wish hatred I will wish you love And when others will hate you
I will love you When they will leave you on the ground and will crush you with hooves
I will raise you up and offer you a home
For me too I am just passing through just like you, us, them?
If I had pearls I will share them with you
So that they replace your tears to replace your weapon
So that your heart becomes good
Compassionate with the hungry
I will break your chains and infuse within you Freedom and Love!

Review by Trevor Carolan, Associate Professor of Creative Writing, English Dept., UFV for Candice James:
“One of BC’s indefatigable poets and literary spark-plugs, Candice James is prolific, exuberant, and writes grownup poetry that’s seen its share of dust and joy out on the road. A poet with the long view her work is nature observant, freighted with tenderness and shaped by traditional form as well as metrical invention. There’s no artifice here: what you see is what you get—James is a poet of direct experience and recollected emotion. Old love, the blessedness of rain, things broken too long to be fixed, or the blue stillness of eternity—all are netted by her unquenchable zeal for poetry. From her opening epigraph from Lao Tzu through images of a Captain Morgan kind of night that only long years in Canada can truly understand, the music of what happens is present here in every bittersweet refrain.”
