In her compelling work, The Autobiography of Poverty: My Childhood in Poem, author, Doris Wellington interweaves graphic poetic narratives that open the portal to a symphonic expose in which those least expected battles and overcomes the crucibles of poverty-one of the most devastating of all human experiences. Dramatic literary language extracts from the severity of her childhood reality and invites readers into a world of transparent vulnerabilities, challenges, and distresses. She is not afraid to confront what some attempt to paint and pass off as an irreversible affliction that disfigures an otherwise perfect society. However, the author points out that it is not the poor who is the stain on society; rather those who close their eyes, pull down their shutters, in hopes that the poor will go away-forgetting that when we turn a deaf ear or a cold heart against human suffering-whatever the plight, we have become the affliction among the afflicted we hate-the evil that stains society with indifference.
