Wake Up Humanity: Poems About You And Me by Elsa Mendoza is a collection of poems that empowers and encourages humanity to rise up and become what they were created to be: custodians of the Earth. The poems deal with a variety of themes, from the crisis of the planet to religious themes, from our source and anchor to where we go from here, from our essence to what we leave behind. Mendoza writes about love and fear, about God, about self-love, and many other things in between. At its heart, this poetry is an exploration of the way we relate to ourselves, to each other, and to the world around us. The poet believes that we have a mission to make the world better and that it can only happen if we fully embrace our humanity.

In these pages, you'll find words that inspire, words that are thought-provoking, and that move the mind to loftier concepts. There is a simplicity of style that is deceptive, veiling the depths of the currents that run through these poems. This is the kind of poetry that speaks directly to the place in our hearts where we are most deeply human. It is filled with a unique form of symbolism, one that depicts the richness of humanity and its potential to evolve into something better. Wake Up Humanity: Poems About You And Me is an invitation to reflect on human values and what makes us a species with a unique mission. Deeply moving and inspiring.
