Fear After is the title poem in a deeply personal, engrossing, and poignant collection presenting a journey through the author's emotional being. The work is divided into four sections- reminiscence and nostalgia, nostalgia and despair, despair to hope and hope to calm. The poems illustrate the author's reflective mind richly coloured by deep, personal emotions, which as everything else in the world, are subject to the laws of change. Nostalgia easily descends into despair, despair with the help of the lightening quality of hope loosens its grip and allows the mind to resurface into serene calm, and the path of calm makes fear, once strong and powerful, able to be faced in a lighter, more humorous manner. The collection culminates, after all, to the state of fear after'.
