Nana Efua Rockson launches “Tebi’s Book Of Love Poems” to mark pre- birthday celebration
Nana Efua Rockson, the Group Head, Corporate Affairs and Marketing at GLICO Group Of Companies Limited has launched a powerful book that sends strong messages on love titled “Tebi’s Book Of Love Poems” to mark her pre- birthday celebration.
According to her, the name “Tebi” simply means “son of a rock” in Ga and she cherishes it as it happens to be a pet name given to her by a friend as a special translation of her surname “Rockson” .
In her bid to discover love, Tebi has come to symbolise all the cascading, rocky, gruelling and beautiful adventures of love to the author.
It is said that writing poems about love is one of the best ways to grow, both intellectually and emotionally, with language articulating and framing experiences symbolized .
In an interview with Nana Efua Rockson, she explained that, she developed keen interest in writing love poems because love is beautiful.
According to her, everyone has ever loved somebody or something hence the need to express love through poems is very essential for life.
“These love poems and quotes will provide people with a greater way of communicating with their loved ones, which will lead to a stronger and better relationship”.
“If you write poetry, you can get in touch with the big issues of the meaning of life and develop a spiritual appreciation for it,” she explained.
She further noted she is inspired to write love poems because it comes to her naturally since she read literature in her secondary school as a course of study.
“Almost all of us love to tell the feelings that are deep within us with poetry. Anyone who reads my poems falls in love with the message; therefore, it urged me on to put together these 13 love poems,” she concluded.
Some of the titles of the love poems she has written so far include: What is the colour of your love?, The Energy of my love, The Smile, Love Hurts so bad, Heart Beat, I Am falling in love and Am I losing my mind?.
Interestingly, having attended Co- educational institutions all her life, one would expected her to form a CLUB for both sexes but No.
Her reasons are that young girls often encounter several challenges; therefore, if they are mentored early they become assertive and good decision makers.
“I intend to visit some schools and share my experience with them to boost their confidence.” She indicated.
