The poems within Oaths contain a promise made to oneself for a better future. Read with all the hope you can muster.

A stunning and emotional follow-up to 2022’s Serenity, poet F.S. Yousaf continues his exploration of the self along the journey into adulthood in Oaths. This earnest collection picks up where Serenity left off, speaking to young readers who may be struggling with finding purpose in life and feeling hopeless in the face of recession, war, and division. Yousaf doesn’t offer answers, but a welcoming hand and a warm embrace to remind us all that we are not alone on the journey toward hope, love, and a life of meaning.
