In the past year, society across the world has had to endure the most unprecedented executive orders which have controlled their civil liberties. Along with the widespread lockdowns, demands for social distancing, and mask-wearing, people have also been divided on many other important issues. In Slicchological Sessions by Saven "Con-A" Watts, written in June 2020, Saven highlights the trend of shutting down debate, cancel culture, and censorship. The power of social media and their 'Fact-Checkers', the advancement of digital currency, fake news, and the hidden but influential elites in society. How has protesting changed the direction of police brutality of minorities and are the silent majority anywhere closer to being heard? In this short but powerful collection of five poems, Saven invites you to examine the world around you and the injustices that we have accepted as a new normal and question if this is a world that is fair and just. How can we as a society join together under the umbrella of humanity and ensure the next generation is given the chances they rightfully deserve?
Slicchological Sessions by Saven "Con-A" Watts is yet another powerfully insightful collection of poetry. His words and views of his community and human behavior, in general, resounded with me so deeply. Saven's passion to make the world a better place where everyone strives to become the best version of themselves is inspirational. His style of poetry reminds me of heavenly prophecies and revelations that evoke debate and self-reflection. Saven covers themes that speak for the unheard and silenced in society. He doesn't apologize for his dynamic, compelling views and I hold that personal trait in the highest regard. Saven brings the genre of poetry to many who have never considered reading poetry. His call for unity and peace is found throughout this collection and is especially highlighted with this line, 'let us all unify in the spirit of the most high and stand up against the army of Satan.' Saven encourages us to take personal responsibility, not just for ourselves and our communities, but also to stand up to injustices when we see them. I agree with his views that if we stand as a collective, then positive change can occur but we must open our eyes, minds, and hearts to make this a reality.
