Originally, including lyrics of pop music, poems seldom get to hearts of readers rightly if those do not have any kind of anonymity. However, we can catch a glimpse of Mori Yukinojo as an individual on these poems although it is limitedly. They make some multiplier effect with other poems, and more directly the words come into our minds.

The beginning is Wake Up; It is a Dream from here on. 38 Samples of Loving Despair is constructed just like a well-balanced concept album. We could feel Japan of the twenty first century from the poems and then, some might shed tears after reading the poem collection since there is a lot to impress deeply.

Some may think poems are hard to approach. But please trust Mori Yukinojo who has for a long time been active in the forefront of pop music lyrics. He excellently selected accessible words and you can enjoy his world enough. As an entry of poems, it works so nicely, needless to mention now.
