Deeper Shades of Blue was written mostly right after my father died in 2012. Although some of the poems are about his death they always end up with redemption in the end with joy and peace through Christ Jesus. This book also talks about loves lost, but what is different about this book than my other one, Silence and Darkness, is that there is a new found hope for the hopeless and peace for those at unrest. Also, there is courage and strength found in these words.
In his first collection of poetry, Raminder Bajwa offers verse on a wide range of topics that question life, explore fear, and embrace innocence.

"I once was homeless, hungry, and afraid. I was cast away by society, deemed a street urchin not worth their time. I felt as if I was a ghost fading into the wind. Over the years, homeless people have been looked at as a problem. When in truths, they are not. They are not a political issue or a scourge. When I was homeless I came across a wide range of people. With stories that deserve to be told. Maybe these poems will change something.... Maybe they won't.... All that matters is that they change you."
