5.0 out of 5 stars Very impactful
Reviewed in the United States on March 10, 2022
A powerful collection of poems – this book really hits many emotions. Several of the poems brought me to tears and made me think a while. I reread several over a few times just to get a better understanding of them and found a deeper connection with the words after each read. The language is understandable, which is nice, but still very poetic with vivid imagery. I can’t say I understood the writer’s meaning behind every single line, but that’s part of the greatness of poetry. The themes are dark at times but are very real and offer hope and strength despite the pain being portrayed. The author obviously suffered a huge loss which I think most of us can relate to – those poems in particular I found to be both haunting and beautiful. Highly recommend also to anyone suffering addiction, mental illness, or who just ponders life.
