Mar 15, Jess rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in This dealt with many cliches, but the language was so vivid and descriptive which made me want to keep reading. However, it was a little annoying when the poems changed font a couple times when I flipped the pages and then went back to normal a few pages later. Plus, the lack of titles for each poem made it hard to distinguish whether the poem was still continuing or it started a new one.

It was really confusing to read because I don't know if the next page is a continuation to the one before it or not. Sep 11, Shealea rated it liked it Shelves: poetry. In my opinion, the verses lacked a cohesive flow and sometimes began to appear as randomly chopped up, fragmented sentences instead of coming together into something more lyrical and better structured. I think that technicality-wise, there is certainly a lot of room for improvement and further editing. Most of these passages appeared in the poems that highlighted the journey towards self-actualization. Some of my favorite lines include "It is in that moment where hope is conceived, created instantly as the unrestrained mind makes love to the sensible heart.
It is in that moment where I live. Maybe the world is just fine. I thought them to be very fitting and timely for the intended audience, which is the youth.

In summary, although I struggled with the structural forms of the poems and at times the writing style itself, I still enjoyed reading the collection. In fact, I ended up bookmarking fifteen poems from this collection! Feb 09, Amy rated it really liked it. I am not much on poetry, but this collection is good.
It's mostly non-rhyming, and not really rhythmic, either. So it almost reads more like prose. Little, bite-sized pieces of life and love and what it means to be human. Some of the themes may feel a little trite or cliche, but still worth another take on them. Like some others have said, I would have appreciated titles.
Kalopsia: The delusion of things being more beautiful than they are.
Some of the longer poems take up a full page and it's not immediately clear if the next page is a continuation or a new poem. Some of my highlights: "A heart like honey, you pollinated the earth with kind words, and when you laughed, it was like watching a flower bloom. When asked, others may say different things but what I remember is that you were a garden of color entirely sweet and lovely and when you left, you uprooted from me the flowers for which i had a reason to shine.
Feb 26, Nory M. It engages the reader on the poetic's voice personal journey. It could be used as an introductory text. May be a great text to present poetry to a young audience.

If I was in grade 4 killing time while reading this, I definitely would have appreciated this 'poetry' book. But I was dragging myself through the pages, cringing at how sappy the words were strung. Feb 07, Madison Rene' rated it it was amazing. I loved the imagery in this and the way each page tore at my soul a little more with gentle hands of beauty and wonder. I am in complete awe from this read.
concomexinu.gq Aug 10, Ashley rated it liked it. This book had some poetry that completely blew me away and that I felt greatly moved by, but others that felt very unpolished.
Overall, it is definitely worth the read, and the tone has a lovely feel throughout the whole book, but it would have been nice to see a couple poems out of the many beautiful ones! For the price it is definitely worth reading and recommending to others. Apr 13, Elizabeth Houseman rated it really liked it Shelves: poetry.

It was an absolute pleasure to read. Feb 08, sakimichi rated it did not like it.
I feel really bad saying this but I really felt there weren't a lot of good poems in this. Actually, most felt repetitive, in the messages they try to convey, and the images used. It goes on and on. Frankly, it bored me. I think I initially had high hopes but they really fell when I read this and then skimmed by the later half, because, duh: repetitive.

It read beautifully and I related to it well. As I got further in, it started losing its luster for me.
