My Life of Rhyme by Chris Month
Her poems are full of wit and wisdom of someone older than her years. There are times when it felt like the words came pouring out of her and readers can feel the sense that it was an emotional cleansing to write the poems included in this collection. Poems like "Regret" make readers sit back and think about the words she has written:
If only, if only, if only
If I could correct each mistake
But death won't allow for do-overs
'Cause life gives us only one take.
These words and others included in this collect hit directly into the heart, and draw out emotions the reader may not have thought they had. The collection has an overall feel of something deeply personal and intimate. Month let readers into an aspect of her life and does so in such a raw and emotional way. Some poems are lift and airy while others have deep and dark undertones.
There are no words to describe how wonderful this collection of poetry really is, I recommend it to anyone who loves a great collection of poems. It would make a great addition to any shelf. I give this collection a 5 out of 5 rating. I hope to be able to read more from this poetess.
