Parts one and two are deeply moving, heartwrenching and beautiful. Parts three and four are mixed in tone and at times become straight up advice instead of poetry. However, it was brilliantly written overall. The organization was well done. I appreciated the profoundness in its simplicity. The honest vulnerability. The openness to oneself in her writing. It is shocking, relaxing, eye-opening, simple. It is inspiring.

Wow that was impressive. I flew through this work of art. I'm at a loss for words. I don't normally read poetry but this was fantastic! I look forward to reading more!!!!

I thought this was a very well put together poetry collection 

I am still very new to poetry but I was fully invested in this one. I finished it in one sitting (it only took me about 50 min) and I’d recommend that reading experience if you have the time.

There were definitely some sections that resonated with me a lot. I could also imagine recommending this to other people in my life that could really get something out of specific poems. I specifically enjoyed that the poetry felt very intentional. 

I will say the final section was the least impressive to me since it started to lean into the message a bit too on the nose. 

Overall I found this a beautiful collection.

я абсолютно не знаю, як правильно оцінювати поезію, тому опишу виключно відчуття.
сподобалась структура групування(?) тем віршів. те що спочатку стає боляче від факту існування насильства в світі, потім ти занурюєшся у кохання, тут тебе вже розколюють на шматки тим, що з цим коханням може статися, а закінчуєш приємними настановами про гармонію з собою.
з того що не дуже: іноді здавалось, що дещо схоже я ніби бачила десь в описі на акаунтах в дайвінчікє, пабліках вк або з відео про тамблєр еру.
