A Good Change

This is the first book I’ve read by Morgan Harper Nichols and I liked it. The illustrations were beautiful and the poetry was more of a self help message I could picture myself putting on a sticky note in my locker at work. I found it a nice change when compared to recent poetry authors I’ve read recently.
My favourite poem was “All she wanted was love” because it reminded me of how I felt during a hard time in my life. I turned my old breakup into a positive look on the situation.

All she wanted was love-
An adventure with someone
she could count on
She closed her eyes.
Prayed.
Took the leap,
And let him in.
It was love.
She thought it was love.
She said it was love.
Was it love?

And though there were wonderful moments
There were always these lingering thoughts….
Yes today was good.
But what about tomorrow?
Where does this lead?
A year from now.
Where will we be?

Layer by layer
Things fell apart before her eyes.
He was living for the moment,
While she was hoping for the future.
She was hoping for the future.
She was pushed out of his world
And on her own,
Trying to gather the pieces of her heart
And find her way home.

The road back was longs,
And it was strange to being in step with someone,
To journeying on to the rhythm of her own two feet.
She was walking home, in pieces.
But she realized that even though she was broken,
She was still walking home.
She was still headed where she needed to be.

And though at times she was certain
He was the worst mistake of her life,
She had gratitude that after everything,
She had made it out alive.
And now the challenge was to make it
Back home.

Having learned and having lived,
She would know love again,
A deeper greater love that would sustain her broken heart.
Through all that changed and fell apart before her eyes,
It was the greatest thing
She could have learned from this.

cliché

This book was nothing but a collection words and book titles already written. It had no insight.
