    From time to time as a Book Reviewer I love to read something other than the genres I normally would read, from children’s books to steamy erotic stories; and I’ve found reading poetry fills that desire quite well. Poetry is able to communicate things such as feeling in a manner like no other form of literature can. Poetry comes from deep down inside its writer’s inner being which can’t really be done any other way. Poetry usually paints a certain imagery which is different to each individual re From time to time as a Book Reviewer I love to read something other than the genres I normally would read, from children’s books to steamy erotic stories; and I’ve found reading poetry fills that desire quite well. Poetry is able to communicate things such as feeling in a manner like no other form of literature can. Poetry comes from deep down inside its writer’s inner being which can’t really be done any other way. Poetry usually paints a certain imagery which is different to each individual reading it. So while no matter what an individual gets from reading a poem is correct as far as that individual is concerned; the question that arise here is whether or not this is what the writer of the poem wanted their readers to have after reading it. Everyone who has ever read a poem and enjoyed it has wondered what had been going on in the poet’s mind when they wrote it. Haven’t you? Unfortunately this tidbit of information has always remained a mystery as far as I know; which is why I loved reading this book of poems by Paul Travis. In his book of poems Paul Travis has not only lifted the veil of mystery behind the writing of each poem, he has allowed his readers into his intimate and personal life. So in return for so aptly sharing his life with those who read this book, I’m giving it 5 STARS. I read this book via a KINDLE unlimited download on Amazon-US.

    This book was a quick read, but a good one. It is poetic from start to finish. The book is uniquely designed. In Chapter One Paul Travis expresses his hope to "teach you something about life" and that "you'll be filled with joy as you read, mixed with peace of mind." This is something he accomplishes as this book is filled with life lessons. And I can say that personally I was filled with peace of mind while reading. An overall good read that would be especially great for young adult readers who This book was a quick read, but a good one. It is poetic from start to finish. The book is uniquely designed.

This is something he accomplishes as this book is filled with life lessons. And I can say that personally I was filled with peace of mind while reading. An overall good read that would be especially great for young adult readers who may still be learning who they and and learning to embrace their true selves. Paul Travis is an inspiration. I'm lucky to have been chosen to receive a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads.

    Not wanting to knock another poet or artist I won't get into too much detail but the poems weren't for my taste. I very much enjoyed the writings about the poems and found them much more touching and poetic. The blood on the page seemed to spill after the poem and those musings felt more real to me. Glad to have more people sharing themselves through artistic words. Not wanting to knock another poet or artist I won't get into too much detail but the poems weren't for my taste.

    I hope this review isn’t too critical and I apologize in advance for any harsh words, as I realize that the writer appears to be a younger person (possibly still a teenager?) and it’s abundantly clear that this collection was his first attempt at poetry. A few pertinent examples of the elementary school-level limericks featured in the poem entitled “Exposed”… “She’ll always be a petty bitch, I scratched away like an itch.” “No, not I, will sit and cry. I’ll reach the sky.” “Hope they learned their I hope this review isn’t too critical and I apologize in advance for any harsh words, as I realize that the writer appears to be a younger person (possibly still a teenager?) and it’s abundantly clear that this collection was his first attempt at poetry. A few pertinent examples of the elementary school-level limericks featured in the poem entitled “Exposed”… “She’ll always be a petty bitch, I scratched away like an itch.” “No, not I, will sit and cry. I’ll reach the sky.” “Hope they learned their lesson, if not, they need to take a good look!” “I arrived, can’t be stopped, reaching the top.” “You don’t want to miss my rise like a Phoenix, supplied by the power of Venus.” Utilizing profanity (“bitch”) is simply not a respectable practice in literature. Phoenix and Venus don’t actually rhyme. Certain generic words do happen to rhyme; however, they are tremendously novice (stop/top, cry/sky, etc) in nature. From the poem, “Always Remain”… “I was young, powerful and strong. Never was I wrong.” “I told them pretending wasn’t me. A promising future, but that wasn’t me.” “This is my story, I choose who I want to be. He wouldn’t listen to me.” “I stood my ground, found my lost soul. I turned around, blew a kiss.” Uninteresting, self-absorbed foolishness laden with generic metaphors/platitudes (“stand your ground,” “found my lost soul,” etc) chronicling some tedious tale of theater-related personal distress on his part. When I read poetry, I’m not very interested commonplace linguistics, an author who ceaselessly boasts about himself, or acts in an arrogant fashion…he accomplished all three with this piece. I could do a similar “review” of all 25 poems, but I you get the idea. What bothered me most is the writer seems fanatically obsessed with his own “stardom,” “personal success” and “proving doubters wrong,” but seems to have little interest in actually expressing himself through the art of poetry. He delves into relationships (“Found a Man,” “Kiss Me So”), but those tacky attempts at romance seem equally contrived. My only conclusion is that this writer is the William Hung of poetry. I purchased this collection on Amazon (I’m always looking for up-and-coming poetry books and his was rated #1) and after finally getting around to reading this immature drivel, was consequently disappointed. I’m giving this 1 star, because it takes a plethora of courage to produce something so outrageously trite and affix one’s name to the title. Again, sorry to so derogatory…
