    Beautiful written poetry I just adored this book of poems. Everything about Rex's writing sat right there in the back of my mind and heart. Beautiful written poetry I just adored this book of poems. Everything about Rex's writing sat right there in the back of my mind and heart.

    Candid A very vivid picture is painted through the author’s words here. I loved the clear aspect of bipolar instances, whether medicated or not. A lovely and relatable book.

    A beautiful, short book of poems. Rex Emerson Jackson melds words together in a lovely way, and his poetry is touching in both a comforting and oddly unsettling way. It's the kind of poetry that you can easily relate to, but also prods the mind and gets you thinking. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in poetry and/or mental health.

    3.5 stars. Pretty good year is poetry about living with bipolar disorder as known as manic depressive disorder. I loved seeing an honest tale of the highs and lows and struggle to find middle ground. The beginning was great with fast paced poems of the highs and beautiful sorrowful poems of the lows. Around the half way point the poems felt repetitive which is something that really turns me off a poetry collection. I began losing interest which I felt badly about. What would have saved this colle 3.5 stars. Pretty good year is poetry about living with bipolar disorder as known as manic depressive disorder.

Around the half way point the poems felt repetitive which is something that really turns me off a poetry collection. I began losing interest which I felt badly about. What would have saved this collection for me is if it was kept a bit shorter. Overall I have the utmost respect for anymore who writes openly about their truths. I still recommend this book to anyone who is struggling it is good to know that you are not alone.

    I got this book for free on Amazon Kindle. It was an excellent read, especially for being free. Being someone who struggles with bi-polar, I could understand a lot of the poems and stuff that Jackson talked about in his poetry. Extremely relate-able. Will definitely re-read again and again and again.
