About this deal

Certains des poèmes étaient hyper poignants et émouvants, on ressent sa rage, sa haine, sa fierté, son amour. To be completely honest, so far I find myself finding bits and pieces of her works that are really nice; complimentary in a way. The illustrations also add a nice touch and bring depth to certain themes discussed in the poetry collection.

The author speaks about her own experiences, and I feel I have no right to say if they deserve a three, four, five, star rating. It’s a beautiful book full of brilliantly written poems that speak volumes to both your heart and soul.

The greatest scam is us believing that you’re better than us, when you stole all that we were and sold it back, convincing us of our inferiority, spitting on our graves. There were some stanzas and lines that were just not very good and read more like a tumblr rant than a thought-out piece of work.

From ‘time means everything’ ( No therapy for him, years of body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, feelings of disgust, self-loathing, tears and hysteria every time I see a goddam fucking child that could’ve been ours) to ‘je ne suis pas folle’ ( why is it that as women we have to validate our stories? In these short and potent stanzas she makes it clear that while she's been able to lay down the ghosts that have haunted her own self-worth, loving herself back to health after the mental and physical exhaustion of weathering constant aggressions is a long and continuous process. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). I’m being a bit demeaning in the first sentence since many poems are not like that, and she talks a lot about her complicated identity and relationship with colonialism.
