Brown's pen touches upon various subjects: God, the Genesis, marriage, fear, happiness, love, inspiration, writer's block, and the daily tribulations and insecurities of writers, just to name a few. Some poems break the general tone and are more serious, such as the one titled, "So this is Love?"
I've gotten used to broken things,
Even now to hear rage slice through
portrays a semblance of normalcy.
The brunt of your fist pelting my spine
is the only fixture in this home.
And you say this is love?
Sorry does not undo the scars
perverting my features,
will not restore fractured limbs.
Some of Brown's lines are beautiful and vibrant, such as these ones from "England:"
...I am standing on a Manchester bridge
feeding birds with crumbs of desperation,
giving them portions of my worries.
What they don't eat is packed away and
stored like lunch meat in the marrow of
The author also includes several short essays among the poems, thus creating a sense of variety with her prose. Subjects such as what is your purpose in life, planning and preparing for change, living your dream, procrastination, and overcoming the author's blues come alive under this author's pen. If you enjoy poetry or have a friend or family member who does, I recommend you grab a copy of this uplifting collection.
I also liked that I never felt "out of the loop" when reading these poems. I had no trouble following the language or understanding the symbolism being used, which can sometimes be a problem with the poets I have read previously.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys poetry.
Author: Nadia Brown
There are many inspirational poems within the pages of this book. The author shares her thoughts, feelings and understanding that life has specific hold and purpose for all of us. Without defining why we are here and what are goals and purposes are it's like walking in the shadow of another person and living their dreams not your own. The serenity and tranquility of the poems as you read them will create a feeling of warmth and calm as you sit back in front of a warm fire, in a cozy chair or in your own bed reading them together with someone special or by yourself. As you read each poem and the final three articles you will learn a lot about the author but even more about yourself as you take another journey into the life and thoughts of this outstanding poet in her book titled " Becoming: The Life and Musings of A Girl Poet," by Nadia Brown. The collection is replete in thoughts, ideas, and feelings that will help you look within yourself or see your reflection in a mirror clearer minus the distortions and hopefully learn how to use your own intelligence and wisdom to reach your goals and purpose in life.
There are several poems that I will showcase and refer to the articles at the end. A man walks into your line of vision and you can't help but notice him. He is tall, handsome and exudes confidence and definitely, just from his appearance alone and manner makes you feel secure in his presence. " What Pleases Me," is the first poem that I am spotlighting which most women can identify. Walking into a crowded room, smoky bar, a restaurant or down a crowded street as you spot this man whose name is still unknown to you and who appears as if the heavens open up and he enters your mind, your heart and space.Read more ›
