This is often a contemplative or observational collection most of which is centered around mental health themes involving depressive and addictive behavioral issues : "Addiction" - "I'm kicking this habit or am I?" - "Money controlling you!" - "Beat your addiction". These poems involve situations that really stood out.
Included were a few poems about "Current Affairs" that involved global politics.
"Depressive Works" was the title/theme that opened the book. Readers may relate to the heartbreak of losing a parent, Lister's father apparently suffered a massive stroke and never regained consciousness passing away at the hospital: "I never got to say goodbye" - Lister writes of dealing with depression with: "Tiresome Life" - "Suicidal Swill". Grief and mourning is cloaked a deep enveloping sadness with the next loss of his son, born prematurely: "His name is Jared" happened six years prior.
Lister's free verse poems of Love were centered around discovery, exploration, dreams and desire, the happiness of new love, and the need to write a poem for the new love. The love themed poetry continued into "Erotica" centering around desire, lust, pleasure and fantasy life. "A fulfilling massage" tells the story of a visit to a massage parlor.
Overall, this collection was fairly good, a Title Page and Table of Contests weren't included, and the free verse punctuation wasn't easy to follow. The large number of poems boost the appeal of the book. With thanks to the author for DDC for the purpose of review. 3.5* GOOD.
I have always enjoyed poetry that rhymes... it is fun and refreshingly lighthearted as this collection was... truly 'rhyming poetry to change your day!'
Some of it spoke to me and some was rubbish for me.
I think it was the writing style and the way words didn’t fit for me.
I know it’s all about different tastes and this was so so for me.
Really though, it felt honest, authentic, real, direct, and all of those synonym's synonyms. I was looking for some good poetry to read when I was laying in bed this morning, and I found exactly that.

The author is, of course, at liberty to write whatever he or she wants. As I said, I liked some of the contents but for me, it's not 'Rhyming Poetry'.
