"Swinging Sanity" is broken up into five separate sections, each one taking you through that particular phase of her life, survival between sanity and it's other half. My favorite poem (I warn you, it will be hard to choose), is "Just Like a Drop of Water." It has such a deep meaning and yet is so relatable to anyone who reads it.
As the book goes on, Mirza's emotions are clearly shown, as she speaks of Love & Loss, and Day & Night, then ends her verses with Random Reflections. From losing her coffee cup in "Dude! Where Is My Coffee?", or the poem, "Blue" where she is trying to decide if it's better to be a leaf or the ocean, N.F. Mirza carries you along with her through the highs and lows, until you can't help but rally around this woman, and silently encourage her to keep going, and never give up!
"Swinging Sanity" is a book I will read again. And I highly recommend you read it, too. To be able to put yourself out there for the world to see, takes guts. And this book has plenty of it! I look forward to reading more from this wonderful poet.
This is your moment, stick it and shine among the golden sun, and tell dirty Diana(depression) you are not needed.
Awesome, keep it up.
Note: thought-provoking and vivid descriptions!
I like to think of each section (which has a collection of poems) as a short story since they convey a similar raw emotion with each poem. It is as though you are traveling through different emotional journeys with the author.
The poetry is very enthralling and the feelings are so clear, you can almost feel what the author was feeling in that moment.
A nice book and quick read that will take you throughout different facets of how a mind feels, I am sure some of which most, if not all, readers can relate to - if at least part of them by relating to some of the poems in such section. It can also provide insight on how other people in your life may feel, in a poetic way, which can broaden your understanding, especially as it pertains to feelings of loss, grief, anxiety, and the author’s journey throughout her recent life experiences. Many readers will see a glimpse of themselves in the feelings that are portrayed and they can transcend to other situations as well.
It is a good read. Highly recommend.

The work is divided into five parts, each a protective canopy over its subject matter. Beginning with “Screaming Numbness” we are treated to exquisitely painful lyrics about suffering and mental illness.
We press on into the pages of “Love & Loss” as she tells her tales from the world of love. As humans, we are never free from pain. We are allowed moments of beauty as a reprieve between the senseless chaos of the universe.
When the flushes of pain and joy are over we are treated to poems about the “Day and Night“. Her suffering mind remembers these times so vividly, and her fascination of the night sky appeals to fellow insomniac in me.
Life is a dazzling series of confusion and clarity. Mirza’s section, “C’est La Vie” has some hard truths about the world we try to live in. When I read these lines they ignite in me my own fears, wonders, and imagination.
The final section “Random Thoughts,” is just that, and we see the author grappling with the suffering of now, hopefully, one day leading to the freedom of tomorrow. Out of struggle, so will the time of quiet victory, and self-assurance be born. Where those of us with kindness, walk alongside those of difficult persuasions. She closes the collection strong leaving us both elated with hope, and sturdy with solidarity. Please buy this poetry collection, it is too exquisite to remain unread.
If this is your thing, go for it.
If you are expecting poetry, I strongly suggest you look elsewhere.
