let yourself come home."
Actual rating is 4.5 - some of the pieces/words got a bit repetitive.
So, I think I read this book at just the right moment; I'm not usually a fan of uplifting, inspirational, flowery poetry. I'm mostly a dark and twisty (Meredith Grey-esque) person. BUT, for whatever reason, I adored this. And now I really wish I'd taken Spanish in high school instead of French. Gaby Comprés is truly a young talent that I'm eager to watch.
My favorites from this collection were "my Caribbean sea", "your laughter // Rafa and Isa's song", and "gold // para Lulu"
There is something to connect with on the each page and I don’t understand how this isn’t a best seller.
As someone who struggles with depression, I found true hope with each line I read and felt such a connection with Gaby. I hope that others find the light they are looking for in the beauty of this book.
