    I've been looking for a poetry collection that is dedicated to mental health. It's easy to find poetry about love and grief but I haven't come across anything solely dedicated to something like depression and mental health.

    This collection is very raw and sometimes painful to read. I have struggled with depression for a large part of my life and felt like the collection was very relatable. I love that the poems are printed on black paper and that some of the words are grey instead of white to cr

    I've been looking for a poetry collection that is dedicated to mental health. It's easy to find poetry about love and grief but I haven't come across anything solely dedicated to something like depression and mental health.

    This collection is very raw and sometimes painful to read. I have struggled with depression for a large part of my life and felt like the collection was very relatable. I love that the poems are printed on black paper and that some of the words are grey instead of white to create a "poem within a poem."

    Overall, I really enjoyed this collection and hope this poet gets more recognition!

    This book was sometimes hard to read it was dark and raw I would recommend this book was good poetry book.

    It wasn't heartfelt. It was heartless. And not the good kind of heartless either.

    This wasn't the worst book of poems I've ever read. I wanted it to be amazing but it was typical. The rhymes were simple and the message was muddled by the simplicity of the rhyme scheme. Still, it was entertaining to read.

    I wanted to give this book 2 (2.5 stars) because of the way the book is. The paged are all black, mostly. There's like a cm on the bottom of the pages that isn't dyed black and it just throws the whole book off. lol. ugh It'll bug me till the day I die.

    I thought it would be a really cool to read a poetry collection dedicated to mental health. To tell the truth, I saw the words "breaking point" and was sold. But what the synopsis sold me isn't what it gave me. The poems felt juvenile and unoriginal.

    First, let's start off with the poem within a poem format. That "second poem" never actually felt like a second poem, but more like an additional or final line of the poem that wasn't actually needed. This wouldn't be too, too annoying if the book di

    I thought it would be a really cool to read a poetry collection dedicated to mental health. To tell the truth, I saw the words "breaking point" and was sold. But what the synopsis sold me isn't what it gave me. The poems felt juvenile and unoriginal.

    First, let's start off with the poem within a poem format. That "second poem" never actually felt like a second poem, but more like an additional or final line of the poem that wasn't actually needed. This wouldn't be too, too annoying if the book didn't lead off with explaining that this was a style of poem Vega created. It was even called "Vivid." Looking highlighting words within a text to create another text isn't exactly new. If you've taken a creative writing 101 course, joined a writing club, or were just freaking bored, you're probably done this before. Making a poem within your own poem doesn't actually change the fact it's been done before.

    And while on the topic of things the author claimed to have created but did not actually create… We’re also told at the beginning of the book that there are drawings by the author included. But those aren’t drawings. They look like stock photos with a filter overlay. I even got a second opinion from someone with a degree in art, just to make sure I wasn’t trashing someone’s art for no good reason. We’re both fairly sure these aren’t actual drawings.

    You know what. Here’s where I would go into an analysis of the poetry, which isn’t all that great either. But I’m actually going to stop. As a poetry collection, whether or not the poetry is good should be the main focus of the review. But even if I thought the poetry was amazing, I wouldn’t recommend spending money on this book. Before we even get to the poetry, the author tells us two lies. The first one could almost be overlooked with a good roll of the eyes. But the second lie almost is crossing the line, especially for an artist. Stock photos and filters aren’t really the ultimate evil. The problem isn’t that they were stock photos and filters; it’s that the author claimed they were something more than that. By stating the drawings were theirs, the author was misleading the reader. And that’s just not cool. It already challenges the author's integrity.

    The book is pretty cheap, and yet still not worth the money.
