A nice poetic experience about life and its many teachings + learnings. If you enjoy poetry which teaches you life lessons, motivates you and leaves you with many positive after thoughts, this book is for you.

What I liked about the book:
—> Touches almost every human emotional aspect.
—> Its 100% relatability.
—> The language is crisp and fluid.
—> My favourite ones out of this tiny collection were ‘Art has an appeal’, ‘Accept me again’, ‘Shed the load’ and ‘Anxiety-that’s how it feels like’.

What I did not like about the book:
—> The middle section of the book felt more like blogs or tiny write ups rather than poems.
—> The strict rhyming scheme in all the poems might have helped add a little more variety to the kind of poems.

Quotable quotes:
—> What are we if not some stories?
Those stories which create desire,
Stories which burn like fire.
—> The good and the bad has to blend,
It’s all about the yin and yang at the end.
—> Now I know why art has this appeal,
Because it lets the layers of pain freely peel.
Art makes it look like a strength,
No matter the artist confesses at what length.
—> Even if you won’t be able to mend the wrong,
Remember, there is victory in being strong.
—> Taking my decision is my right,
Even if they don’t turn out right.
It’s ok if I make a mistake.
As at times, things require a different take.
—> How are you supposed to know what is in middle of the story right from the first chapter?
—> You are the protagonist of your life.
—> I am old school,
For me the 90s music is still so cool.
I believe in the simplicity of holding hands,
To be with each other as we make life’s plans.
