I really hate being so judgmental about poetry because I’m sure this really means something to the poet, but it’s so disheartening to read poetry like this that has no understanding or appreciation of form or rhythm. Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously. Some of these poems are quite lovely, and I appreciate the poem about The Keepers, as my own family has suffered sexual abuse from the Catholic Church, but rather than rising above such stereotypes she embraces them, covering her contempt for another culture by claiming discrimination against her own.

I feel that if this were more condensed, without the filler tumblr-esque poetry, it would be a true gem.

The thing is that those poems weren’t that great and the solipsistic emotional ones were her mediocre best. There were some stanzas and lines that were just not very good and read more like a tumblr rant than a thought-out piece of work. I cannot rate someone's life experiences, but I can rate their poetic language, arrangement, sensitivity, since all of them are publicly open. She’s also a pop culture fiend, casually dropping references to Heathers, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter in amongst verses dealing with abortion, Islamophobia, and abuse.mothers’ is particularly powerful ( when i look in the mirror, sometimes i see them, looking back, eyes droopy, weary from the weight of womanhood, tired of the throes of masculinity, patriarchy, white supremacy, they mourn it too. It is also a collection that I have gifted because of how beautifully it is written and put together. In this truly stunning guided journal, Róisín addresses ableism, thin privilege, fatphobia, white privilege, and more, using empowering quotes and prompts to encourage you to appreciate the changes your body has gone through, explore beauty standards and ideals, reinforce self-confidence, and, ultimately, become the best version of yourself.

In other reviews I have seen curiosity about essays and nonfiction and I would echo these sentiments, hoping to see further exploration of writing styles. This is just such a bold and brilliant collection, that explores so much and the writing flows really well too.I would highly recommend this collection to any fans of poetry , or just if you want a collection as a starting point i would recommend this one too. A poetry compilation recounting a woman's journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance, confusion to clarity, and bitterness to forgiveness.
