one day i'll be happy: a collection of poems and thoughts to healing


Must read 🏆

One day I'll be happy is a beautiful collection of poems that are wonderfully written and deeply touching.

I don’t often read poetry but lately I have been trying to get out of my comfort zone when it comes to reading. By doing this, I have discovered some amazing authors and their incredible work, one day i'll be happy.: a collection of poems and thoughts to healing by Shalondra Brown, being one of them.


This collection of poems is beautiful and deeply touching. Some felt even a little bit personal to me, almost as if the author was talking directly to me. I was not expecting that, but I loved that. Also, while I don’t know much about writing poetry, the writing in this collection of poems was great! To me, the writing never felt forced, and words weren’t just there to fill a spot in the page. Everything just flowed smoothly. I will say that I did like some poems more than others, but that is completely normal because as I mentioned earlier, some just woke up feelings in me, both positive and negative, and while that was unexpected, I didn’t mind.


one day i'll be happy.: a collection of poems and thoughts to healing by Shalondra Brown is a book that I highly recommend. This is a must read if you like poetry and if you don’t know much about poetry like me, this might be a good place to start. This book certainly opened my eyes to a genre that I never really paid any attention to and now I can’t wait to explore for of it. Also, I don’t know if the author of this book, Shalondra Brown, is planning on publishing other works in the genre or in any other genre, but she is someone I will keep in my radar because I would love to read more of her work in the future.

I love reading and sharing my thoughts with others to encourage them to read something they might not know existed or perhaps had some misconceptions about the work. I also love discovering the hidden gems of the literary world.

i still love you, even if it hurts.
