Poems for a World Gone to Shit
It's World Poetry Day, and I couldn't recommend a poetry book I love more than this one. Poems For A World Gone To Shit is an anthology collection of poetry with poems for every mood. Each of the five sections is a curated collection of poetry written by the greatest poets in the world, from Philip Larkin to Anne Bronte. There are poems for every emotion, for when you feel upset or sad, for when you feel like you're struggling and you need hope. As it says in the introduction, "these poems are about remembering to keep looking up at the stars, whatever shit life is throwing at you".
It's a beautiful book, and you can see the love and care with which each piece has been selected. On days when I feel tired or weary, I pick up this book and it soothes me. It's a book that has been constantly at my side. And what makes it even more personal for me, is that it's a birthday gift I received from my family (@the_archness, @hollowmaniac & @sid_sketches_ ).
What more could a poetry lover want? ❤️💕 trrreads rating: 10/10
