As someone who own’s and read(s) all of Drake’s books, I have to say that this is a beautiful collection. Now by all means, this is not my favorite Drake book. It’s not his best, but by no means does that make it a bad book either. I love the fact that he had longer pieces throughout the book.
This collection isn’t quite what I was expecting. The more I weaved my way through the pages, the more I thought he was not only considering his life, but the coming years his daughter will have. And that melted my heart.
I’ve always enjoyed Drake’s words. This book is another great add to his poetry collection, and I will likely pick it up again soon.
Rating: 4 stars!
This is something about self-love—something they don’t teach in school. Something that’s very hard to learn on your own. This is something about putting yourself first because it’s okay to love yourself before anyone else. This is something about doing what’s best for you, no matter what people say, because only you know what you deserve. This is something about being real, being real to who you are and accepting things as they come and change. This is something about your mistakes, about your flaws, and about how beautiful it is to get up and try again. This is something about being you, about using your voice when you’re afraid. About building enough courage when you feel like standing up to something you don’t believe in, something that’s wrong. This is about you, and every day should be about you, and that’s something you should always consider.
