Overcast by Michael Froilan is a collection of poems covering several topics. The theme of self-love and acceptance is prevalent throughout the book. Society and people around us are always trying to make us fit in, but the author emphasizes the power of being self-aware. We all make mistakes and get depressed. The poems talk about these topics as well. They let us know that we are not alone and that the trials and tribulations we pass through are there to make us stronger. The author reminds the reader of a High Being watching over us, and that all will be well in the end.
These poems will arouse your emotions and make you think about life, love, relationships, and beliefs. I loved the simplicity of the words used, which does not in any way detract from the impact of their messages. The poems flow perfectly into the next chapter and make the collection the author's emotional life story. The author paints beautiful scenery with each poem. The imagery he uses is impeccable and makes you think you are there, sharing all his emotions with him. This is a great writing skill. The author showed vulnerability in expressing his emotions, and I applaud him for this wonderful work. Depression is a sensitive topic to tackle and present, but Michael Froilan offered his experiences and thoughts on the matter gracefully. I recommend this book to people who love reading poetry that evokes their feelings. I would also recommend Overcast to people who are going through tough times and need guidance.
