Intimate, curiously emotional, and psychologically exciting, Poetically Unapologetic by Sophia King is a collection that features gems that readers will adore. It’s not a book for readers who are looking for erudite verses, but those who have learned to listen with the heart, to see with the inner gaze, to allow life to speak to them. The ability to feel, to be aware, and to observe seems to be a powerful quality that comes across beautifully in Sophia King’s poetry and she makes it come across to readers in a free style that combines narration with evocative lines to offer delightful and, sometimes, painful images.
This collection features random poems that have one thing in common: they reflect the author’s state of mind, a recollection of memories and emotions that many readers will identify with. Themes of love and fear, pain and rejection, nature and humanity, and many others are beautifully developed in the poems. From the first poem, the reader already hears someone crying to be heard, like a weaned child struggling to reconnect with the one thing that gave it life. It’s a cry to be heard: “Can anybody out there hear me?/ I don’t want you to cheer me, / I just need for you to feel me.” I have read many poems but rarely do I read work from a poet who bares her soul for readers to touch. The honest tone in Poetically Unapologetic makes the poems irresistible and allows readers to feel an echo of the poet’s voice in their own humanity.
