"Wrapped Up in Life with Omniscient Eyes" by Sandra Proto is a collection of poetry based on the life experiences and observations through the eyes of the author. The first poem of the book is entitled "Blackberry Beauty", which uses metaphorical prose to emphasize the fact that beauty is found deep within and although others may see beauty as a likeness based on appearance, it is the individual who perceives their own beauty. "Blackberry Beauty" is about how the author describes the complexion of her skin tone which others may see as a negative flaw. But the author remarks that it is her mind that she can empower with the positive force of her beauty and adds that she can share the beauty of herself with others.
I enjoyed reading this book of poetry collection. The author writes about a variety of experiences that include subjects such as self love, love, friendship, death and social consciousness through her life from puberty through adulthood. I was impressed how well the author has written, leaving the reader with a memory of the relation to the different subjects that are deal with in poetry and leave them with a lot of food for their imagination. I will recommend this book for readers who are looking at how beauty is measured through appearance only. This is a good book to read from the beginning to the end for all those who may be interested in taking that journey through life with self evaluation and following whatever path it leads to.
