Review for I AM (Poetry in Motion)

Review Notice
I am especially proud of this review because my first five star review for a book for females came from a male. : )   -KD

I Am: Poetry In Motion  Rating: 5.0 stars

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite

“Our chance doesn’t end until we are dead,” writes K.D. Rose in her book of poetry, I Am (Poetry in Motion). This is a collection of poems that challenges the thought processes and feelings of women and urges them to rise up and be who they are. It inspires women to go against the grain, if the grain isn’t what makes them happy. Women are encouraged to look at their inner beauty and strive to be stronger at presenting that inner strength. This book is a calling to not only find power together with other women, but to find individual strength as well and hold fast to it. Included with short, but profound lines of poetry are graphic images that depict the stronger side and the more beautiful side of women. “It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” Profound advice and encouragement like this is found throughout I Am (Poetry in Motion).

Though I’m a man and the book was written for women, I still found the clean, honest advice to be strong and stand firm in my individuality both encouraging and inspiring. Within the lines of verse, there is sound advice for women at any stage in life to not knuckle under to the pressures of the world. K.D. Rose would advise her sisters to not conform in order to be comfortable, but to become what they are meant to become. Strong women who have stood up and done what needed doing have been the true blessing of history. It is their spirit of stepping forward and using their strengths and special talents that is celebrated and furthermore encouraged. Fresh, creative, profound and inspiring; I Am (Poetry in Motion) is a clear voice calling women to be what they are and not what others want them to be.
