Personal Poetic Perspectives
About the Book
Personal Poetic Perspectives presents a compilation of poems analyzing a variety of topics, including family, addiction, sexual abuse, and Black history. Each poem is presented in a rhythmic format that inspires you to examine your personal opinions. Taking both humorous and serious approaches, these verses seek to spur you to reflect on your past, present, and future and prompt you to question your feelings regarding personal, social, and current events. Some of the poems depict author Montrelle Jackson-Sinegar’s personal experiences, while others explore the lives and stories of other individuals—and all of them invite you to think carefully about life and your place in it. Appealing to a broad audience, this collection of poetry considers a wide range of subjects and perspectives, opening the door for reflection and self-examination. “Personal Poetic Perspectives is an informative read that puts a spin on poetry by adding taboo counseling components, which draws in the novice and experienced alike.” —Natasha L. Ballard, LPC “I really enjoyed Montrelle Sinegar’s book. Her poetry is both humorous and serious. Thus, it motivates individuals to think and laugh at the same time.” —Timothy Smith, Dean of Workforce Development and CTE, Arizona Western College
