Between the Lines There Lies a Story of Me: The Lost and Found Hope Volume One is a collection of poetic works penned by author R. S. Rain. Focusing on emotive and inspirational themes, this work contains extended works with lyrical narratives and some experiences that are very personal to the author. Dealing with themes such as depression and self-realization, the collection is sure to take readers on a journey through its many challenges, dark experiences, and trials, but also the messages of hope and strength that are found along the way. What results is a truly inspirational volume that teaches us all to keep fighting, no matter what.
Poetry volumes often have a healing element, for both the writer and the reader, and author R. S. Rain certainly shares the experience with us through this unique first volume of works. I enjoyed the fact that many of these works have their own story and internal narrative, which makes you feel like you are stepping into a fully realized moment in someone’s life rather than just a disconnected emotion. Today Is Not Tomorrow was a particular favorite of mine, and it is a great exemplar of the collection overall, as it discusses many different kinds of monsters which we face, but also delivers a message to keep fighting and find the hope renewed in whatever the next day brings. Overall, I would definitely recommend Between the Lines There Lies a Story of Me for readers seeking heartfelt and accomplished lyrical poetry with true heart and soul.
