Evens and Beginnings is a fantastic collection of spellbinding poetry written in a pure, occasionally harsh, raw, but fascinating writing style that intriguingly addresses many profound thoughts that represent life to the fullest. True love: is it genuine or simply an illusion? Why might later hate, suffering, conflict, and rejection take the place of the love promise "until death do us part"? Is there really a need for you to worry about whether your family or children will be all right if you pass away? Do you need to consider whether you made others happy while alive? If not, is there any justification for regrets? Remo Perini begins by explaining why he wrote these poems and to whom he dedicated this collection. Remo introduces you to his mother at this point, and you will learn about a strong-willed, tough woman whose love for children and enthusiasm will make you smile and warm your heart. She's blind at ninety, but she wants to drive a car one of these fine days, and she's quick to make a joke.
"Tomorrow's Yesterday" was my favorite poem from the collection. Through this poem, the author encourages us to take risks that will lead to a better tomorrow. I appreciated the scene in which Remo Perini encouraged us to throw caution to the wind, be brave, and take a chance. This is the only way to realize your dream and fulfill your quest. "Till Death Do Us Part" was my second favorite poem. In this poem, Remo shares insightful knowledge of the marital institution. He advises couples to be cautious about who they choose as their spouse. At this point, Remo encourages spouses to work together to achieve the goals they both aspire to. In this poem, I think the author did an outstanding job demonstrating how tired love can harm any relationship. I liked how the author organized his work. He included a background that was unique to each poem. This feature elicited emotion and expanded my knowledge of what was going on. There was nothing about Evens and Beginnings that I disliked. Remo's verses touched me deeply, and I hope they do the same for you. Enjoy!
