Inspirational: A Book of Poems by Brittiney Sweeney is an uplifting collection of poems that revolve around the theme of inspiration. The poems help readers look at the different types of inspiration that exist in everyone's daily lives and how it can come from both the good and bad things that happen in one's life. The rhyming poems are lyrical and cover varied relevant emotions along with the other poems in the collection. Every poem tells readers how to look for inspiration in their daily lives and look at happenings in their respective lives with a positive perspective. All sections in the collection reveal some profound thought.

In 'Change,' we see the poet's wish to effect a big change so that it crumbles everything that exists on Earth, while the poem 'Silence'creeps into readers slowly but ends in a good way by telling readers how to get rid of it. The poems make readers more aware of inspiration and its origins and how easy it is to find inspiration daily. The poet covers almost all the relevant topics and emotions that dominate us in our daily lives. 'Block' also ends on a positive note of how the poet refuses to get caught up in writer's block. Many poems in the collection reveal the dark side of human lives and the negative attitude of people who tend to ridicule and bully others. The poet also experiments with different ways of writing from minimalist to prose to wordy, which makes it an engaging read.
