If you love to read motivational books, grab a copy of My Dear by Dawn Gregory. Growing up in Freehold, New Jersey, Dawn always felt like a child of the village. Whether listening to the stories told by the town ladies or hearing words of wisdom from her mother and her aunt, she grew up with the necessary tools from childhood on her way to becoming a young adult and later a grown woman. In this book, she draws inspiration from her own life experiences to offer readers some beautifully penned poetic verses to help them on their path to self-discovery. Dawn uses the poetic medium to its fullest extent, using words and phrases to string together verses that not only are mesmerizing to read but also provide some valuable insights that one can use in their everyday life.
My Dear is a book of poetry that will appeal to even non-poetry readers. That's because Dawn Gregory's affirmations and motivational quotes speak the universal language of truth. With her inspiring verses, Dawn delivers some valuable insights on life that give you a lot to think about. One thing I noticed is that the poems don't have titles. Instead, all of them follow a singular narrative infused with themes of childhood innocence, coming of age, and adulthood. The structural experimentation and non-rhythmic verses give an outlook to the poems that feel refreshingly welcome. Overall, I found My Dear to be an inspired piece of work I would happily recommend to poetry lovers as well as to readers who love motivational books.
