Unconditional: Just Me and My Scattered Thoughts, a book of poetry by T. Renee, delves into controversial issues in a frank and unflinching manner, turning pain into beauty, all the while hoping to engage the reader with an open mind and willing heart. Renee invites the reader on a journey through the past, present, and to a hopefully more unified future. There's a certain thread of lyricism throughout Renee's work that demands each page be read aloud as the reader dives into what truly make us human and connects all of us together.

As I was reading Unconditional, I found myself connecting with each poem deeply, and I feel that Renee's passion for each word shows through with each poem. Renee hops between a few different topics in Unconditional, but remembrance and strength seem to be a central theme, as well as honoring all those who came before us and whose sacrifice made us who we are today. It carries a lot of emotional impact. Renee uses a minimalist approach, yet manages to capture the essence of a thought and convey this to the reader without weighing them down in torrents of florid prose. In Unconditional, T. Renee creates a simple collection that is sure to sit with the reader long after the last page is turned. I enjoyed every passage and feel that Unconditional would be a great read for fans of poetry. I expect that T. Renee is a name that will be seen more often in the future.
