This is the second book of poetry written by Just Patty. Patty delves into deepest emotions in her poetry. MY WHISPERINGS is a collection of dark poetry, though some of her poems have a more positive note.
One that struck me as being particularly dark and deeply painful is “PTSD”. The last verse is a good example of the entire poem.
In a sea of unshed tears I shout
I am chocking
Just want to end it
But… I can’t find a way out
“Vengeance” is another of her poems that is very dark as illustrated by the following verse from it. In this poem Just Patty explores revenge.
Ice cold justice got served
In my heart, there’s no compassion
You got what you deserved!
One of my favorites of her poems is “The Warrior” which is more uplifting as Just Patty portrays steadfastness and positive thinking.
Times are hard, life is tough
I know that you think you had enough
Don’t give up, you can still win
Bring out the warrior from within
Though my first choice in poetry is to read uplifting and joyous verse, I enjoyed reading this collection of poetry very much, especially when the poem spoke of redeeming qualities rather than ending just as dark as it began.
