    Different perspectives

    This book contains awesome poetry. The authors in this book are raw. The poems are straight forward, and very realistic to life. There is a poem in this book for everyone. No matter what is going on in your life or what race you are, there is a poem that you can relate too. These poets do not try to hide anything about life, and help you understand different peoples perspectives. All in all this is a good book if you are intersted in poetry at all, and i would recomend it to to almost anyone.

    Meritricious writing for these incognito giants of the logos....

    These poets are certainly polyfaceted... It seems that the cosmic cereal of consciousness, picks no favorites... These poets/ muses of God, usher in a spicy and precious format for the dreamer/ the super imaginative... I truely enjoy, the lexicon and the sincerity of their synthax.... Myriads of cheers, to the soul of the planet: the puertorican poeta..... Dante josef raphael......

    This book is a piece of everyone

    This book is one of the best poetry books I have ever read. The writers are all very talented and use words in a way that will inflict emotion upon the reader. This book is also excellent for forensic tournaments, like for poetry readings. That is how I first discovered this book. A girl read a poem called '1990' and it was AWESOME!!! I searched for the book and finally found it. I bought it about two years ago and it's still my favorite book.
