Overview

We each are but a grain of sand on a beach, a cog in a great time piece. We are surrounded, yet solitary, wanting to be part of the whole while aching to be individual. We search for those special connections, reaching out with hope but holding back with trepidation, our hearts wanting one thing when our minds are saying something different.

Overview

We each are but a grain of sand on a beach, a cog in a great time piece. We are surrounded, yet solitary, wanting to be part of the whole while aching to be individual. We search for those special connections, reaching out with hope but holding back with trepidation, our hearts wanting one thing when our minds are saying something different. Yet within this battle, despite the scars, we somehow manage to find love, hope, companionship, and purpose, ultimately without surrendering our ability to find that necessary peace within ourselves. We Walk Alone examines the journeys we take in our heads. It's about the struggle to connect with people and the world around us.

Editorial Reviews

Goodreads - Mariah Jimenez
I was given a PDF copy to read this morning.
I would just like to say, first off, I love sharing the same first name with a wonderful person. (A bit on the side, haha.)
Anyways...
My review is nothing but greatness. I've never read poems such as these. They remind me of Shel Silverstein's works. So simple, yet so complex.
The words ring in your ears as you read through.
I will definitely buy myself a copy once it is released.
Goodreads - Kathryn Dechairo
I received an ARC PDF copy in exchange for an honest review.

In her debut book of poetry Mariah explores how even in all our connectedness there is still a part of us that walks alone. I love the use of imagery in her poems with Conversations In The Rain, Linger, We Walk Alone, Dandelion Daydreams, Broken Toys, The Echo Remains and One Night being particular favorites. Broken Toys reminded me so much of my brother and brought back childhood memories for me.

An enjoyable read
Goodreads - Amy Carlson
I was fortunate to be given a pre-release copy of this collection. I should preface this review by admitting that I am generally not a fan of poetry. It tends to go over my head (the same way physic does). However, I found this book to be excellent... several of the poems 'spoke' to me on a very personal level. I found myself smiling through some poems, and tearing up through others... I was deeply moved.

I highly recommend adding this book to your collection, and personally am looking
