“In the tradition of Nayyirah Waheed and Warsan Shire, Upile Chisala’s debut is a collection of moving poetry that touches on subjects such as race and gender. Chisala’s writing is raw emotion, she has very obviously poured her heart and soul in to this collection and reading it was a pleasure. I strongly recommend this book to those who enjoy poetry and are fans of poets such as Nayyirah Waheed and Warsan Shire.” By Ari Tillett
“I loved all the water, war, softness, and magic imagery used. I felt myself bleeding into the words and almost gasped because her strength is reflected in myself. I will treasure so many quotes in this poetry book on what it means to be a dark-skinned African woman and be capable of more love than the world throws at you.” By Amazon Customer
