A well-written and thoroughly enjoyable collection of emotive poetry. Kerry's words are honest and relatable to most. Each poem flows with ease, telling a short story. I loved the internal rhyme and the suspense of 'Always Running' and 'Panic'. Furthermore, the dark illustrations alongside the words speak volumes.

               Excellent book

Excellent debut poetry. When reading I was totally immersed in the verses, and could relate to the verses especially the one titled "Panic". My thanks to the author Kerry and look forward to your next book of poetry.

            Loved it!

This chapbook is the very reason poets should continue to produce them. The poetry here is both emotional and poignant in some places. It alludes to relationships in several pieces- with the author deciphering the thoughts or interpreting the actions of another character.
This is the kind of poetry that's like a mirror - in that you're sure to see yourself between these well-penned lines.
More than anything, this collection showed how the battlefields of our lives are our minds...where defeating or winning thoughts lie. I really enjoyed this!
