Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotion - Review

Betty Woodrum released her first book of poetry entitled Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotions in on July 16, 2005. Her poetry is clean and simple and extremely honest. There is such a strong theme of the various forms of love that the word 'love' should almost be included in the title!

It is apparent throughout Betty's poetry that friendships mean a great deal to her. The poem about online friends reveals how deeply the Internet is involved in our society's home-life. Betty warns to never let feelings go left unsaid to the important people in our lives and then welcomes readers on a journey through some tough times in her life. Readers will watch Betty let go of the past, witness her learning to live in the moment and feel her suffocation while she battled depression.

Although Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotions could use a little editing, the poetry is well organized and is enjoyable to read. I certainly related to many of her poems, especially the one where she discusses the vulnerable feeling of being invisible and out of control. These are feelings I think many of us share ? and this is what makes Betty's book so special. She helps readers feel like they are not alone.
