Walk With Wings by Tene Edwards is a poetry collection split into five chapters: Monsoon Love, Winter Sorrow, Autumn Grace, Spring Resilient, and Summer Freedom. In short, poignant verses, Tene’s poems are a compilation of reflections on her experiences, thoughts, and feelings through love, loss, pain, healing and resilience.The collection takes you through the life story of the author while offering advice, notes, and affirmations, which were written to empower the author during difficult times. Walk With Wings tells the story of Tene falling in love, making bad decisions, learning from her mistakes, and discovering how to love her life and herself.
I found these poems very relatable and emotional. The way Edwards reflects on relationships, heartbreak, and womanhood reminded me of musings from my own journals.
I kept wishing some of the poetry reached greater emotional depths; several short poems felt more like inspirational quotes that skimmed the surface of the feelings the words were meant to evoke. However, I found myself uplifted and inspired by the time I reached the end of this collection.
Thank you to the author for the gifted review copy.
