Review:

Jennae Cecilia’s poems are fairly basic.  I didn’t find them to contain a high level of artistry, which is something that I do look for in poetry.  Bright Minds Empty Souls ended up being more a collection of thoughts and quotes than a collection of poetry, and while some of the poems were interesting, I didn’t find many of them to be memorable.  One example of a poem that I felt was just more of a statement is as follows:

Badass

I wanted to be a badass because you said

you liked a badass.

The writing comes off a bit flat, and some of the poems seem to be superficial and don’t dig down deeper enough, which is what poetry needs to do.

That being said, Cecilia’s thoughts and ideas are promising, and if she were to study poetry and technique a bit more I believe that she could be widely successful.  Her thoughts just need to be expanded on and evolved a bit more in order to be groundbreaking and artistic.
