Review:

Soul Cry is a heartbreaking poetry anthology that explores the pain and trials of the human existence.  The poems are raw and almost feel like diary entries when reading them.  It is clear their Xavier J. Frazer put their heart and soul into these poems, and I found my heart breaking as I read along.

The most beautiful aspect of Frazer’s poems is that they don’t tend to follow a certain design, and that they are raw forms of emotion put onto paper.  Each poem was different but based on the same theme of bittersweet feelings and pain that tend to be the underlying condition of the human experience.

Even though I felt that some of the poems didn’t flow well do to the free form structure, I enjoyed them because they weren’t altered and portrayed a form of emotion that isn’t often used in modern poetry.  Frazer’s collection will resonate with anyone needing to find comfort through literature, and I am sure that these poems will save lives.
