The Last Dandelion by Beverly Holoka is a collection of poems about depression. These poems are raw and honest. They are also descriptive. The author does not hold back. One of the great things about poetry and writing down your feelings, it can help your mind work through these thoughts. Some of the poems I enjoyed are:
The State of Death, “Looking into the face of death is finding what you never knew, It’s you in a different perspective, You’re breathless, lifeless, ended, yet at the same time; eternal…”
Death…, “He’s happily miserable, stealing these souls, dragging them down day after day, an endless sleep they fade away.”
“Sunsets will die
Beaches will drown
Life has left.” -When She Leaves…
I just love Beverly Holoka’s work! I have read several of her collections. These poems are difficult to read emotionally but I find that people who have gone through depression can really relate to them. These poems are real and raw. Mental Illness is still a stigma. However, when we are open about depression, anxiety, and suicide, then we can begin to connect to each other and help each other. Never be afraid to speak your truth. Never be afraid to reach out for help. I rate this collection 5 out of 5 stars!
