Book Review: A Softer Side of Me: 10 Short Poems. Monica Smith.


This is a pleasant read and, at times, like a verse you would find in a hallmark card. These poems are ultimately about humanity. There are poems about being a resident in a care home and about being one of the nurses tending to that resident,  which is humbling to reflect on.  It’s a sombre mood in these poems, with subtle touches to it that make this something we can all relate to and understand,  despite this being the personal experiences of the writer. Worth a read.
