The Her OutSpoken Lips Collections dives into the theme of how one woman sees herself and others when faced with no so pleasant circumstances. The collection also expounds on a young woman who persevered through hell and what she witnessed and experienced along the way. Her OutSpoken Lips tell it all!

This is a whole new genre for me! I haven't read any collections of poetry since, say, the 5th grade! I was delighted when Monroe Ariel came to me with a poetry collection. As you guys know, I love reading new genres and trying specific types of writing. My comments about this book will be subtle. And I'm glad to report that I did, indeed, enjoy this book!
Starting with the versatile writing style of the poems. I enjoy poems that rhyme (because that's me) but I thoroughly flew past this book and found myself shaking my head, agreeing with the author's words. These poems are nothing too complex and cryptic. They were relatable and pretty simple to decipher. My favorite and most relatable poem called "Never Satisfied" had me shaking my head ferociously! It's absurd how some people always scorn the things I do right but appreciate the things I do wrong. The poem really made me realize that I shouldn't be pleasing anyone but myself. Now any masterly written poem makes you think and feel, which I feel these poems had no problem in accomplishing.
Ariel's poems tell of a story and each poem had their own unique story. She starts with the main idea of the story and expands from there in a very lyrical, rhythmic technique. And in terms of what kinds of story, they were consisted of poems about different types of women being pushed too far to the edge. One poem in particular really stood out to me. "Naked and Wet" is a moving and motivational poem about a young woman who has been maltreated and, finally, was pushed too far! I'm not gonna spoil it so you're just going to have to pick up the book to find out what happens next!
Need an easy poetic read with poems full of eccentric themes and morals? Monroe Ariel's collection of poems couldn't be a more perfect fit. Although I wouldn't necessarily give this book the golden five star, it was definitely something I really enjoyed picking up! And there were some technical errors here and there. In all honestly though, I would have never picked up this book on my own. Once again, thankful for all these amazing authors sending their books in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions. But I mean c'mon! You can't go wrong with poetry!
