Summary: “Uncaged Wallflower is for those who feel trapped in the thoughts their minds produce, unable to express them with the rest of the world out of fear of critique or disagreement.”

The Good 

Jennae Cecelia’s writing flows well in this collection. I feel like there are tonnes of narratives hidden in this poetry collection. I also feel like some of these poems should be spoken aloud, and some of the poems have a conversational tone which makes the poetry easy to follow.

Metamorphosis.

Feeling your wings breakthrough.

Growing into the best you.

(Metamorphosis, p.7)

However…

There were a few grammatical and spelling errors which were discouraging. In a similar way to Cecelia’s other collection, Bright Minds Empty Souls, there were a lot of clichés that did not sit right with me. Cecelia’s writing style is either a hit or a miss for me.

Why did I read it?

I like to challenge myself and read inspirational poetry. I have also read Cecelia’s other poetry collection, Bright Minds Empty Souls, so I thought I would give this collection a chance.

Does the author have other works?

Jennae Cecelia has written two other poetry collections: Bright Mind Empty Souls and I Am More A Daydream.

Overall…

Uncaged Wallflower was refreshing as I related to a lot of the poetry. On the other hand, I believe Cecelia has a long way to go before truly moving me as personally, her poetry does not reach deep enough.
