Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotion - Review
Betty Woodrum released her first book of poetry entitled
Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotions in on July 16,
2005. Her poetry is clean and simple and extremely honest.
There is such a strong theme of the various forms of love
that the word 'love' should almost be included in the title!
It is apparent throughout Betty's poetry that friendships
mean a great deal to her. The poem about online friends
reveals how deeply the Internet is involved in our society's
home-life. Betty warns to never let feelings go left unsaid to
the important people in our lives and then welcomes
readers on a journey through some tough times in her life.
Readers will watch Betty let go of the past, witness her
learning to live in the moment and feel her suffocation while
she battled depression.
Although Shattered Memories, Scattered Emotions could
use a little editing, the poetry is well organized and is
enjoyable to read. I certainly related to many of her poems,
especially the one where she discusses the vulnerable
feeling of being invisible and out of control. These are
feelings I think many of us share - and this is what makes
Betty's book so special. She helps readers feel like they are
