Darkness and Light, Mahevash Shaikh

Don’t let yourself believe that one day
The Universe will make up
For all the times it broke you.
No matter what you’ve been through,
The rule of life remains the same:
Put in the effort, see a change.

Darkness And Light is a collection of poems that explores common mental health problems and the strange, dysfunctional world we live in today. After all, mental health and society are intertwined, aren’t they?

Darkness and Light is a poetry book I was excited to discover and a book I was eager to get lost in! As a poetry lover, I always love to find new poetry books however sadly many can not be that great. However, as soon as I started to read Darkness and Light, I knew this was an exception as this book was brilliant, unique, and memorable from the beginning to the very end.

That is why I am so happy to have read Darkness and Light and why I am so excited to be sharing it with you today! As it is a poetry book that should not be missed. That is why I already recommend this book to you lovely readers, however, if you need more convincing then continue to read to learn more!

Darkness and Light is a collection of poems that are some of the most moving poems I have ever read! Darkness and Light is a unique book and its poems will make you feel a host of different emotions. Darkness and Light is a compelling collection of poems written by Mahevash Shaikh that really stand out and make an impact and so I highly recommend this book to all those that love poetry or even those that don’t usually! As Darkness and Light is a unique blend of poems that I think anyone can fall in love with.

The poems laced throughout Darkness and Light are so brilliant and deeply thought-provoking too that I have not been able to stop thinking about them; they explore mental health and the world we live in today. Mahevash connects the two and it makes for a deeply moving read that explores mental health in an honest and open way.

As soon as I would finish one poem I would end up re-reading it because I wanted to immerse myself in it again and understand the true meaning or just re-read it for the fun of it! And that is the beauty of Darkness and Light.

Mahevash Shaikh is an author whose work I have reviewed before, her previous book Busting Cliches is a wonderful self-help book so I was excited to read and review her new poetry book and it did not disappoint!

I have read a lot of poems in my time, especially since a young age but never have I ever been so provoked in different ways by the ones in Darkness and Light, as I felt they really did capture a wide range of emotions which is hard for a poet to accomplish. However, Mahevash Shaikh accomplishes this with her mesmerizing prose and unique poems.

Overall Darkness and Light is a sensational, unique, and beautiful poetry book that should not be missed, I, of course, have to award this stellar book five stars! So please, have a read of Darkness and Light and get lost in the captivating and brilliant words of Mahevash Shaikh and be compelled to read from the very beginning to the very end… you will not regret it!
