MORE TO LIFE by Jacob Lasher is a beautiful collection of short and long poems that have as a primary goal to heal the heart of people that are suffering from mental illness.Poetry for me is something deeply personal, and I take my hat off to the author that took the big step to present to the world his soul through his poems.The book is separated into four parts.

A Journey

This book is actually one that I enjoyed reading. I enjoy reading poetry that comes from the heart, poetry that comes from the soul. Words that make me feel something. I love contemporary poetry, but a lot of the 1-4 liners are like songs on repeat. Mundane. Repetitive. This book is not that way. I gave it five stars because of the content itself. I gave it five stars because the author takes you on a journey through a life of abuse and his struggle with mental health because of it. As

Poetry isn't the sect of the writing spectrum, but Jacob Lasher's poems are moving. You can feel the emotion in his words. I give him 5/5 because of the emotional response that his writing stirred within me. They all are simplistic but powerful. Tales of abuse, the scars that accompany, and how one lives his or her life with those scars.

First off, wow. Reading this book has just been truly an eye-opening journey on what it's like to live inside your mind filled with chaos, and to know what it truly means to suffer on your own.

The book is a collection of poetry and prose that mainly focuses on mental illnesses and how it affects people in different perspectives. It's like seeing the world through the characters' eyes, and peeking into their subconscious and their innermost thoughts.

The writing is exceptional, with words weaved

4.5 🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars due to some minor yet distracting typos and grammar problems. However, totally worth reading from beginning to end anyway.

Lasher takes the reader section by section on the journey of a survivor. Surviving many challenges, each difficult in and of itself to survive, let alone all together including: childhood sexual assault, mental health challenges, addiction, suicide, self-harm, identity, and sexual orientation.

What I learned was Lasher's ability to face those challenges head on,

This book of narrative poetry is a beautiful, rich, sad and ultimately uplifting chronicle of a young man's endurance of child abuse and the resulting internal pain with which he still struggles. Much of the book is dark, but the overarching theme of hope for the future never fails to shine. The poetry itself is luminous. Highly recommended.

This was refreshing and honest. Very different from any poetry book that I've ever read. I anticipate more from the author and hope I don't have to wait too long.
