“A lovely collection I will read again and again. And for such a great cause is a bonus!” This anthology asks a lot of questions, and answers many, too. What wisdom would you impart to your younger self? Or would you not do anything differently? Is there anything to pre-warn yourself of? Or does everything happen for a reason? Hear from various poetic voices as they write to their younger selves. If only we knew then, what we know now. **All proceeds of this book will be donated to the MAKE A WISH UK charity**

That is exactly what this anthology does from the point of view of all of the contributing authors. They have done an exceptional job of communicating a vast range of emotions. Each poem that I read inspired me. In some it was the sadness evoked, in others it was the familiarity with the subject matter involved; in all it was the strength and fighting spirit that the authors show as adults who have come through different experiences.
What this book proves is that we are not all so different; that we are all survivors that grow and show strength in many different ways. Although we can’t advise our younger selves on how to do things differently we can advise the next generation. I will be handing the copy to my children to have a read so they can see how strong we can all be.This book is a gem worth every single star.
The bonus is that the proceeds go to an extremely worthy cause.

I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review, I have given it 5 stars.
I am not a huge fan of poetry but every once in a while a collection of poetry like this comes along and blows me away.
Each and every author has bought their A game in Poems To My Younger Self and given us this divine collection in aid of a great cause.
Every poem is thought provoking in it’s own way and some of them will raise emotions not expected. It really is a great collection of poetry that I would recommend to everyone.

A wonderful anthology of poetry, giving a little insight into each writers past.
What would you say to your younger self – there are so many different things to experience with these poems, some heart warming, some uplifting, some raw and painful.
I will definitely come back and read this one over again!
