Even if you don’t immediately recognize the name r.h. Sin, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with his work. His poetry has taken Instagram and the poetry world by storm, popularizing the writing form in a way that the world hasn’t seen in quite some time.
A Beautiful Composition of Broken is r.h. Sin’s sixth collection and serves as an ode to the beautifully broken. His words touch on women finding strength within themselves, the brokenhearted mending their wounds, and the insecure learning to find the confidence they’ve always had.
I had pretty mixed feelings about this collection. On one hand, it felt a little thrown together with no real order or true theme, aside from a few multi-part poems. There was a lot of repetition, and a lot of poems that were really just a few words separated by line breaks. On the other hand, there were several absolutely stellar poems that made me want to shout from the rooftops and tattoo the words across my entire body.
It was definitely worth it for the handful of phenomenal poems, but overall wasn’t my favorite collection.
