For Everyone by Jason Reynolds
"...but my dream
won't stop crying,
like a colicky infant.
Sometimes I think
It needs to be changed.
It just needs to be fed." For Everyone, Jason Reynolds
With so much inspiration packed in 100 pages, I definitely would recommend this book For Everyone. Written as a poem in letter form, Jason Reynolds simply but powerfully sets out to encourage anyone who dreams, those who have forgotten to dream, and the dreamers who find their light dimming. It's probably one of the most inspirational books I've read this year because instead of taking the self help route of telling you what to do, it confirms that the feelings we all find ourselves experiencing from time to time in the pursuit of our dreams, are definitely valid, but dares us to keep pushing.
P.S. for those of you mentioning the cover art, it's a painting called "Brothers and Sisters" by Jeff Koegel. ❤️
