The Same Inside


‘The Same Inside’ is a collection of poems that seeks to enable the reader to recognise experiences and feelings.

The narrator of ‘Jia-Wen’s Dragons‘ by Matt Goodfellow, offers that ‘somewhere deep/ in the distance of my dreams/ I fire-danced with dragons‘, when a classmate’s grandfather visits his class.

The determination to apologise, despite the Headteacher’s pronouncement on name calling, is considered in Roger Stevens, ‘I’m Sorry‘. I was that narrator, lying in bed, worrying about the effect of ill considered words.

Liz Brownlee’s ‘Differences of Opinion‘ shares the preferences and differences between two friends in quick, accessible couplets.

The three poets contribute powerful, subtle, varied and approachable poems. ‘The Same Inside‘ is a strong collection. ‘The Same Inside’ is recommended for class or home, but especially for the reader, seeking solace and confirmation.
