Rise Unstoppable is the third book in the Rising poetry series by Michelle G Stradford, a compelling collection of poetry that delights as it inspires. The poems celebrate womanhood and the entire collection is divided into five parts: self-care, transform, amplify, rise, and unstoppable. Themes of abuse, trauma, limiting beliefs, self-love, relationships, love, and self-empowerment are skillfully written. The poems are filled with strong imagery, most of them are short and comprising of two solid stanzas. Each poem is a liberating work that, in short lines, helps the reader rediscover their beauty, their hidden strength, and what they are called to be.

This is a poetry collection that I savored with so much delight. At times reflective, at times reminiscent of the poet’s experiences, but most importantly, inviting readers to break free from the shackles of limiting beliefs and not be hemmed in by pain or trauma. The use of the personal pronoun “I” in the poetry gives it an intimate tone that allows the poet to bare her soul and emotions that are, at times, raw. The voice is strong, compassionate, and tender. The free-writing style can be indicative of  Michelle G Stradford’s conquest of inner freedom. Rise Unstoppable is the inspiration that women, especially those who have suffered and who still bear the scars of their past in their hearts, need in the journey towards courage, love, and authenticity. Here is one stanza that I took with me: “My fragility / humanizes me, / magnifies / my womanly / powers.” The poem ends with a warning: “I will not allow you to use it to weaken or reduce me to a wilting flower.” Rise Unstoppable is inspiring and delightful to read, filled with insights and powerful images. It is the poetry that celebrates you.”
