    Nayyirah Waheed is brilliant, as always. Before I recommend this book, I would like to point out that her work is intended for POC (people of color). She has been subjected to quite a bit of appropriation lately, and whitewashing her words to fit a broader context is unacceptable. She is okay with non-POCs reading and appreciating, but please do your research on white privilege and appropriation before picking up this very important book.These are Waheed's own words on the subject:"appreciate. f [...]

    I love Salt. by Nayyirah Waheed so I was excited for this collection as well. But it didn't pack the same punch as Salt. There were a few lines that I loved, mainly being the famous "I am mine before I am ever anyone else's." but other then those few I didn't love anything else. I would say you can skip this and just read Salt

    Gorgeous. I always say I hate short, sentence-like poetry, but this is injected full of meaning and empowerment and I can’t recommend it enough.

    That was so beautifully written at some points but so lame and repetitive at others. I'm confused about this book. I think I liked it but not enough.

    "this whole book is weepingdevery pore of this book is joydthat is the feast. "Painstakingly-beautiful. I really love Nayyirah Waheed's writing style, she persuasively describesthe throes of life,colour & race discrimination & the whole story in few stanzas. I like this one too but her previous book 'salt' had a stronger impact on me. Few of my favorite lines are:"a poem can eat a personwholer years. ""melanin is memory.future memoryst memory.your memorye memory of life. all your skin. [...]

    I wanted to love this, because Salt blew me away when I first read it, but sadly I didn't. It was an enjoyable read with some of the most quotable lines I've ever read but still I felt like there was something missing this time around. Like she was just going through the motions.I don't know what else to say because that's what I got from the book.

    Let me just say it, I fucking ADORE Nayyirah Waheed. If that woman were to publish a shopping list, I'm certain I'd read it because her words reek of tenderness and grief and anger and ache and longing and love and hurt and pain and joy and life and everything that is beautiful and hideous in this world.

    Stunningly painful, dazzlingly bitter, angst-ridden at times, and soul touching collection.I liked this one as well, but Salt. hit me harder.

    “the truth isyou were born for you.you were wanted by you.you came for you.you are here for you.your existence is yourss.”

    (what is the necessity of a black child being this high off of whiteness.)and so. we are here. brown babies. worshipping. feeding. the glutton that is white literature. even after it dies.I really loved reading these poems. It is definitely meant for people of colour, since on some level, we could all understand what Waheed is trying to communicate. They focused a lot on identity. On being who you are no matter what others say who you are.i am minefore i am ever anyone else’s.I especially love [...]

    I absolutely loved Salt by Nayyirah Waheed so I was a bit expectant, I still enjoyed this a lot but it might've been too joyous for me. Most poems hinted to heavy subjects yet they were still lovely.

    I expected to love it a lot more, I didn't, but it's alright, I can't love everything :)“some words. the way they look at you”“(may i tell you something.)the wordsey are in love with you.”3.75

    2.5. I loved a lot of them but there were just too many weird one line statements that I scrolled through in like one minute. And maybe some of them were meant to evoke thought for hours, but sentences like : “you were three years of water.”Or"there is oil in the water.”Really ruined the collection for me. I guess I just missed the mark. The two stars are for the two poems I really, really loved:whenever i think aboutmy mother and father. and the amount ofcrueltyi have ate at theirhands.i [...]

    Real Rating: 2.5So, I read this and salt. back-to-back—this was published after that collection. This collection has the exact same gripes I have about her previous collection (if you're so curious, check out my review of salt.).I was a mite disappointed in nejma. The collection started strong and visceral, very natural imagery with intriguing descriptors, almost lush. Then it deviated. It was jarring how many directions it was taking simultaneously. First it was embedded in cultural images an [...]

    I really enjoyed Salt and so I decided to pick up Waheed's second poetry book, Nejma. Whilst I preferred Salt, this collection of poems was really enjoyable and covered a lot of important topics just like the first. Her writing is beautiful and I find that her poetry flows so nicely. I haven't read enough poetry to properly review this collection, the only thing I disliked was that I felt some repetition went on for a little too long (but again, I don't know much about poetry!)"With a definition [...]

    "every poem. here an unwrite.of all that has been written in me without. permission."

    Nope! Her collection of poems - 'Salt' is way better than this. These poems seemed quite disconnected and random. I repeat- Nayyirah Waheed's book, 'Salt' is waaay better. Read that instead lol.

    Seeing as Nayyirah Waheed's other poetry collection, salt is one of my absolute favorite reads of the year, I expected to love this collection just as much but I just didn't. Her writing has definitely improved since this collection.

    this whole book is weeping. and every pore of this book is joy. and that is the feast.Goshdarnnit! There were repetitive poems here BUT DAMN hits the spot. I fu*king adore you Nayyirah!

    Another glorious read by Nayyirah Waheed and she manages to strike yet another chord with me. I mean one book after the other and I just want to lap and take everything she has to offer. Her words are deliciously bitter, lonely and angst-ridden. All they want is an audience – ears that will take it all in and reflect. Souls that will be moved and perhaps prompted to do something about the atrocities of the world. “Nejma” by Nayyirah Waheed is a poetry collection which is kinda overlooked i [...]

    Nayyirah Waheed is bold and powerful in her poetry. I met her with her latest book salt. - and fell in love with her writing - and was dying to read Nejma since then but could not pick it up until yesterday. Although it may be a late discover for me, I believe that I read this book at the right time in my life. I may not be an individual of color but as a feminist woman in a Muslim community, I feel her struggle closer to me at this age. Nejma is a strong manifesto from Nayyirah Waheed and I def [...]

    This book was like OK, and I was a bit disappointed. Maybe it came out too early and the author needed more time, but after reading salt. (that was amazing) I expected something more. Some poems felt unfinished, not as clear and direct as those in salt and definitely not as touching and harsh.Anyway, we'll give her as much time as she needs to write her next book

    I am a poetry person, I love poetry, but what I just read didn't wow me, it was plain, somehow similar to Salt by the same writer.Some parts were fun, others were just bleh.

    I still think she is a great poet. But quite honestly, this didn't have nearly the impact on me salt. had.
