Alicia Keys Tears for Water

“Everything I have ever written has stemmed from my tears of joy, of pain, of sorrow, of depression, even of question. All of my writing has come from some form of my tears. I use these tears as water to nourish me, to quench my thirst for understanding."
Alicia Keys

If you are interested in Alicia Keys creativity then you will be pleased with her poetic skills. In 2004, Alicia Keys published “Tears for Water: Songbook of Songs & Lyrics.” The first half of the book consists of her breathtaking poems. The second half is her lyrics from both albums Songs in a Minor and The Diary of Alicia Keys.

Alicia Keys poetry is incredible and full of meaning. She pulls every emotion out of you from beginning to the end of every poem. All of her poems is unique, diverse, and has a specific meaning. Her poems are personal, but you can relate to what she was going through at a particular time in her life.

It’s impossible not to take something valuable away from her message. It takes courage to put out your inner most thoughts for the world to judge you. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to read poetry
