‘Dare to Become’ is a poetry anthology that speaks volumes, especially to young people.it is a book written to a person in their state of becoming. It portrays how the process of becoming the best version of yourself unfolds. This anthology touches on every aspect of becoming and blooming into a holistic being. Some of the poems speak on depression; an issue that is not spoken about enough but continues to destroy and claim lives by the day. The poems encourage youngsters to be content with whom they are while striving for excellence, hence the author wrote a poem called “I wear my scars with pride”.
