Helium is the debut poetry collection by internet phenom Rudy Francisco, whose work has defined poetry for a generation of new readers. Rudy's poems and quotes have been viewed and shared millions of times as he has traveled the country and the world performing for sell-out crowds.

I normally do not review poetry books on my blog. I do read poetry but usually not a full book. Melinda from The Book Musings was telling me about poems by Rudy Franscisco and I decided to request the book for review. I am happy I did as there are some really beautiful poems in there.
There is a lot variation in Rudy his poems. All of the poems have a personal background but where the one is about love and insecurities others are about race, gender and class and the trouble Rudy experiences with them.
I enjoyed the shorter poems most. In the longer poems I sometimes lost the rhythm. Still there are a lot of true sentences in this small book. After I read the book I looked up Rudy in Youtube and saw a few videos with poems from Helium making them even more personal.
