4/4 stars from The Online Bookclub

Poetry can express feelings we don't completely understand, but it can be hard to interpret poems when they have various complicated and unusual words. However, I didn't have that problem when I read this book since the author uses simple sentences that we usually hear in daily conversations. Still, he maintained the rhythm and the meaning of the verses. Furthermore, the accessible speeches combined with well-known thoughts about feelings make this book easy and fast to read.
It's a thoughtful poetry book that portrays the author's reflections and his maturation as a writer. I recommend it to those people who enjoy short poems about feelings. I also recommend it to readers who usually consider the poetic language too complicated since this volume might change their minds.
