I chose to read a poem book by Caroline Kaufman, by the name of, “light filters in: poems”. I had been meaning to read a poem book for a while and I picked this one because it seemed new and not as popular. The poems in this books were a compilation of many themes and had a wide range of topics. If I were to simply explain some main subjects, the struggle to learn how to love yourself, depression, sexual abuse, abusive/unhealthy relationships and the past. Of course I was not able to relate to every single poem, but I found it extremely sensational and grateful to read about what goes through people’s minds and personal experiences with it. I found myself closing the book many times out of pure shock of how exact the words were. It felt as if my own heart and mind were written out on a page. Every single poem touched me in some way, whether it was because I was touched by it, related to it, thought the same thing, learnt something from it or understood something. Caroline Kaufman is a student herself which makes me feel more drawn to her because she is speaking in real time. She also addresses the readers very well and her poems are very smooth to read because it is direct and doesn;t distract the reader with complex descriptions and imagery. I want to read more books by her and also more collections of poem books because they convey a different type of message in my opinion. It was a good read and most definitely a book I would recommend for people who are looking for something easier to read but still have a connection and depth to it.
