I love poetry and have written quite a bit of it over the years. It was my main coping mechanism during my teenage years when I didn’t think that I could go on. That was how I compiled my first book Thoughts of a Wanderer and even added in some poetry to my most recent book. The point is I love poetry.
And the book Where the Light Shines by Kelly Inviere is a book of poetry. She uses poetry much in the same way that I did to cope with some difficult and traumatizing times in her life. She does a fantastic job!
Poetry is a very fluid form of expression and there are many ways to write it. Personally, using some type of rhyming scheme is a must. Which is a big positive for this book as Kelly incorporates various strategies of rhyming. It is an easy read but a heartfelt and deep dive read. The more poems that you read the more you can see how the story of her life unfolds. It is a very unique way to write an autobiography and it was a pleasure to read.
