"Rupi Kaur was born in Punjab, India, to a Sikh family and emigrated with her parents to Toronto, Canada, when she was four years old. All of her work is written exclusively in lowercase, and the only punctuation used is the period. In the Gurmukhi script, there is only one case and only periods are used. She decided to write this way to honour her culture. She also says that she enjoys the equality of letters and that the style reflects her worldview.[2] Her written work is meant to be an experience that's easy to follow for the reader, with simple drawings to elevate her words"--From wikipedia.org website.

I am not a huge poetry reader. However, I enjoyed this collection of writings. Borrowing this from the library made me feel somewhat compelled to finish it within a timeline. I imagine that it would be more delightful to purchase this book and read small sections over a longer period of time.
