Tales of When was written by N. Dahir, who is a young Canadian author and poetess. With a great passion for writing and storytelling, she self-published her first book at the age of 20 on August 2018.

To start with the review  about Tales of When, it’s really hard to believe that the author is only 20 years old because this book reminds us of writings from Karl Marx, only because of his futuristic views.

This book consist of variety of poems, but not in an unorganized or random measures that you normally see in poem books. In Tales of When, the poems seem to have more of a systematic flow as if you are literally reading a chronological book. So while reading this book, you tend to forget that you are reading poems.

When speaking of the random thoughts behind the poems, you’ll tend to chuckle as they seem to poke fun of  the dysfunctionality of politics, unequal justice , proverty and other ideologies that society may experience as a whole.

Since this is a poem book, we wanted to share just a few lines of the book without giving alot of it’s meanting away:

I had a name when I left the hospital doors

But soon as I hit the street, you thought you knew me more

{When name-calling was trending}

Because like the mighty elephant is terrified of the little mouse, our ego crumple out of the fear of judgement.

{When Excuse Were Give}

This book is totally different from the expected norm of a poem book. The poems flow more like an actual book. This book is now available at Amazon 

If you haven’t already please take a moment to meet N. Dahir!
