Poetry comes from the heart. There’s poetry in everyone as we all have a heart. But all of us may not be able to write down what the heart says in the required style.
That’s what happened to me. I thought I should also express what’s from heart and penned down a couple as blogs in WordPress. Though nobody told me directly, there were comments elsewhere on people writing something and call it poetry. And I know.
It’s in WordPress that I met Adithya. I liked her poems and became a good follower.
Then I heard about her book. And I realised that she’s just 21. Curiosity got me to read the musings of the young heart and I am completely taken in.
Here are 26 poems in her beautiful book. Each one tells the feelings of a young girl. There’s angst, fear, sadness and perhaps joy in love. There are stories and concerns of a young girl. Of the treatment, discrimination, cruelty, deprivation and such social stigma. There’s insecurity and dependence. And there’s love as the burning light.
An author at such an young age. A 21 year old in the 21st century! It’s something for us to be proud of. It’s not about feminism, it’s about the fact that being female is superior. That’s a beautiful world.
Published by Xpress Publishing of Norton Press, the book is available on Amazon at a price of just ₹100.
Hats off to the young poetess.
