✨👑 “The princess rose from the ashes…& crowned herself…” ✨👑
Told in 4 parts The Princess,The Damsel, The Queen & You, took me on quite an emotional journey.
I did not expect these poems to be so dark! (abuse is mentioned/discussed)
But as I continued to read, I knew exactly where this novel was headed.
I found the overall message to be, regardless what travesties transpire, you can always do something about it and not let it get in your way!
You are the hero of your own story!
By the end that was the powerful message I took away from these remarkably crafted poems!
There are many themes explored such as abuse, grief/acceptance, love, independence, feminism etc. that evoke such deep and raw emotions!
Through out each and every poem the words flowed perfectly and charted quite emotional journeys throughout!
The overall messages I took away from this are ones I will never forget!
If you are looking for deep, dark, but hopeful and inspiring poetry I highly recommend this one!
It will leave you speechless!!
