Hi everyone, I hope you are all having an amazing day and are staying safe. This is one of my favourite poetry collections, Nikita Gill just has such a magical way with words and I can’t belive I haven’t showcased them yet.
“I hope you summon your courage and you invite your demons to tea, and you learn to listen to all their stories.”
“Take this as your reminder. Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear darkness, some wear wounds.”
“We have all taken turns being Red Riding Hood and we have all been the wolf.”
“She wears strenght and darkness equally well,
The girl has always been half goddess half hell”
“If girls were taught how to love each other fiercely instead of how to compete with each other and hate their own bodies, what a different and beautiful world we would live in.”
“You are not alone. With this endless universe above you that has given you the gift of existence. You are not alone.”
“I exist. Outside of being a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, I exist. I exist as a human first, as a being that experiences joy and suffering, beauty and learning, life and tragedy. I exist because the universe chose to put me here for a purpose higher than my relation to men. I exist because a wise old woman gave me a gift and now Magic runs through my veins. So the problem is not my existence as half Dragon, half girl. The problem is how you perceive it so small, you do not believe I exist at all apart from through my bonds with men.”
Have you read this collection? What did you think of it? Do you have any favourite quotes?
