Five motivational mindful steps to own it. Take full control of life.
Today is a big day. I am opening the blinds for my soul so that I can see clearly and feel life inside and outside. I am detaching myself from opinions and judgements. I no more want to drag memorise from past to hold them responsible for my present and blame them for a distorted future.
Today I own it. I am taking full responsibility for my life. I want to bring my dreams into reality and today I untie myself with my memories and take things under my control for the life I have envisioned.
Her Self By Nisha Thakur
She is not weak but deep.
Deep as the sea.
She is a whole world in herself
but eyes fixed on the shore can’t see.
Her ‘Self’ opening the blinds is a collection of poetry about the female spirit
that raises her voice to say no. It’s about when a woman stops waiting for
someone to save her but becomes her own saviour.
It’s about her choice to express her suppressed self. Her ‘self’ throws light on
the transition of a girl going through brutal judgments, pain, mental abuse,
loss and identity crisis to a confident woman who knows to take control and
also knows to control herself.
I am the fire
I fall, I rise.
I accept, I reject.
I am silent, not passive.
I stay calm
but I can set everything on fire.
yes, that’s what I am.
But I am water too.
I am serene.
I nourish, I provide.
Provide you with all I have.
But you judge me.
That’s all you do.
my life, my body,
my beliefs, my character,
my faith and much more.
You destroy what I cherish.
Time after time you demolish
what I love.
That’s why I became fire.
I am the fire.
Stellar work!! Such an amazing collection of poems. I enjoyed each one of ’em. “Sparkling me”, “Because it feels right”, “Relationship Status”, and of course (Her Self) are my favourite ones. “Relationship Status” is sad but ironically funny. There will always be hope, even just a spark, or one candle, it can do many things in the dark. My heart is so joyous to know you as a poet as a writer, born with such great talent. I am so glad to encourage you with your powerful writing and can’t wait to read another compilation. Keep inking….Be Blessed!
It is an amazing work. Poetry is salvation which gives freedom of expression. There is something about her words. Words have the power to break, build, to decimate or make. Nisha has the power of words.
Highly recommended. Great work.
I just finished reading this book and I should say it was really inspiring. Nothing more than Nisha’s words could boost me in my current situation personally. This book language is so simple to comprehend but deep. I can’t choose between the poems because all of them have lines that are shining and memorable. I highly recommend this book to young girls especially those who are passing shaky phases of their life.
