“No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart.”- Shanina Shaik

Hi guys, i know i haven’t been posting my poem for a while now. I’ll try to shuffle it with the videos from now. Till next week.

Phenomenal woman; Happy mother’s day!

Here’s to all women out there, you are phenomenal. HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!

”All that i am or hope to be, i owe to my mother”- Abraham Lincoln

i chose to use the poem “phenomenal woman by Maya Angelou” because i think it depicts the identity of a woman that is someone who is more than just her beauty or looks in general. No matter how you look, learn to be comfortable in your skin and do not give into the pressure of the society to become someone you are not. I think the poem contains a message for all women to love themselves and be self-confident. Your inner belief is what truly matters and whatever that is, learn to accept it. Be positive, be happy. The society may say you do not meet the beauty standards, but beauty is not skin-deep  so no need to get so worked up about it. Remember, you are what you are, a phenomenom.

Happy world poetry day!

Here are some quotes that truly denote poetry

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.“- Buddha
