Flowers Grow on Broken Walls


Loved it! 😍

A beautiful story told in prose about healing and finding yourself in a world that constantly tells you that's who you shouldn't be.

A unique collection of poems that starts at the end and ends at the beginning.

Flowers Grow on Broken Walls feels like an autobiography or a novel told in prose; we get a full story that is everyone’s story at one point or the other.

The poems / story goes over our everyday human emotions; from being heart broken and questioning our self – worth in a world of judgment and scrutinizing social media to finding ourselves and appreciating those really important in our lives – especially our inner, true selves.

The collection displays a raw and honest portrayal of an artist who cannot help but create something beautiful in the midst of the ugliness she has been put through, and who continues to hope against all odds, as she lets go of what she has ben told is important and finds herself in one truly is.

The story that starts with heart ache end with healing, it starts with rejection from someone but end with self – acceptance, which is the only way for true healing.

The author writes in a very elegant and compelling manner, making the poems relatable and both emotional and entertaining. The art work is very befitting and lovely.

I recommend this book to anyone going through a rough time who needs the assurance that things will get better.
