“What I have to say
Won’t always be pretty.
My mouth is filled with roses
That still have thorns.” - Aishah Salmah
My next few posts will be dedicated to one of the most authentic souls I am blessed to know. Aishah Salmah, author of “Taming the Lion”, is a friend who continues to inspire me with her voice of resistance. In her poetry, she addresses many universal and relevant themes that we could all resonate with. Personally, I connected with most of the poems and I love that Aishah highlights topics such as self-love, healing, sexual abuse, femininity, etc. in her writing. For this project, I will be highlighting four poems that I feel have important messages for society. Please check out her book and be ready to feel ultra-sensitive. 🥰❤️ P.S. Thank you @rafshaaan for agreeing to work on this with me. I am incredibly grateful. 🤗
