Description of the Book:
"What is in a flower that blooms- that a wilting flower fails to see?
"A wilting flower may be tainted by the facade of a vibrant colour, but a blooming flower basks in the glory of its dulling tint".
Growing up, I was someone who loved to chase after external obligations and validations. If I didn't look for validation within someone's words, I would look into their eyes to see if they were "satisfied"- not once looking within to ask myself "Are you satisfied, Deeksha?". I suppose this book pays homage to that part of me that is slowly wilting, and is giving vision to my true self that begged to be heard for the past decade. This book is composed of poems that speak to my journey of introspection; a journey to becoming a person who is open to growth, but also someone who is unapologetic for being themselves."
