Poetry is one of the most beautiful ways to express emotions and opinions and share lessons. It gives the reader a chance to form their own understanding of the message, making a single poem applicable to different circumstances. In her book titled Dismantling Cinderella, Tamsen Grace shares a collection of multifaceted poems that touch on a variety of topics to bring to life compelling lessons about true love, self worth, relationships and getting rid of the myths and prejudices that have been ingrained in our minds.
Dismantling Cinderella delivers poems with raw and compelling emotions. Tamsen Grace kept each poem short without compromising the depth of the message and emotions. Each poem delivers a new message(s) and together they form a story. Dismantling Cinderella is a story of love, pain, healing, self discovery and triumph. The poems tell a story of the thorny path of life that is often inevitable in the journey to discovering true self worth. She shares her emotions with simple and raw honesty that makes the poems refreshing and memorable.
Tamsen Grace uses her own life story to deliver an empowering message about self love and self worth. Putting the Cinderella story at the centre of her message was a stroke of genius since this is a story kids all over the world have been raised on. Stories like this have such a strong hold on our minds from childhood and we subconsciously carry those beliefs with us for life. Poking holes in these stories frees the mind so we can discover our true self worth. Her words will inspire you to break the mold, find your wings and live life fully, happily and on your terms.
