Mettle & Flesh Kindle Edition
‘I realise with quite a fright
this page is now my portal
for as you read the words I write
I become immortal’
Mettle & Flesh is a collection of poetry encompassing observations on life, and how we see ourselves within it.
Born from personal experience, the poems span across topics ranging from love, loss, ageing, trust, bad dates, and the inner thoughts we usually keep to ourselves.
The poems range from contemplation to rage, from disappointment, to questioning the status quo. Within them, you will find a personal connection as you hear your own inner voice echoed on the page.
Mettle & Flesh is a representation of the inner strength we build through experience, and the pain and joy that our flesh can bring.

Find a cozy corner in your house, make a cup of coffee, and let this collection of poems transform you to another world where you will surely learn more about yourself and your fellow man.
The authenticity and vulnerability of the author is at the centrepiece of this book, where her journey through the different sections makes it a unique must read.
Im particular, I loved the poem Tell Me Bore which transported me back to my home country and all those friendships and relationships you have at the same time left behind but hold very dear in your heart.
The poem The Hue of You was a perfect way to sum up loss and love. Something I have gone through personally recently and it really resonated with how I felt. It’s nice to read how other people have had similar experiences expressed in different and unique ways.
All in all, I very much recommend this book to anyone who loves poems and especially those who hanvn’t had the pleasure of reading poems in a while and want to dive back in this beautiful form of litterature some might say has been lost in the modern times.
