Bespoke Minds by Cornelia Kianauna

Bespoke Minds is a collection of twelve beautiful poems. These poems range from insightful, highly personal experiences to poems that read like self-affirmations. The poems remind us to embrace our uniqueness, remember our self-worth and step into our power. My favourite poem is Second Class Citizen, with the impactful line, 

“My lips graciously move, but the sound is sealed by oppression.” 

I personally felt that line in my soul, and I feel like anyone from a marginalised background living in England would feel similar. The collection of poems in Bespoke Minds is great for anyone that wants to take a journey to empowerment and self-love.
