“Poetry is the lifeblood of rebellion, revolution, and the raising of consciousness.”

The thoughts of poets just flow through their pen, forming a beautiful art by the composition of words.

On this occasion, we brought the impressive poetesses of Instagram together to inspire, motivate and empower your thoughts. They write by their hearts, putting their life into words so that they can contribute to the healing of the society. Let’s have a look at their wonderful works-
