Fiza Meeraj is the writer of this book Beautifully Imperfect, Flawlessly Incomplete. Her work uses poetry to explore societal as well as personal themes. Fiza is a university student at Kings College, London. She started writing poetry at the age of eleven, as a coping mechanism to speak out about personal and societal issues which she felt the need to address in the form of writing. She hopes her writing, can act as an antidote towards the world's greatest issues such as patriarchy and war, as well as act as a source of comfort to those who cannot express their emotion in the form of words.
The poetry in this book is raw and riveting, and does not allow the reader off the metaphorical hook for responsibility to create a better world - not even for a moment.
Despite this, or perhaps because of it, the poems themselves ring with a kind of beauty and imagery that is wonderful to behold, intriguing, complex and rich.
This is a collection everyone should read.
