Poem: Writer’s Inspiration

Amanda Lovelace has much affection for the art of poetry. She believes in drawing emotions and feelings from the deepest parts of the soul and spilling them onto paper. Below, i’ve included a poem from her poetry novel titled the princess saves herself in this one. The book recounts her life experiences which sparked her transformation from a ‘princess’ to a ‘damsel’ in distress, and finally to a ‘queen’.

Below is a poem from her novel which provides inspiration to all writers and certainly got me thinking.


write the story.


your hands

into the dirtiest

parts of yourself.

take the

rot & decay

& turn it into

nourishment & life.

water it

& sing to it

& show it


grow a beautiful garden

from your aching

& teach yourself

how to thrive from it.

write your story.

– the sign you’ve been waiting for.


I will be posting more inspiring/interesting short poems from the book as i continue to read through it so stay tuned. 👀 Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Let me know what you think about this post below!
