When I first read Noor's poems on her Instagram, I immediately fell in love. Although English is not her first language, Noor has the power to create beautiful poetry. For me, her words motivate me to get out of bed every day and do something great with my life. I love how Noor can take her pain and change it into something beautiful.

I liked the drawings and the writing was okay, but as a whole it felt like home. A nice collection to read in bed with a cup of tea.

so glorious; it shines

I don’t read a lot of poetry. In fact, I’m not sure I know how to read it. I sit down and read a book like this in a half hour. But then there are some that I go back to a re-read ten times, or find myself thinking about all the time - that was some of these poems. I picked this up in the airport after dropping my parents off, and the first page I opened to spoke about travel and home and I knew the book was coming with me.
I've read some of her work on her Instagram and fell in love with her art pieces. I really liked her book of poems because it's relatable and she's not hiding on her thoughts about herself, religion, and her family.
for this is something
a lot of people
can never be."
