Recently I’ve been absorbed in the simplistic yet incredibly profound work of poet Lang Leav. This young woman is such an inspiration to me. While my writings tend to border on overly complex analogies and musings, she manages to capture in just a few short stanza’s a heart-breaking rhetoric of human emotion. Her poems are melancholy, vulnerable, unapologetic works of art.
She is the international best-selling author of Love & Misadventure, Lullabies and Memories and winner of a Qantas Spirit of Youth Award and coveted Churchill Fellowship. Her book Lullabies, was the 2014 winner of the Goodreads Choice award for poetry.
Below is a small compilation of her work, particularly pieces that have touched me personally. I hope you, too, will find inspiration in her bittersweet truths.
