One hundred poems that honour the raw grit and the moral fortitude that exists in all women. 

“Great for fans of Rupi Kaur.”

With millions of books out there, there has never been a single poetry book dedicated solely to the inner strength of women. Until now.

Welcome to ‘Made of Flowers and Steel’, a raw, healing and intimate poetic journey to the ultimate triumph of today’s woman. 


Welcome to ‘Made of Flowers and Steel’, a raw, healing and intimate poetic journey to the ultimate triumph of today’s woman. 

Inspired by stories of real women, this collection of 100 poems honours the raw grit and the moral fortitude that exists in all women.

Sometimes that power is inherent, sometimes it needs to be invoked, but it is always there.

Page after page, you’ll discover a newfound love and respect for yourself, and for all the women in your life.

This is NOT a regular book of poems on love, heartbreak or feminism. 

It’s a salute to the moral strength it takes to be a woman in today’s world.

Trigger warning: Some poems deal with disturbing, sensitive issues women face every day. Reader discretion recommended.

Look Inside

The Team of Me

i am on the team of me

i am my biggest fan

i slap my back and tell me 

it’s gonna be okay

when it feels like 

it will never be

i cheer myself up

when i am feeling down

i give me a pep talk

i give me a ted talk

i am the one who really listens 

when i need to talk

i am the one 

who pampers me and 

takes me shopping,

when life has been 

too hard too long

i am the shoulder i lean on

i am the one 

who gives me strength

after a break up…

i am my favourite summer song

i have dear friends, 

soul sisters too,

but above them all, 

the truest best friend 

to me, is me.

i am made of flowers

i am made of steel

how can i expect anyone to be on my team,

if i won’t be on the team of me?

A gorgeous collection... I would love to pick up a physical copy of this book

This collection is as beautiful as the cover artwork and is quite impressive given the author is male and the poems are focused from a female perspective. The ending of each poem includes some form of the lines "made of flowers and steel", which can get repetitive at times but can also be very fitting depending on the content of the poems. This was a gorgeous collection and I would love to pick up a physical copy of this book.

Trigger warning: Rape, molestation & domestic abuse.PLEASE DO READ THESE WARNINGS BEFORE READING THIS Collection Of poems, AS IT CAN BE VERY DISTURBING.

why does

no one ever tell us

we need to get old enough to not need our mother?

mom, you were made of flowers and you were made of the loveliest steel - GOD ON EARTH

This is the type of poetry book where I read the first poem and immediately know I'm going to award it five stars. Many of the poems captured my attention and heart. And I was astonished to learn that this was written by a man since I had assumed it would be a woman based on the author's name. HUHU, I FELT CATFISHED.

A good collection of poems

Es un buen poemario. It was hard to read sometimes but it was good enough for me.
At the end of every single poem, there was this phrase about being made of steel and it was tedious to read.
Despues de eso, habla sobre el empoderamiento y el aceptarce a une misme, cosa que hizo qeu remontara la calificacion.

Great for fans of Rupi Kaur

Love the theme of empowerment running through the collection. Poems look at both personal and general issues for maximum impact and reach. Great for fans of Rupi Kaur.

I truly don't know how to feel...

I truly don't know how to feel about this poetry collection. Some poems spoke to me deeply, but others just sounded wrong. By the end of the book I realised that the reason these sounded wrong was because they were written by a man.

I am not saying men cannot write about women struggles, but abuse and rape are very sensitive topics. The author could have chosen to write about them without adopting a woman's perspective.

Another reason for my low rating is that the poems were way too literal and lacked the metaphors and flowery language that I enjoy in poetry.

they are literally
just sentences
in verse.
