“The Face of the Moon” by Mahrukh Siddiqui is a collection of heartfelt free-verses and poetic thoughts. It is the author’s humble attempt at presenting introspective and raw human emotions that people struggle to express and yet relate with. This is not meant to be just a book but a companion in your times of darkness and solitude when you need to lean on or understand your deep-held emotions, you may borrow the words within it to hopefully bring your heart at least a little bit of peace.
Mahrukh Siddiqui began to write at a young age; using the pen and paper as her therapist she let her thoughts and emotions flow through the ink of her pen. She realized that people tend to bury the void of sorrows inside them presuming that they’re unpleasant. However, she thought otherwise, “yes, you must bury your grief but not to hide it but to adorn it” thus she began to fill the void within her with bouquet of words. Words we all wish to hear. And so the sole purpose of her writing became to comfort aching hearts, to allow the flowers from the bouquet of her words to scatter away and bring at least a little bit of peace for at least someone.
