Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. ~ Edgar Allan Poe
Poetry is derided as a beautiful way to convey the beauty around us and even what we feel and experience. Everyone can write, but not everyone can write a good poetry. It requires skills as well as the ability to explore the words, feel the words and know the rhymes.
On March 29, one of our young poetess, Selinaah Muralitharan yet again stamped her name in the Malaysia Book of Records for the second consecutive time. She successfully garnered the record for penning the “Longest Melancholic Poem Composed (English)” consisting of 3,324 words and 118 stanzas in the poem titled, Let Me Let You Go.
Prior to this incredible feat, this 24-year-old lass enters into Asia Book of Records for composing the Longest Love Poem in the region. Then, she sets her first Malaysia Book of Records in April 2019 for writing the longest love poem (in English) in the world.
This former national shuttler shared this great news on her Instagram, penning down a heartfelt note.
“Broke another national record by writing the longest melancholic poem in the country!” this poetess proudly said.
Furthermore, this young lass also thanked her parents, siblings and friends for always supporting her. “You guys are the reason why I strive for greatness.” she wrapped with a heart ❤️
“I’ll only publish the full poem when I’m ready. In the meantime, here are the first few stanzas of it,” Selinaah stated, sharing some beautiful poetry stanzas that she penned.
Thank you Selinaah, for showing that today’s youth still acknowledge and value poetry.
Keep writing & fly high Selinaah. ✨
