A Woman!

Who am I? A delicate flower you say. I need protection. To only be kept away? You set so many rules. So that I am safe! Yet when I try to fly. You tempt me with your golden cage! When I decide to cover myself, You say I am oppressed? And when I don't. I... Continue Reading →

Masks

The ugliness outside, seems too obvious to hide. The prettiness inside, seems too difficult to find. The beauty you see, May not go that deep, as the faces are few And the masks in plenty. The laugh you hear, could be just as fake as a facade used, to hide the despairs. So trust only... Continue Reading →

Why is she more blessed than me?

Destiny.

I don’t know where I am going, I am scared to even see. What if I open my eyes, And I just stop to be. I know they laugh at me, Say things I should never hear. But what can you say to those, Who fear the idea of fear. Like a bird flying away,... Continue Reading →

A Rumi poem

“From "Wetness and Water” How does a part of the world leave the world? How can wetness leave water? Do not try to put out a fire by throwing on more fire. Do not wash a wound with blood. No matter how fast you run, your shadow more than keeps up. Sometimes it’s in front.... Continue Reading →
