What I Felt Last Night

FREE WRITING

Stripped away of tender happiness
The heart grew silent and still
Wondering wishing wanting
Things that never will
I miss the smiling faces
The stress the fear
The tension
The relief
The motivation and love
When you here school is closed for the rest of the year
When you heard thousands of people have died in the past few days
You can only heave a mounting
Stone-like sigh
Wishing what dreamers do
Hoping wishing wanting
Things
You had before.

The Syrian Crisis

FREE WRITING

Allah,
Help us
I prayed.
Hold my small brother
Safe and tight
 
I don’t want to see him cry
Please send him his red car
Which
He left behind
Back at our broken house
back in beautiful Syria
where
one day,
a very loud sound came
and broke our house.
The day
Ommah cried and cried
and said to herself that we should not worry
About Baba.
And that Baba
 went on a long vacation
so
We might not...

The Deadliest Disease

FREE WRITING

Tinged red blood in colour
Running and fleeting in a chase from
One
To
Another
Weak and sudden
Causing choking tears
Cracking coughs
And stinging foreheads.
Women cry as they lunge for the last tissues
While others step back as soon as they
Spotted those
Narrow
Small eyes.
Chinese
Chinese.
They whisper.
And that girl spotted with those
Narrow
Small Eyes clenches her hand
As the eyes of the crowd stalk
Her like prey.
And with enough time given in...

A Different Country

FREE WRITING

Old and gold
rusted brown
born in the rising moonlight
beginning in India.
Went to America
and chained old customs
to the accostoms
and all that was left to become
was a 
fervent nostalgia
a feeling of who I was
and who I am
used to be so blurred
but now I see a
thick
thick
chained
line
between is and was.
How easy it is to get caught up in 
the 
feelings of excitements and rightness
and righteousness
to blend,...

Now Read It From the Bottom to Top

FREE WRITING

I am a ­nothing 
So I refuse to believe that
I am just as worthy as she is
I am not as beautiful nor strong.
And nothing you say will make me believe 
I am graceful and steady on the inside
And my heart is right because

painful broken society-implaced beauty.
Is always more important than
inner beauty 
because remember
how you look on the outside matters.
No longer can it be said that 
I am a somebody.
I don't matter. ...
