You and me
Waiting on things for the better, null and void-ish
In other words, negate
What can I do when I feel unloved
Unvoted, unsteemed, and not even read
Is there something needed, to get ready for this
The very next step in my early dismiss?
Please advise, I'll wait
Leaves me nearly breathless
Looking me right in the face
Now I can see it all so clear, the moment I stopped to hear
The sounds of Sunday
Tolling in my ear
I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
