Somethings

We just want to forget

Sumerian

My color is a puzzling one

Golden like the sun

Forged from the womb of the first civilization on

Earth

Sumerian

Between Tigris and the Euphrates

I thirst

Who Are You?

-What are you?

I am a human

-But where were you born?

Here on Earth

As if it was OK to question my humanity

Just because

My color is not dark enough nor light

My color is a puzzling one

Golden like the sun

Mined from a womb of the first civilization on Earth

Sumerian

Between Tigris and the Euphrates

I thirst

I gather myself to reply

To the question of why

I am here

As if they had a better reason to be on this Earth

I am here to survive

To touch more than one life

To tell a story of those before

Of how life continues through the war

I am here because I refused not be

I decided it was my right to be free

I am here because I chose to stay alive

And to show

Those like you

Who never knew

A human with a different color

Or accent

That it is OK to be different

Heather

Standing on a bridge

Crying to the wolves

She suddenly doesn’t feel alone

Free, as they are, she was born to roam

She follows trails of her own

Calling these woods her home

Talking to waterfalls

You can see the leaves in her hair

The dirt on the dress she wears

Running free without any cares

The universe is her place

Heather you’ll never be alone

The wolves will follow you there

In the deep forest with no fear

You are free to be your own

FIGHT| Short Poem

How did you lose your footing

On a dry day

How did you find no other option

And have nothing to say

You are one in MILLIONS

Not meant to give up your right

Here to be inspired

Here to keep up the fight

Don’t lose your footing to a brick

On your path
