Gratitude

If it wasn’t for hate, I would have never known shelter, I would’ve called it shade and resented the sun, If it wasn’t for mercy, I would’ve never known dreams, I would’ve called them foolish and let them float away, If it wasn’t for desire, I would’ve never known greed, I would’ve called it entitlement […]

Little Angels and Cavemen

“And when the demons who’d lived in dark alleys, Came out to see the light, It was blinding and it was burning, They knew now to stay inside.” A lie he told to save a life, A myth that shielded innocence, There were many a greater good, For which heroes were woven from wreckages, Oh […]

Old Man

When I take a moment to think about what’s happening in my life, I am in awe of all the blessings, and in shame of my misgivings, The girl who thinks of me when she wakes up half way around the world, and the woman who loves me dearly day and night; The man who […]

Your hijab offends me, your bikini offends me, your joke offends me, your hair offends me, Your name offends me, your thoughts offend me, Your culture, your Jesus, your Allah offends me, But I don’t know you, you seem alright, You seem like a good man, but your clan offends me, Who cares man? Stop […]

Multiple Personality

I want every waking moment, To be fighting for a cause, I want those who I call friends, Beside me, behind me, I don’t want a fancy dinner, I don’t want your taunts to hurt, I don’t want to hear negativity, I just want to be involved, I don’t want to be remembered, I don’t […]
