    My latest is a poem about my mother :

    Enduring Love

    wake up, a cup of worries
    2 spoons of hope
    and a dash of pure goat milk
    from the motherland.
    Eldest, a college dropout
    she majored in failing and minored in persevering
    the second and last kid,
    a copper mark on a faded photograph
    you sigh
    about
    their jilted transition from childhood to...
    semi-adults -
    is all your asking for
    You endure their love
    sometimes you can't give it back
    because of the war
    like a slave at the market
    your emotions were sold
    for a bag of blank.

    You can't take me anywhere
    you think
    disrupted speech
    and stilted conversation
    this INFJ sister wilts and thinks
    you make me a frustrated companion
    a bank canvas of easy trust
    black-eyed Laila
    makes you uncomfortable
    even when she's not there.

    The Internet

    Wires zig-zag
    its not dial up
    but twice more difficult
    as the days where you spent ten minutes
    downloading a single picture
    of your favorite band.
    I'm surrounded, world wide
    a web of truth and lies
    who is he
    catfish?
    u feel so alone
    with a company of a billion
    that's a cliche but no less ironic

    twenty three says her reflection,
    photographs
    and guess games
    which taunt this post-adolescent.
    "eighteen"
    states official documents
    once more
    I'm Somali she says, looking out through the pain
    A cotton headscarf and mum's abaya
    She catches the 9:40 for her morning lectures
    says not much in class,
    she keeps it all in,
    can't edit her thoughts.
    But she sure can write 'em.

    Hi sister, I have no idea where these poems are coming from! Its interesting, I was very much into books and novels from a young age, and drawing, but never poetry I didn't have that type of rhythm and didn't know where to begin with, so I didn't try until now. my poems don't really rhyme, I just like to say stuff with meaning and try to make it sound ok lol

    I'd love if anyone of u sisters would like to contribute it would be good, like a sisters poetry group x

    Haha same here! I got a grade A in english for my GCSE, think it was because I used to love writing little stories when I was younger and just being imaginative with them I guess. Whats your favourite book? I'm actually a collector of GooseBumps books, used to love reading those when I was younger so I thought I might as well start collecting them too. Thats awesome though, your poems definitely have meaning in them. and I'm definitely up for a poetry group thingy, that would be great

    my real blood sister is schizophrenic
    she talks to the devil
    she claims
    but in tawheed
    she believes
    Like a square triangle
    she fits into no holes
    kubrick made a movie of her
    in my head
    He made her a king under his control
    the card laid out was a queen
    and they crowned me prince
    I left with wads of goodies
