    quite ill
    round and a-round we go
    ramadan is over and sin overcomes
    the whisperer unchained and tugging at my spine
    makes me a coward and lazy all the same
    No direction
    she stares at the ceiling and
    wishes that it would move for her days work
    not even a drifter
    she is plugged into her seat

    how could I?
    The same man whose cousin uncle prostrated to
    whilst both were in their mutual wombs
    how could I?
    marry the man who is so revered across the globe
    lil' ol' me, the one who is basic in her practices
    but perhaps I'll be seen one day
    as one who struggled amongst her disabilities
    to have what people take for granted

    Exit Matrix

    I want to break free
    we shall overcome -
    many a song say.
    the chains made me adapt to this life
    of hyper blurring
    Is my mum really a mum?
    Or an alien in the finery of a Somali lady
    What am I?
    I ask everyday since 15 days ago.
    I thought of every conspiracy theory under the sun
    settled on the Truman Show for a few days
    I was a living walking reality show
    for those few days
    now the blessed red flower has appeared
    it appears my troubles have temporarily
    crept under my bed ready to disturb
    after the cycle expires.

    A poem that I posted on my blog a few days ago...

    Glass Mind

    transparent and caught
    within my mind
    human livestock graze
    they know not better
    and I know not at all
    they sow for fruitful
    destruction.
    I am vulnerable to their steps
    they drown my cries
    all throughout the night
    the foghorn sounds
    it tapes me down
    to the sinkhole
    of despair.

    Hey, can I have your blog url? I've had a quick look through your poems and I thought it sounds cool. I also started a blog a while back and have a fair amount of poems, maybe we can have a read of each others blogs and offer advice?

    Thanks, I will check it out.

    Yup, here's my link:

    I only have about 14 posts out of which about 8 are poems, including the introduction. (they aren't all your standard rhyming kind) Most are focused on topics such as identity, discrimination and prejudice. XD

    Your blog is really thought-provoking and makes me think in a new perspective about being a being muslim/a woman of colour at uni. you seem really intelligent.

    I mean I hope we can collaborate maybe?

    Aww, thank you, I'm glad it's made you see things differently. Haha, I'm not that smart, just good enough!

    I've been having a look through your blog and I really like 'Repentant soul' and 'glass mind' and 'breakthrough' from the ones I've read so far.
    I'd love to collab, that's a great idea! XD

    contorted into an image
    birthed from a mind
    infected with misogyny
    be a woman
    everyone has an opinion
    about your next performance
    shall you be dainty or a tomboy
    its all the same to me
    never unique
    we are one blended shrieking mass
    oh, but we can't do maths
    the 'men' say
    large and in charge
    they trip over our hems

    ~ I wrote the above poem in one of my paranoid feminist moods, hope no-one is offended!

    Dying to confuse

    https://l-rocksallthetime.blogspot.co.uk/

    dying to confuse
    lying, and so obtuse
    burnt on a whisper of praise
    leaving me on a smoked daze.
    This pathology cannot be explained,
    it lies within the maze
    of psycho-fancies and spineless interpretations,
    they will never understand,
    as you make depression your brand,
    that you live on imitation --
    isn't that what life essentially is?
    being a copycat from birth.
    I must say the ponderous will never avert,
    the day of the darkest lay -- your grave.
