Best Poem of asma bahrainwala

Desire

I am a well.
Confined by a wall;
Restricted by a boundary;
Stagnated by it all.

I desire to be a river;
I desire to flow;
I desire to merge
With waters diverse.

My wall is a block.
A societal construct;
A self-imposed isolation;
A resultant stagnation.

I desire to break this wall
Brick….by…Brick;
I desire to flow
Merge…Blend…Mix.

Who Is A Friend?

A friend is someone
To call upon
During times—
Good and bad.

A friend is someone
Who understands
What you need.

[Hata Bildir]
