Not Afraid - Poem by abbas abubakar

I came to the world
With a word in my palm
I trekked through this valley
Just to sow this word in wind's womb
Then the world call me crazy
For the gardener that I am

If they would crush my bone
If they would bring d sun to my heart
If they would pill my skin
Even if they would pluck my tongue
I am not afraid
For this word I must sow

    I really liked the poem overall. However, there is one error: If they would bring d sun to my heart, it would be awesome if you fixed that. (Report) Reply
