Quarantine Poem by Lubna Hazeem

Sustained by unconditional health
How frustrating to reinvent ourselves
Deep inside my soul
I glimpe a fractured door
Deep inside my core
Im nothing but a digested thorn

It must've been a dream
A very vivid dream
Of angels nursing me
I must've been dreaming of earth
I must've been dreaming of birth
Now im not...not frightened at all
All my worries are succombed down for more
Nothing really matters as it did once before

Because it was once you
Quarantining me
I dreamt that it was you
Quarantining me
And now i relise
Now i know
I spent a lifetime and couldn't cope
And said i didn't have much of a hope
Because i was once a hollowed ghost
Running down a hollowed road
Survival was my aim
And knowledge was unheard of to be found
But down below you came
And showed me the path to a clearer ground

I fought for my freedom
I fought for my soul
Even though i was hurt by affliction
I know im not anymore
Because it was you
Quarantining me
It was once you
And now im free
By your remedy
Of all agonies
Oh, im free now...
