The End - Poem by Mariam Abdelghani

Standing high above the tracks
Feet firmly laid on the bridge
Mind recognizing the end
Body feeling sudden detachment
Wind blowing on my naked skin
Hair loose down my back
Eyes straight ahead with determination
Chin high, no longer any shame
Alone with the company of my troubled soul
Phone, uselessly next to my feet
Hope of someone to care
God no longer my dear friend
Nothing matters, except my end
It all must end permanently
No one could truly see
His eyes, touches, perversions
constantly leaving pain and confusion to bind
I must leave this wretched world
Where woman must put up with cruelty
Where religion is abused to the liking
Where man tramples over innocence
Where the poor scratch by for the rich
Where the rich practice social gluttony
Where woman are shrunk to objects
I must escape this world
Where my father is my
I am simply the object in this world
He is everything that makes me human


But I will step back
and discover
my humanity
