.....Love Thyself... - Poem by wardha jawdat

couldnt live with the pain
so i thought i'd drown it in the sea
already pregnant with generations of pain.
walked into the depths
of God's azure water bed,
feeling the kind sand shifting
under my desolate tread.
i paused for just a moment
questioned by the winds
was i truly ready for death...when
there was so much to learn yet
so much i should have said
so many unfinished rhymes
yet, bits of 'me' left to find.....
is your grief really so magnificent
that to it my life should genuflect
its torturous burdens
and its dark deep depths?
the waves, knocking upon
my self worth's door
get a timid reply, a meek'hello'
i walk out of the ocean's lap
as one nursed at a mother's breast
replenished, renurtured, refreshed.
you matter....
but maybe not so more
i matter.....
maybe just a little more....

    going gay and later getting pregnant with grief and the pain of carrying it, is life...what we carry in, on account of our merriment with life has to come out of its own whence the pain recedes...wait for that moment carry the grief with pain and love oneself one's own life till its end is the only treading path available to us...10 (Report) Reply
