Thoughts Of Mine - Poem by Ayesha Sartawi

When I was young I used to believe
cheating was the greatest sin
I though white sheets were ghosts
but everything has changed since then

I used to count the stars I wanted to reach
I counted every rock I had climbed
but through those years I had searched
for answers I still can't find

They say sunshine covers the rain
they say laughter covers the pain
but what do the mud stains on the wall say
and why are my tears still here today

I could be beautiful
I could even be rich
but deep within were no one has been
are scars which still wont stitch
