To My Dear Doctor - Poem by Sara Farouq A. Al Saqqaf
To my Dear Doctor
I hear them say' Doctors are there to heal your pain',
But what if your doctor is exceptionally inhumane? ? !
Her bitter words are forever in my memory engraved,
Even if the pain faded away and my life is perfectly saved,
Their cruel echoes will immortally & ruthlessly drill my ears,
God only knows they're worse than a snake's venom or a stab of a thousand spears,
Degrading my dreams for years to come and forcing streams of tears,
To my Dear Doctor I say 'If you think that my life or yours would be definitely ideal,
Then you're wrong, & though I'm young, & possibly short-sighted, Doctor please be real,
Dear Doctor face it, though my defeated tears failed to strangle me, for your good don't you ever again dare,
& think that your words will succeed to shatter my future or drown my hopes or crush me with fear,
Better for you to give up, you won't abort my sparkling wishes so never once more try,
Admit it, and have mercy on your troubled conscience, do you hear me anymore cry? ?
Or desperately sigh terrified from the moment when I'll die? ?
Or do you even see a single tear in my eye? ?
So listen to me screaming out those words only to you loud & clear,
I'm floating on the sea of ecstasy full of faith & flying with cheer,
And my laughs shall rise and fill the air all the time and everywhere,
Dear life has the last words to say, so do you have a second to spare? ?
'I know the guilty feeling you're battling but you cannot bear,
So I'd like to remind you, you'd better be cautious and aware,
Despite your lethal words, for once and for all I declare,
In God I trust, for God is wise & God is fair,
And I swear I shall not die in despair! ! ! '
