We Are As Three - Poem by Amani AlSaddiq

Locked in our rooms, you hold us against our will,
Restrained, for you say it is for our best,
None of us accepted, Amani, Ameera or Adilah,
Combined into one body, we are one, and will stay strong, from which you'll never be impressed.
Don't you know we aren't like you, remembering the disturbing past,
We moved on, illuminating our future with dreams being fulfilled rapidly fast.
We now sit in our small rooms, feeling entombed,
Scared and cold, there's barely any air,
It seems our souls will never be free from here, will we ever be exhumed?
One day soon, we will awaken from this nightmare,
Our knights in shining armour will rescue us, if they dare.
Hear our struggles, if you could see us weep,
Heavily medicated, why do you make us mentally weak?
We are, who we are and not what you want us to be,
You lived your life, and now it's ours, so give us the opportunity and you shall see,
For this is Allah's will, that cannot be undone or overseen.
However, when we awaken, Amani, Ameera and Adilah.
We will still be abused and punished for being who we are,
Our screams of frustration never heard,
We are the personalities from that room wanting to be free like high flying birds.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The three girls mentioned in the poem are actually 3 of my different personalities.
Amani being the one full of hopes, desires and wishes,
Ameera the classy, sophisticated lady like girl.
Adilah the withdrawn, quite, shy and under-confident girl.
