Who I Am? & What I Want? - Poem by Ayesha Sartawi

I am not a sinner, but nor am I saint
I was born to love but I was taught to hate

I have searched for answers, but remained lost
I've discovered happiness, but had to bear the coast

Unkept promises, unfair lives are what make us who we are
hurt, belittled and doubtful of reaching anywhere far

Isn’t it ironic to have ambition but lack the will to live?
Isn’t it painful to love so much but lose the ability to give?

Oh, those sleepless nights, that lonely moon and I
Those haunting thoughts that still cause my heart to cry

I will get over him and her and everything that they have done
but will I ever manage to set my self free to run?
