And finally, day 30! Last poem for NaPoWriMo! We’re here! 🙂
So, I promised to end on a happy note- I think this one’s a happy ending. 🙂
I’m going to spend the next few days catching up on all the NaPoWriMo goodies I missed! If you have a special poem stashed away, please do tag me! I’d love to read it! 🙂
Thirty days of poems! This year, my fourth, was an absolute blast! Here’s three cheers for everyone who stayed with me all month! You’re awesome!
Hip hip HURRAH!
Hugs and kitten-bucketful mugs,
Your Friendly Neighborhood Cookie Monster
(Or, you know, just yusra) ❤️
Day 28 of NaPoWriMo! For the prompt ‘tell me how to heal’.
Bit of a dark turn, I know. I think it just hit a vein.
And, well, when my personal dictator has been home since a week, it is a bit hard to focus on the good, too.
Any hoodies, tomorrow I shall Endeavour to pick right up again. Wishing y’all a great weekend!
Cuddles and mufflers,
Home Is Where
I didn’t know much about the world
Or myself, for that matter
I took gratefully, what I was given
I didn’t know anything better
even existed, for people like me
Who are damaged so thoroughly
That we stand in front of mirrors
And dissect our entirety
No one taught me strength
I doubt I could’ve discerned
I drifted aimlessly, accepting
Scraps for the blessings they weren’t
When debasement is a norm, and
indifference the only recompense
The heart grows silently sicker
Without respect for its defense
I hadn’t known that I deserved
More, that what i was shown
I thought love belonged in parked cars
-you took me home.
It’s strange, how big the world is
When you don’t feel small anymore
Maybe, I can build my shelter, now
That you’ve already opened the door
