Growing Into A Butterfly

Poem By Nasra Al Adawi

I watched the sky from the distance
Butterflies are flying so free
Among the field of flowers and trees
On this forgotten corner
I stand so still
Sheltered in darkness surreal
My eyes are folded
Wonder if its part of the process of rising
Awaiting here for the forming of my wings
Yet the unknown I fear
Still nothing more I desire than to touch the wind
The feel of it on my newly wings
I could sense the emerge
I anticipate for it to happen at once
Growing into a butterfly
Will those who knew me before
Will they ever recognize me now?
A grown butterfly
Once it was just a dream to reach the sky
Now- am I an added color in any empty earthly skies?

What is the price of these tears?
As they fall carrying huge distress
Trailing on our soul with many regrets
Our love is nothing but pain and upsets

To touch the sky
And I do not need any wings
Enabling me to reach that high

Finding Soul’s Delight

I’m tired of gazing over the light
I’m tired of the darkness that I’m in
Gazing into the light that is so far
Adapting with the darkness in fear of the unknown

Writing a letter
It was only written to my father
He taught me that a letter is the bridge

The Massacred Of Nature

Screams continues, into a shallow silence
Distorted faces searching for survivors
Scattered bodies in an aftermath the massacred of nature
Some the earth had swallowed, some drifted by oceanic water

Im A Down Syndrome Child

No one else but me
Had been stared at
Like a starnger on earth
They look at me worried and afraid
