daily i searched for you but i was unaware i was so full to the seam and i was bursting i needed an outlet,a vent to pour out it was like a volcano waiting to erupt in the midst of my darkness a crack appeared sending shards of light my way and it grew bigger by the day my health returned my smile returned and my well was full of i crawled to the light and whispered the spoke out shyly at first then loudly and then screamed boldly such was the life u gave me you appeared to me unaware in an instant you changed my life my glass is full and overflowing i was transported to Pakistan, Uganda, America,south America,Egypt i met somaye dehban,aysha ibrahim,anita muhanguzi,janice w,zoepilifias,delphine crescenzo,phionah musumba the list is endless i was soaring across borders without a passport actually without living my house i was here i was there i was everywhere the globe is now here with me yes!i found you. then i realized i had not been alone in my quest , others also found you and are still finding you millions were rising within you our rock, our platform,our voices, our lives all became one yes!WORLD PULSE I FOUND YOU you were what i needed now i am here i thought, i said, i did it and i found myself and you found me lets keep the fire burning as we enjoy our journey together and achieve greatness because we found each other you , me and all the millions who are on this bus.

what a wonderful response to this week's poetry assignment. You have addressed it so very well. I am aboard the bus with you and the rest of lovely people on this forum :) well done.

On another note, you might want to post this to your individual journal. I think that's what we are asked to do. Make sure your wonderful poetry is not lost.

Regards Aminah
