Until Every Human Like Creature Turns Into A Human Being

I feel like

I am losing

Parts of me,

And I will keep losing

Until I am empty

And reach

Where this inner journey

Is taking me.

The matter of

each day now

And I grow stranger to myself!

That stranger self,

Though stranger enough , but soothing.

In this company

And for this company

I am willingly losing

And ready to lose,

All that outer belongings

All that shallow connections

Merely meaningless relations,

Meaning nothing.

I have given up everything

All with my consent.

And if in this journey

Of inner self,

I happen to meet

My creator, the God

Here or after

I will have tears said it all

Of all the sufferings

Anguish and pain

Even the helplessness,

That tormented my soul,

During my excursion

In this "human like" creatures kingdom

Called earth,

I would allow

My bowed head Kneel down

And weep,

Weep Until,

Every human like creature

Turns into a human being.

Dear Rakhshinda,

This poem resonates deeply with me, and I celebrate that you are allowing yourself to empty, to allow room within that holds the unknown, in order to shed, to let go of the inevitable unbearable pain we feel when we look deeply at how cruelly the "human-like" treat humans. May your letting go of this pain through your tears bring you the strength to continue the work you have been doing, knowing that you are surrounded by others who understand and are working with you.

With love in sisterhood,
