If only

Rakhshinda Shakir
Posted March 28, 2020

I wouldn't hurt, it wouldn't feel

I would emotionally detach..


I wouldn't cry neither lament

I would be unknown to sorrows


I wouldn't sigh! wouldn't exhale

I would always be a fresh breath


I wouldn't flood in the memories

neither nostalgic for the unknown

I would shut the doors forever to my past


I would confirm to the norms

and be afraid of stigmas

I wouldn't interrogate

and hide behind your history


I wouldn't experience joy

amid hurt and misfortune

 wouldn't liberate to taste

my dear freedom!


I wouldn't think, wouldn't ponder

If only, I weren't a human being!
