The Purest Flower
Mnamri May 27

From this pain
there's much to gain

The shape of mud
where I have lain

The monsters in my mind
I've slain

their rows of teeth will form my jagged crown.

In the end the purest flower grows
from earth where self-sacrifice is sown.
finding meaning in the pain, live to see another day

Love is the answer
that needs no question.

Science and Stories
Mnamri Apr 6
The best science is like a story
The best stories are like a science

This was what I was thinking about today.
But I’m not sure if it's true.

I needed to write it down to test it.

Like science.

Or like a story.

Love is patient
Love is kind
But love can make you
deaf and blind

A love that sees and listens
is not easy to find

A love that keeps on waiting
and leaves no one behind.

We are all
Intersections in infinity

Meeting at the crossroads
Of each unfolding moment.

Now they put screens in the bus as
There's nowhere to run, there's no one to
Stuck in my place with this burning
It comes from within me, just part of this

A fire within me that burns so
Too strong for this world, but too kind to
Even the moments when I think I'm
I'd rather step back to give someone else the

Sailor without a Ship
Mnamri Dec 2019
A sailor without a
A shoulder missing a
Chaotic control slipping off my
Chained to unreasonable

Calmness as a God
You disappear into
the fog

While life sails on by
singing sweet goodbyes

Whisper of the wind
Mnamri Dec 2019
Whisper of the wind
Voices in the trees
Hear my wish
And let it reach her

Whisper in her ear
Stroke those freckled cheeks
Mingle with her lively light
But gently, with care
Out of sight

She doesn't need to know
about me

Let her be free

But let a loving glow
fill her heart
Keep her safe
Even if we're apart

If it's meant to be
It will work out

I hope it's meant to be
Even if I have my doubts

Sometimes you need to wait & see
Sometimes you need to shout

All my life I've been loved and free
But never felt free to be out

It's time.
Now I let myself fall

greeted by the moonlight
embraced by the pain

losing hearing but gaining sight
in delirium, becoming sane

this is my night
this is my right

no longer any his or hers
not even mine or theirs

just this
just me

not even that

an entity
