Growth
Sadia May 2017
With every growth there is a deep struggle. The soul has to advance spiritually by reshaping itself. It slowly strips away layers of the internal trappings of our life, be it physical or emotional. In doing so, we mold ourselves back into the shape of a stronger human being

beautiful poetry
Sadia Aug 2020
I could write the most beautiful poetry if I wanted to. But what good is the poetry if it’s complete without you.

Love Blooms
Sadia May 2019
Drifting downwards on the stony hills, only to be picked up by the breeze,
I can hear my lover's voice echo off on the lonely landscape.
Where are you, my love? Your voice plays like a sadden tune,
It sinks into the chambers of my heart.
I am unsettled; I search for you aimlessly.
Wisps of dark clouds form, a gush of wind picks up, I am caught in the midst of a storm.
Again, distance and time conspire to separate us.  
Unable to see, I can hear only raucous roars of thunder and lighting.
Your voice fades away.
As the wretched winds push me, I try despairingly to hold on to something.
The storm gently ceases. My eyes open, I see my arms wrapped around you.
Two lovers lost finally come together forever.
Holding hands ​down the paths we walk,
As the splendent ​sun slowly sinks in the hills,
a new chapter awaits where love finally blooms
Please let me know if any lines should be changed. Your suggestions will be helpful for me to become a better writer.

Who are you?
Sadia Aug 2017
The tides move in and set me adrift in your love once more. The waves crash back and forth, synchronizing in perfect harmony. When I look at you, there are depths hidden in your beauty. Who are you? You are a treasure. Hidden beneath, you are the ocean; the epitome of mystery.

War
Sadia May 2017
War
I don’t know where I’m going. Whatever path i take, It seems like I’m going back and forth. There is no place to run, no place to seek shelter. My homeland is being bombarded. I'm stuck in the middle of a battlefield. The smoke fills the skies. I can hear the screams of the mothers loosing their children. Bomb after bomb blast echo across the landscape. They are so loud my ears are rending me deaf. My heart trembles. Bodies lay on the ground, some dead, some injured. Those injured are in need of help. Hatred has stained the hearts of many. I lay here, along with the rest of the civilians on the path way.
There's so many questions on my mind. Why is this happening to us? Why are innocent civilians being killed? Do I have to be rich and famous for my voice to be heard?
As the sun goes down, night falls. You can hear whispers of words from those who have been lost. Bodies lay on the ground and a stream of blood flows. Those injured become weaker and weaker, calling in need of help...
Life fades away.

Souls Collide
Sadia May 2017
We were both flying high, reaching out to one another.
I felt our souls collide; we shook the skies like a rumble of thunder. The lights flickered, lightning struck.

Desire

She was painted in the colors he desired.
She was heaven to him, breathtaking and beautiful.
The moonlight in her eyes and the words she spoke touched him.
She was like a fine painting framed in his heart.

Time
Sadia May 2017
As time passes by, the past has been sealed. We cannot travel backwards, time will not permit us to do so. Instead, we need to look forward in life. We are the ones who control our future. It is up to us to fulfill our dreams. If we don’t seize what lies ahead of us in time, our life will tick away...just like the clock that ticks away time.

Soul Traveling
Sadia May 2017
Sometimes I wonder, when we are dreaming, are we really there? Or does the soul leave the body momentarily? Even if it's true, what awakens the soul? Is it someone we haven’t met but we share the same sky with; maybe the power of the universe is trying to bring us together through astral projection? The feeling you get when you meet a stranger; yet you feel you have met him before. Is he your soul mate, is he real? That instant connection, the feeling of warmth. The same warmth you felt in your dream.

Lover's
Sadia Jun 2017
The dark night whistles a midnight tune
As two lovers unite.
The moonlight sets a spotlight on them.
He takes her hand, and she wraps her arms around him.
Eyes locked, he carelessly whispers, "Will you sway with me?"
As the lovers' hearts come closer, as the music beats fast,
Two hearts slowly drown in love.
Both lost in each other's embrace,
He dips her under the moonlight sky.
His hands stroke her face.
The stars are the audience.
And as the music ends, he steals a passionate kiss from her.

sunrise
Sadia Jun 2017
We wake up
to the birds singing a melancholy tune—
a timeless song that you can only hear when dawn slowly rises.
The morning gently looms, in shades of pink and orange hues.
Trees sway gently in the summer breeze.
An intoxicating aroma of nature permeates the air
upon the warmth of the sun's sweet rays.
The sun welcomes us.
A new day starts.

He
Sadia May 2017
He
He comes out only when he's waiting for you. He has many admirers, but you're the one he chose. You are his brightest star, and the reason why he shines so brightly. When you left, however, he split in two and hasn’t been the same since then. The sky remains in perpetual darkness; only your return can make him whole again.

Trapped
Sadia May 2017
I feel trapped within the four walls of my mind; locked inside this body. I've tried to ask for help, but struggle to say what it is that I need. I feel like a puzzle with missing pieces. I'm a prisoner in my own body, and each day hurts more than the last. Life feels like a constant battle, and all I want is a fresh start.

Life is a Mosaic
Sadia Aug 2017
The most beautiful artwork comes from us. Our lives are like a mosaic. Sometimes we have to break apart, in order to remake ourselves. That’s the beauty of life. With each trial, we are constructing new and different versions of ourselves; sculpting into a beautiful masterpiece.

Words

The words were scattered and I didn’t even know how to place them. When you spoke to me, your words ignited a spark within me and gave me an inspiration to write. You were my first muse, which is why I call you my poetry.

Love
Sadia May 2017
You had fallen so deep in love with her that she could see right through you, why did you close the doors on love? The moment you left she missed your presence. It was then she knew that she had fallen for you. Your love was intoxicating and lethal. You ignited a spark within her and now the flames burn.

racism
Sadia Mar 2018
I brush my hair while deep thoughts run through my mind as I look at the mirror.
Caressing my face in pain, I question myself:
What’s wrong with the color of my skin?
I’m just a girl who was on my way to school when a group of
people stopped me.
Pushing and shoving me back and forth
Language was used and voices in rage exclaimed that I didn’t belong here.
As one of them knocked me down, my face hit the pavement and the beating went on.
Terrified I was, I thought I would be left to bleed and die.
Lifeless with onlookers passing by
I cried in agony.
When will this racism stop?
When will people realize I’m just the same as everyone else?
Do I have to be rich and famous for my voice to be heard?
As I got up with a shaking voice, I murmured I’m just a human being.  
But I don’t think anyone heard me.

story
Sadia May 2017
A long time ago there was a piece missing inside him, until he met her. Who would have thought his meeting would bring so much happiness? She had filled the void in his heart. He loved his conversations with her, he liked what she had to say, for every breath she spoke created ripples inside his heart. Her beauty was mesmerizing, with her elegance and grace and how she carried herself, her presence would light up his eyes each time she would walk across the table. He only had eyes for her.

As they walked out of the cafe, he wanted to embrace her but was afraid of what she would think of him. Little did she know he was in love with her. Both had tickets spending their last day with each other. He wanted to tell her how he felt for her at the train station platform. It would be the last time they would ever meet. Both had two different routes. They embraced each other with a hug. With a final farewell before he could express his feelings, he decided to end the story. Knowing she would never go for a guy like him. As she walked away he turned to look at her for the last time, and went on board and his train departed.

As the clock struck 12:00 the conductor said, “All aboard to the Polar Express." She sat on her seat; her locket fell on the floor and there was a picture of him inside her locket. As she glared she spoke, "I wish I could have told him that I was in love with him but I was afraid to say anything. But my eyes are sealed, the final memory of him of my final farewell, and his love will always be embedded in my heart." Their love story ended before it could ever start, neither one told how they felt for one another. As the train moved she hoped in her destination there would be someone who would fill the empty seat next to her and be the faith in her cards and be part of her destiny.

I hear the waves crash back and forth, synchronizing in perfect harmony. The winds whisper my name. My heart beats fast.
The sky hangs over me, and the waves come near;
I’m pensive, self-absorbed. I walk alone, my soul uneased, searching for all the answers.
What’s there waiting for me, at the end of the ocean shores?

without him
Sadia Dec 2017
She sits on her window sill watching the snow fall, while she sips her coffee.

Houses are adorned with every shade of festive lights.

Children play while loved ones hold hands on this cold winter night

As the vibrant voices of carols shine bright.

Bringing joy and love during this

beautiful season.

The sky lights up with a full moon in sight

But dark thoughts sneak into her mind

Another forlorn year without him

Wishing he was here beside her.

To be wrapped in each other’s arms

Spending this chilly Christmas together.

Soulmate

It was the first time I met you, but it seemed as though my soul had met yours in another life, that I had loved you long before. When you spoke to me, I felt a fathomless connection. The moment I laid eyes on you, your name was engraved in my heart. It was as though you were meant to be here. It was God's way of telling me, “There he is.”

Memory

What started as a line, turned into a book. A book about his love for her. Somehow he couldn’t forget her. His love for her was still alive in his heart. She wasn’t just his book about his desire; she was the love of his life. It was in these pages his memory of her lived on.

Fear
Sadia May 2017
We all have a fear of something, may it be heights, drowning or an enclosed space. Each of us has the ability to overcome these fears, but can we be certain that this is the single greatest fear we have? What about walking on a path of darkness without the guidance of light. Are we really able to walk on a path that surrounds us in darkness? Many would say we wouldn't be able to walk on a path where there is no light or that there would be no way we would make it to the end of that path. Some may go one step further and say we simply fear the unknown. Let us take for example a blind man with his cane. If we were to take him to a path where there is darkness and no light he would be able to walk in the darkness without the fear of anyone or anything. His trust isn't with his cane but rather his trust is with God.

We don't need the light to guide us instead we need our faith in God. His gifts are present throughout our lifetime. He is there in every step we take. All we need is to trust him, and when we do, we can go a long way.
