and just like
the morning moon,
I’d weatheringly
still choose

Afiqah Mar 19
I love you
and this is all of what
lies deep within my very soul
I will ever write
about of you

and as we all shift,
and let go
and then slowly become,
always believe that
the world peculiarly
somehow still needs

I am a tiger and a fawn.
The she-wolf that screams to the moon at dusk
And the meadowlark that whistles to the sun at dawn.
I am darkness and I am light
Flipping my tangled hair to the cascading stars at night
Lifting my hands in prayer, releasing the morning birds to flight.
And I will protect them,
These birds of freedom.
I will carve their songs
Deeply into my heart
And set aside a space
Where the cruelty of this world
Cannot, ever, tear them apart.
So laugh the little children,
And sing your songs of glory,
You are safe
You are heard
And you are worthy.
With every fiber of my being, I will strive to protect what is sacred in this world, though anger and hate and violence and rage, seeks to tear us all apart.

there was love
there will be more
these clouds
of almosts
will finally someday
be made lucidly certain
with all of its
heartful intentions

it was fate that I have
this whole love affair thing
with words
and maybe this is where I find
its enoughness to know
that I have once laid here before
with you
and love luxuriously
had your very soul pinned on it

it can still epically hurt
to become
but sometimes,
you just got to have
to trust life
a little bit

Afiqah Sep 2018
I’m naming things like
hope and okay
and meeting courage
at its very edge
and that
every shade my scars
are being curtained and held through
each waking, purposeful day,
courts me to selflessly favor
every single
of my ******* pulse

go ahead
and will the sky
to turn dark again
if that is where
you mostly feel your soul
at its absolute hopeful self,
just keep breathing brave there
and bask in with your recklessness
then watch how the stars
brew its magic out for you

Afiqah Aug 2018
recommit to yourself
learn your place in this world
we can only micromanage
so much of our lives
through it all,
you are constantly becoming
and someday,
all of life’s intricate woes
will finally seem purposeful for you
