This poem practically brought a tear to my eye, damn you woman! There are so many powerful and heart-wrenching lines in this.
with my hair tied because alive
my curls always hid my face
mostly, I think that my womb will remain intact
that it will dry up. won't stretch for any life.
I think, that the end will be tragically beautiful
that life after this one is a dream so good
people never wake up again
Just a few.
All I would say is that when you can convey your emotions so movingly and wonderfully, you have plenty to live for.
Take care and all the best,
ps. I will nominate this tomorrow; it deserves the front page.

Yakari, this is the rawest piece I have read for some time and I can totally understand how you feel because when life throws us in at the deep end we always feel like we're drowning in it. You always have a unique way with words, powerful.
Yakari, had me in tears.. I do love her writing, always have and this poem is incredibly raw and emotional. She knows how to get the reader. I have never read such a spirited, truthful and explosive poem to date, until now.. very powerful!
