Danya Qattea Poems
My nose was made to hold glasses, my arms were made to hold books, The clothes I wear are ones I like, The classes I need I already took.
I Understand Why the Rose Weeps
Why, people ask, does the rose weep? Every morning, more tears fall. They fall and fall, the droplets falling in sudden bawl. But still they don't understand.
I'm over my head with water and ocean, Trying not to sink with wounds, Hang open. Beauty in a wave comes falling,
Staring at a White Wall
I'm staring at a white wall. The picture is already painted. I'm staring at a white wall. My curiosity? Never sated.
Wind blows through my spaceless dimension, The whole place huge But impossible to move in. Every thought is fighting
As I look up at the honey yellow moon, she looks back. She smiles at me, her face filling everything I see.
Hope for the Best
Everything is falling apart. I don't know what to do. Thoughts are chasing after me, as if stuck by glue.
Words spoken are not always forgotten, stuck in memory and remembered in beauty and ugliness. I have become a house, an ever present place of survival and birth of these words,
Late For School
People running in such a hurry. Snow falling in sudden flurry. People running against time. They are all pushing.
I'm at a crossroads, I don't know what to do. I am very rather depressed, Some would call me blue.
Imperfection is my Perfection
Imperfection is my perfection, so, therefore, wouldn't perfection be my imperfection? My thoughts dwell on this, until, with a sigh,
A Face at My Window
I glance out into the night. A face stares back, just in sight. It seems to be resting on the sill, I stop and look away when I get the chills.
A slightly burnt meal of bread and butter. A bridesmaid laughs. A dead man mutters. And all the while the bride is waiting.
Nails bitten through nervous habit. Children running as fast as a rabbit. Children laughing through nervous joy. Having stole a brand-new toy.

My nose was made to hold glasses,
my arms were made to hold books,
The clothes I wear are ones I like,
The classes I need I already took.
I am smart.
I do not talk or walk the same,
some even call me a freak.
I am smart.
I am tiny when compared to a jock,
and a silent face in a crowd,
you see, I don't talk.
And yet I am smart.
It is a gift they say.
It is an art.
And that's something everybody can do,
not just me or you.
