Kazi Maisha Poems
'Daddy, I Love You'
'Daddy, I...' Shut up by hard labor for the night, my child says bye That's when I take off my mask Worn to show my child I'm strong-as if my tears are stored in a cask
We Better Watch Our Mouths (Hello)
One word has the power to do so much Make you happy, sad, angry, and such What's this word after all? Well, it's 'hello'
A Message To All Bullies
Holding the power to lock a happy heart in a black chained box A box that may never be unlocked Leaving the bodies of the stolen hearts to be crippled Only insinuating darkness in the crippled bodies
My Unapproved Love For Chocolate
Momma says chocolate is bad 'Don't make your teeth mad! ' I say chocolate is good 'After all, for my frail and skinny body, it's food! '
I Am Who I Am
I am who I am I don't wear jewelry to be like one of them I don't keep up with the trends to be like one of them I don't act cool to be like one of them
Were We The Same?
Time To Get Up
I tend to shut people out Been put to doubt Left to kick by a few sadistic other But now I don't let that bother
On Behalf Of Barbies
Do I look like some toy to play with? A random toy with no feelings? Just because I have power To stand up, smile, and let the despised cower
Taking Off The Doll Mask
Many are out there who seem to be perfect, like dolls Blinded by the 'many's' fake smiles and unshattered faces Yet, their flaws have been overlooked- their falls Smiling happily in all places
The True Worth Of Quotes
I was once told that reality is much different from quotes That life ain't no to-be fairytale, it's a drowning boat Well, I want to know then how were quotes made Did all wise quote-sayers make their dreams said?
Our True Friend
Shadows which seem immortal Makes darkness look like our close friend All the smiles in once active faces now fades into woebegone ones And the present insinuating hope is diminishing
Remember that shy girl Who looked like she was lost in whirls Remember how that girl who always withdrew from the fun Resembling dark clouds that blocked the sun

'Daddy, I Love You'
Shut up by hard labor for the night, my child says bye
That's when I take off my mask
Worn to show my child I'm strong-as if my tears are stored in a cask
I try to believe I'm strong
My ears try to block out the times the Nazis sing their song
My feet try to veil the broken glass its walked upon
Only to show my the child the merciless monsters haven't won
Only for my kid
Yet, at times my cask of tears breaks it lid
This is when my child is asleep
The Nazis may have shaved my head, but follicles of pain still heap
God, I have ...
