Aisha Alansari (May 12th 1999 / Qatar)
There are moments in life where I just close my eyes..really hard,
Stop the tears from streaming down cuz I'm sick of being torn apart,
Im not a robot you know?
I have feelings, I have a heart.
Every time I try to smile..
I just can't,
Every time I try to gain my strength,
I just can't stand,
I'm always falling my on knees and my face burried into my hands,
I'm not a robot you know?
I'm human, I have feelings, I have a heart.
I'm sick of being pushed down by a hammer like a nail,
I'm sick of you making comments over the tinniest things like my nose or my hair,
You know what? It ain't fair.
I don't even care, anymore,
So whatever you have in store..
Keep it in your pie hole.
I'm in the process of building a house, a shelter that'll keep me happy and safe,
Every time I put a brick on top of another..
You come and break everything and make a mess in my place,
Try to ruin my work again, I'll stuff your eyes with cement,
Oh sweet sweet revenge.
I'm not afraid anymore..
Im not a little bird anymore..
I'm a lion, I roar,
You push me down, I get back up,
Remember I'm not a robot,
I'm human, I have feelings, I have a heart,
But not only that, I have soldiers by my side,
Prepare to die.
Keep in mind, I'm human and so are you,
Whatever you can do, I also can,
Remember, I ain't no freak.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
I'm sick of being pushed down by a hammer like nail: I'm sick of you bringing me down.
Building a house, a shelter: my confidence (cuz confidence keeps you more safe and happy like home)
Bricks: little pieces of confidence (like when you gain confidence it goes step by step like bricks, one by one)
Soldiers: my friends and family (or just the people close to me)
I'm a lion, I roar: I'm strong /brave (something like that) I can speak up
