This Jaded Winter

A cold, white
winter
Snow to my knees

Gloom and self-doubt.
So much self-doubt
So it was surprising when
it happened all at once

Because of this and this and that and this
And so many reasons I could never say
But in person
If you ask

I am so sorry.
will never
mean anything to you

Because you
have no idea

And I want to cry and
plead with you and
explain it all

But even then,
you
will
never
understand.

Today the sun
peeks through my window,
snow melts into watery nothingness
and flowers
begin to bloom.
So let your smile
blossom with
them

because spring is coming
Hope is here.

Don’t fret;
Allah will take care of you
it is Promised.
