She Lives on Forever-

She Lives on Forever-

She is not a writer,
Or trying to inspire;
In fact if you ask her-
She is in need of inspiration.
But they judge from her writing,
And they think that she’s broken;
And the words filled on paper-
Are of a heart that’s been bleeding.
And she grins at their gossip,
When she hears them in whispers;
Writing is not a weakness,
It’s a strength conferred to her-
By laws beyond understanding,
Of those who dwell In ignorance.
So They keep to their gossip,
Being stuck in the same spiral;
But she does keep on writing,
Traversing writing boundaries;
And her name makes the papers,
And she lives on for centuries;
While the bones have been decayed-
Of both her and the gossipers;
that’s the strength of her writing,
That she lives on forever.

      1. Haha, thanks PJ. Yeah, i think it’d be fun too. It will be the first time i plan on going through a poetry class. I am not a fan of the technicalities, and usually quit after the first assignment. Maybe we can motivate each other πŸ˜‰

      2. I really like your poetry, Ameena. It flows so well and it always settles in my mind even after I’ve finished reading it.

        P.S. I signed up for Writing 201 Poetry too! I guess I’ll be seeing you around the Commons ^_^

  2. Such wonderful and true lines Ameena…The true story of every writer I guess ..and I love the last lines in particular.
    .’While the bones have been decayed-
    Of both her and the gossipers;
    that’s the strength of her writing,
    That she lives on forever’.

    I am sure your writings too will be etched for eternity.. πŸ™‚
