Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris


what if the heaven i am waiting for is already here?

what if i lived in today and yesterday wasn’t even near?

what if i loved freely?

what if i quit being unhappy?

what if poems became reality
and inner thoughts spoke clearly?

what if i truly honored me?
where or who
would i be?

    Wonderment is the fuel for poets, Farah. You have done well in your free verse in wondering/questioning….
