Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris

Discovery Haiku


my tongue has been bit

for so long that when i speak,

my own voice scares me.

  1. Oh…this I can so identify with…so many years that I lived with someone who constantly made me feel this…that’s over and I feel like your haiku when I speak now…thanks for this!
