Poetry by Farah Lawal Harris

It’s Funny

it’s funny how
people mirror us more than we ever know;
it’s funny how
if we don’t ever cry, our spirits die and we don’t grow.
it’s funny how
our words to some act as seeds;
it’s funny how
what we want differs from what we need.
it’s funny how
friends you think will always be there sometimes disappear;
it’s funny how
when you’re at your lowest, your family is near.
it’s funny how
you can go from being so happy to being sad;
it’s funny how
people leaving your life isn’t always bad.

    “our words to some act as seeds’…I agree with this immensely.This is why I dont believe in ‘stick stones break bones but words wont ever hurt you’ bc WORDS do hurt, words have power.

  3. It’s been way too long. I agree with you, people are funny and often do the strangest things. Which means life is always interesting,
