  1. Yes! In just five words you summed up a solution to the hell that torments many of us these days. We each have our own form of ‘poetry,’ just a matter of finding it and using it as a shield against depression. Thanks, Yassy.

  2. for me, just my experience, i just save myself. sometimes, often, it is with poetry – sometimes with dark humour, but even if i don’t capture the moment there are many times when poetry answers more questions than anything else can – i just wish in all those moments i had written it down, but in the moment it works and sometimes i manage to get it out for others to see.

    i love that others do the same. it doesn’t always translate to ones context, but it doesn’t have to, and with an open mind, i am always better for reading poetry. i am sure that most will never understand how much their sharing has been to the benefit of others …

    1. I visited your blog , Nadra. You have a beautiful blog. I can’t read Urdu very well. I go alphabet by alphabet if you know what I mean. But I am sure what you write is heartfelt and wonderful.. more ink to your quill.

  3. It saddens me to read this poem Yassy yet it gladden me to know your writing works the oracle, your poetry is a blessing in more ways than you’ll ever know an influencer for those who suffer upsets in life. I don’t be here as often these days so forgive me for only occasionally catching up.
