Musings of a troubled mind

Updated on December 27, 2016

Kulsum Afia is my pen name. I am currently doing my MD residency. I write only on topics that inspire me. Hope you enjoy my work !

The helplessness, the hopelessness,

The uncertainty of the times ahead.

The looking back at memories,

And reminiscing old times.

Feels like just yesterday, yet it has been a year,

They haven’t stopped flowing, them the tears.

Time heals all wounds they say,

But it has been more than a year and a day.

It has been pushed to the back of the head,

Because I need to prepare for things ahead,

But all it takes is one slip of mind,

And I start dwelling into memories, Oh so divine.

You need to forget about people who forgot about you,

What then remains the difference between you two?

The multitude of emotions felt,

The helplessness, the hopelessness,

The uncertainty of the times ahead.

The grief, the sadness,

The trying to be hopeful regardless.

The unending wait, the wavering of the gait,

So many many emotions aplenty,

Yet somehow the paper remains empty.

      Another poem, here, that gives voice to my very own experiences! It is as if I could have written this, myself. So far, these poems I have read from you express my own life.

      Very nice! I like the way the rhymes work and how it's all relevant to the main story/point. Great job, very promising.
