By Imam Sarafadeen
I want to write a poem That sees the world and all In and out, to say it all, a poem That will touch and guide a life of short and tall I want to say what my mouth couldn't say What hurts and hurts yet it gives me a way To express it, and which is this, A building that speaks out my inner mind To let you know my secret and the me kind I want to give this heart of mine, a motivation From I and not just a conversation. Speak! To cool this heart of mine Free it from anxiety and sign I want I to tell this heart that, Rome wasn't built in a day Tell it to be patient like a cat For that, it will later find a way.

I like how your rhyming verses enhance and don’t detract from the story you are telling with you poem, Imam. Well done!
Thank you, sir
