A poem by Maha Al Amead about self discovery
So many names, names I’m familiar with but no longer recognise.

I no longer have hate in disguise, nor do I have anger in my eyes.

I see the faces, that left behind no traces, only comfort in the form of spaces.

The days, where I craved grace, just because I felt I needed to catch up to everyone’s pace, are no longer haunting, no longer fearful, no longer there.

I have been freed, freed from their expectations, from the hesitation that watered my frustration.

Only left with myself to comprise.

My need to satisfy

And my dreams to thrive

I, can call myself “me”.

Maha Al Amead
Maha likes to put her feelings down on paper. She hopes to be a law student, just to see beyond the world of right and wrong.
