A Rusted Heart
By Shanzay S.
Am I that invisible as a Muslim woman?
Stillness is the most radical form of activism
Five years later, I stand inside an answered prayer.
Direction is more important than speed
Flowers can bloom where mountains have burned || resilience
I am afraid of failure
Are you becoming the type of person you want to become?
Light the flame||reclaiming spaces
Where their voice still sounded like they loved me
To Karachi, with love.
Learning to crawl in my tangled web of faith
The tinted vision of grief|| a blessing in disguise.
Did you know friendships have the ability to extinguish borders Tasalli Se?
Big Shoes. Small Shoes.
I got comfortable being sad...
