He Wasn't a Coward But a Voice Drawing Ears on His Body || Yahuza Abdulkadir


 Yahuza Abdulkadir

that boy who broke

a bottle of sniper into his mouth

wasn't a coward

he was just tired of romancing

the word "I'm okay"

while shirts of depression

are clothing his blood

tell me — when grief grew

wings on his shoulders —

did you stop them from flying with his body?

he was a sad poem

in the eyes of his readers

but they couldn't see that every line

in the poem came from the stanzas

running in his broken veins

and yesterday he chose to answer

the voices calling him to find rest in

the sands of silence
