Poetry offering from  Sultana Raza


I struggled to
Break out
Of the dream,
But everything
Remained just as it was
Until it made no sense
To change anything
For walls are stronger
Than heads
Which butt against them

So I turned inwards,
Upon myself....
Which changed everything
As in imperceptible ways
I found new ways to
Deal with the dream

Even ending myself
Would not have done it,
For the struggle was
The whole point!

The On-Going Dream
