Marzieh

The world may be crooked
My spine bent
But my will is unshaken
This I’ll defend

My bones may be weak
My legs fail to hold me
But my spirit burns incessant
Reminding me I’m free

I was birthed in tragedy
My days a countdown to die
But I was meant for better things
It’s left to me to try

The setbacks many
I hold my yearning’s close
With all that’s been taken from me
My cup overflows
