We are delighted to have Nourah Abdulla back with us with a brand new poem for our Crime theme! We hope you enjoy her piece titled “Is It A Crime?”
Is it a crime
To hide from big words
That are larger than you?
To run away from feelings
That are wider than you?
If that’s the case,
Cuff me now and lock me up.
I cannot handle what I don’t know.
I cannot manage what I can’t understand.
So I’ll stay in this prison cell quietly,
Hoping for light to guide people,
To take their negativity
And sentence it the death penalty.
