One day I am a scholar

And the next I am a disgrace

Sometimes I sit quietly

And other times I burn

You would wonder is this the same woman

I am layers of trauma

And lifetimes of pain

I am every joyful moment you have experienced

I am the first time your toes touched the shore

You will come here curious

And you will leave broken

    Found your blog by the way of random searches on the internet from the Austrian Empire to somehow Afghanistan and wow this moved me. Pretty weird but I feel that’s life. Anyways keep writing.
