Unbroken by Sumaiya Vawda

Poem

I let the clouds collide;
crashing in silence
Shards float down
to become a kitten’s toy

I don’t clog the bleeding
of the children of Syria,
my body is not an oasis
to suffice Yemen

I shall tear you open
Methodically
And once my inspection with benefit is had
I shall devour you
Ruthlessly

Don’t label me a surgeon or a cannibal;
only a pit with a soul
ready to leave the world
Unbroken
