You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.


How long did you

stay alive

without breath?

Now rise up

from depths,

fully dressed alone.

Ghosts you chase

it has been shown, 

breathe deeply

breathe in slowly. 

Slowness on you

I will not force, 

it is known 

hearts in exile

turn to stone. 


Fever, fever, skin cold.

Blue lips, pulled in breath.

Ears new to own


Some want adventure,

few throw

caution to the wind.

Fewer breach the horizon. 


   

Whilst they grasp at Summer, 

one by one we let the seasons go.


Having walked 

hundred thousand 

mile walk, 

ten thousand thoughts 

written 

for one dream. 


Islam is not

the mother that neglects,

nor is it

the malnourished child.

It is not the father 

who strikes to deflect, 

nor is it innocence 

thought wild. 

Islam is not

the murderous brother,

nor the blood tie

for honour killing.

It is not

the voice to smother, 

nor a forced marriage

is it instilling.

Islam is not

one shunning

the other,

nor is it the 

disgrace of divorce.

It is not

the child molester,

nor is it sex

had by force.

Islam is not

the oppressor,

nor is it evil

of no remorse.

Islam is not
