Daily Prompt: Fierce

via Daily Prompt: Fierce

If you meet me

under the skin you’ll remember.

If you hear

past this tempered timbre

of my voice

listen close.

Should you find yourself on the wrong side of ignorant.

Should you lose your footing

stumble into some flagrant


I cannot promise the facade will hold.

When the core of who I am


to be told who what and how I am

by you.

You who are a speck

on a drop of water

in a storm barely begun.

This storm is Fierce.

This storm

was started years ago

some thoughtless steps and words and eyes

some fool who knows my truth is lies.

There is only one truth

And I am its slave.

Abdul Haqq

In Sha Allah

Till my End of Days.
