Can you Close? – A poem by studentasim

Can you Close? a poem by studentasim

You can open
But can you Close?
Do you remember when you started?
The difficulty
Even fear
But life progressed
Until you found yourself paralyzed
Caught in the middle
Started
But can’t Close
Ask Why?
Why be afraid of the Why?
Whatever
Self-medicate
Innovate
Meditate
Excuse me
Choices
Why don’t you always win?
If it’s honest
There are no losses
Push it
Think it
Shift it
Struggle
Rewire it
Close it…

In light of this recent article, Is Kingston (ON, Canada) racist? I will share a personal experience of trying to get my book “into” the Kingston Public Library.

Kingston Ontario Canada is like a “sacred” city for me because this is my roots in this country. A place where my father first came as a student to do his Masters in 1965 from #Pakistan.

Life is your teacher
Think
It was always about Process
As the train leaves
On it is something you own
The difference is a flash of a second
Why do you feel restricted?
Did you get back what was yours?
It could be gone forever
Think
It was always about Process…
