In Our Misfortune . . .

I remember when I met you in the house of terror

Of what you gave me and surrender to me.

In those moment in which the light was a dream or a miracle.

However, you were the light among the darkness.

We were as one in our misfortune.

Today,after thousands of misfortunes more.

I can see you, as I did then, always looking forward.

We will see each other again through the fog that we will disperse.

Do not forget comrade.

[ Muriel Dockendorff Navarrete ] Chilean Poet,Lyricist and economics student 

Notes: Currently I read the book ‘Tortured Truths’ by Rahnuma Ahmed. Love to read this book and I think it’s a great collection to me.Book cover photo: Shahidul Alam
