Shirley Shikanda Poems

  • 1.  
    They think soon I will be back to the streets
    This thing about loving God
    Dressing like I want to be adressed not undressed

    Everytime I trust and they lie
    Everytime I hold on and they say good bye
    Everytime I reach out and they give me no chance

    Look up to the sky my darling
    They make the dark night beautiful
    The way you do when my day is blue
