This lightheaded feeling

It’s this feeling.
This lightheaded feeling.
The feeling of emptiness and disappointment.
The feeling that frequently flickers through your ear,
constantly reminding you that you are not good enough…
that you never be good enough. You can try and try and but yet never good enough.
you isolate yourself from the world in hopes of finding something better,
a better version of life, and sometimes a new identity.
“Close your eyes,” you say to yourself softly while the warm tears flow down your cheek,
but unfortunately that’s not the case. you open your eyes and yet you’re still living,
still breathing, still, you are YOU!

Be kind to yourself ‘Allah will heal everything!

Poetry by Azmina Anwer Khan.
