A Few of My Favorite Poems by Nayyirah Waheed

unharm someone
by
telling the truth you could not face
when you
struck instead of tended.

— put the fire out (unburn)


listen to my poems.
but
do not look for me.
look for you.

— you


i don't pay attention to the
world ending.
it has ended for me
many times
and began again the morning.

when you are struggling
in your
writing (art).
it usually means
you 
are hearing one thing.
but
writing (creating) another.

— honest¦ risk
