Nostalgic

by Sanjida Shaheed

I was not thinking
Of the stars.
I was searching
For my roots.
The very beginning.
Yet the stars
Shone on a dark,
Clear night.

What stories do they tell?

Their light
Is their language.
Their words
Break a barrier
Inside me.
I’m transported
Back in time.

Perhaps
Only in nostalgia
Can I make sense
Of my own self.
