The umbilical cord

by Sanjida Shaheed

Bismillah

You want
To be lifted.

Higher
And higher.

Yet you are afraid
To let go.

The known and
The comfortable
Drags you down.

To the ground
Where gems sparkle.

Only to lure you
To stay.

What lies beyond
Is beyond
Your wildest dreams.

Cut the umbilical cord.

What nourished you
Once is now
Binding you.

To a place where
You do not belong.
