By Margaret Sheard

LostYusuf Salih

Solve me do you dare

an abyss of turmoil, do I scare?

Come feel, if you see

with eyes and heart, if thine be.

Survive I do

with hope of life looking, looking but for who.

Need dissolves

years and tears flows.

Surrounded, alone, wandering soul

find me, stay my fall.
