Poem: Life Puzzle by Nura Ahmad

It is an agony
to put this big puzzle together
to make it whole
to bind it strong

Picking up pieces
tracing its edges
staring into a fragment
at something familiar

Wondering if this piece
would ever fit anywhere
the past..
the present…
the future….
or is this just a fragment
of what could have been?

It is a puzzle to solve
of whom I was
of who I am
and whom I would want to be

As I lay down those pieces of puzzle
It became my life
….the rough edges
….the colourful cutouts
….the wear and tear of use
it is the bigger picture of a puzzle put together
