Poetry : Even When I Know by Nura Ahmad

I always tell myself that everything will be fine
Even when I know everything is not
I always tell myself that you’ll always be here
Even when I know you will not

I tell myself that you are just tired
Even when I know you are angry
I tell myself it is my fault
Even when I know it is not

I tell myself things will be different
Even when I know it won’t be
I tell myself you will change
Even when I know you will not

I tell myself it is time to go
Even when my heart says not to go
I tell myself the time is right
And yet I am still here, enduring the fight.

Dedicated to the women who could not leave the abusive men in their lives….the physical and verbal abuse will never stop…
