One of the best poems ive read. Loved every part of it! It touched me alot. I could relate, it makes me feel like why have I trusted people why have I ever cared about people? I just hate how I feel and I feel Iam in my own prison of my soul. I thought I was the only one who felt that way.
Thanks for writing it how it is. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who wears a mask maybe not for the same reason but it's the point. You really do understand. It feels like you the only one who understands. I know exactly how thuis feel's. Being locked up[ in your own mind.

It hurts. God bless. I liked this poem it really got to me. It like described me and what im going through! This is one of the best poems I've seen. I know exactly the feeling of having a timebomb inside but not letting others see it. I've felt this way for a few years and no one even has a clue. Life really is a prison when you feel that way. It's something many people can relate to, I was amazed at how I saw my own thoughts in their poem.
All I can say is keep writing, and keep it deep. I really enjoyed your poem! I know what its like having to deal with depression and i find it so awesome when i see other people writing about how they feel about it like me. I know what its like feeling there is no hope and that you should just give up, but never allow yourself to think that, God made you for a reason , you just have to find out that reason.
But please know your poem was awesome and that there are people like me who understand. Just try to keep your head up and keep looking forward! I love this poem because this is how I feel all the time. I wish I made this poem because it's really awesome. All I can say is WOW. Wow, as I was reading your poem I found myself nodding. It's good to know that poetry is not a lost art.

Nov 13, Fionnuala added it Shelves: poetry , translated-from-persian. Are you geared up for a weekend of rest and relaxation with nothing more serious in mind than choosing which wonderful volume you're going to release from your pile of books, perhaps that favourite writer you feel is certain to help you while away your free time blissfully?
Your weekend is going to be much more active than that?
But people pay to have them done all the same Other people simply sit on the hot stones of a little courtyard under the blazing sun or the freezing rain, their feet soaking in natural mood baths. Mahvash Sabet is one such person. She sits in a prison courtyard when she is allowed, and stares at the little patch of sky above the high walls and the barbed wire, dreaming of her children and all the other people she knew and loved, perhaps remembering a tasty meal she shared years ago with her family.
Mahvash Sabet is a prisoner of faith being held unlawfully in a prison in Teheran. Today, November 15th, is Day of the Imprisoned Writer. The Day of the Imprisoned Writer was inaugurated thirty three years ago by PEN International, a non-political organisation founded in and dedicated to promoting literature and freedom of expression throughout the world.
You can help the cause of the many imprisoned writers throughout the world by sending an appeal on behalf of the five imprisoned writers being highlighted by PEN International this year. Alberto Manguel and many other writer members of PEN International have lent their support to this campaign. I hope that in the very near future we will meet in person, not only on the page. Her nomination was in the category 'International Writer of Courage: a writer who is active in defence of freedom of expression, often at great risk to their own safety and liberty.
