To me poetry is a way of re-inventing myself, cleaning myself from the dust of lethargic feelings. Happy to be back after a long break. Have missed you so much

A poet must write often

As otherwise his soul

Shall get as dry as a bone

While his mind is filled

By shadows of emptiness

Reducing him nothing

More than a den of ineptness

Where indifference and apathy

Take charge at full swing

Like snakes in an abandoned well

Welcome back. It certainly does help to write about it to help get it off one's chest.

In your case, the problems are huge, but hopefully, not insurmountable. There will be peace someday in Somalia.
