Poetry from Sabrid Jahan Mahin

Young South Asian teen boy with a white collared school uniform shirt and short brown hair.
Sabrid Jahan Mahin
Across The Rift

We constantly try to go across the rift
If only we get accepted by the hand
Our land is green but still we leave
Moving over to find greener pasture

If there were no airplanes
Some would go across on bare feet
To a place the mind paints as good
Risking the quotidian lives in a desert.
