Poetry has fueled humanity for as long as time has existed. It is the simplest form of communicating the complex feelings brought by current society’s trends. Although, some trends have remained consistent. From love to angst to fear, it is continuously present. This is why we publish poetry by Latina poet, Sawhney.
Her poems give us a glimpse at what may be running through her mind — and more often than not — many others resonate with her poetry.
Dive into one of her recent poems, Eternal Cycle:
I have words
and I have concerns
and I have undiluted fears
that waited to be proved right
that wait to be wronged
I have a ferocious drive
that hums in the background
and I hold a silent strength
that works throughout the night
I have hands that mold life’s clay
and eyes to see a future past
the draft in progress
I am designed
by ancestral wisdom
by dynamic bursts of inspiration
I am more than just flesh and spirit walking this earth
I play my part
in my eternal cycle:
in bloom today,
preparing for my rebirth tomorrow.
