Sorry for the long hiatus everybody! I have so many new and exciting ideas planned for this blog - just be a little more patient while I get these college apps out of the way and then I can finally focus on blogging again! I have lots of things to update you on; some good, some bad but in the meantime I wanted to share with you guys the first ever poem I wrote for my best friend on her birthday.
Sixteen year old Urooj had so much anger and sadness inside of her, she had all of these feelings and didn't know how to deal with them so she turned to poetry and writing. I remember trying to work up the courage to share this- the simplest of pieces - with my friends and family. I never thought I'd make it this far - from getting my work published in magazines, to setting up my own blog, to performing at a spoken word poetry event.
2016 has been so kind to me. I hope sixteen year old Urooj is proud.
