Self, micropoetry written by Raeesa Usmani at



written by: Raeesa Usmani



Self needs darkness
to come fore.

A veil to real.

Hidden is not always precious
It can be scary.

The undercover self
is ambiguous.

True self reveals
amongst the less fortunate
the most appropriate victims
the Soft Targets
with No Voice.
