Diary of a Girl Away From Home

Take care of my house,

I left in it feelings of safety and security.

Don’t mess with my closet,

It has my clothes drenched with the smell of memories that no one else knows

And pieces of paper that have no value except to myself.

Don’t lift my pillow,

I hid under it my tears in times of sadness

And creatively created many dreams.

Don’t change the order of the books on my bookshelf,

On their pages notes I have written that no one will understand like I do.

As for my desk, don’t touch it,

But leave it with the mess I make while I study.

Please keep my traces in my beloved home,

I will be reunited with it soon.

-Fatimah
