The Cemetery

2018 (written by Aysha El-Shamayleh)

should death be the crucible of life Father, may I break a thousand times over in glory and grace, for he who I had come from has shown me the way

my sister and I touching base at my father’s resting place for the first time to pay respects before I go off on a writing retreat in his memory, may you rest in peace and power Ziad El-Shamayleh
