Self-Portrait
Born and raised in Mogadishu.
One of the most dangerous cities in the universe now
Guns blasting, birds screaming
People running around
We got away from it
 
Now I am in the evergreen city
There is something that still remains in my mind,
My head screams with loud voices from the gun blasts
 
And I still remember the dead bodies
Memory of fleeing people and crossing rivers
Memory of gun men robbing people
 
Memories will never be the same
There is a good side and bad side in my country
