‘For Women Who Are Difficult to Love’ by Warsan Shire



For Women Who Are Difficult to Love
written by Warsan Shire

“…
and you tried to change didn’t you? 
closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
prettier
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.”

Last night I prayed for signs, affirmations, help. 
Today I discovered the words of Warsan Shire.

The power of prayer. The power of asking.
