I Wrote Them For You by Mariam Yusuf

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I Wrote Them For You is a bed of soft sighs. Delicate images and words contained in its brevity. The poems are painted with themes of faith, fleetingness, strength and love. I was acquainted with the author, Mariam, via Instagram of course, back when her poetry book was still in the works. She supported me when I launched my self-published poetry book last year, so now’s my turn to support her, and I must say her work is a gem. I’m jealous that she can pen poems in the beautiful Arabic language! What a gift. Worth a read if you enjoy poetry by Najwa Zebian, Nayyirah Waheed and the likes. Mariam has a unique touch to her words and you’ll have to read it to discover. If you’d like a copy you can grab one for yourself here.
