Us immigrant kids
will always be
too Eastern for the West,
and too Western for the East,
our identities will forever remain
in disarray.

My aunt sent over so many new baati’s from Somalia, and I obviously called dibs in the best ones. I love my family in Somalia




So precious

Ibn al-Qayyim, Madaarij as-Salikeen (Ranks of the Wayfarers), 2/338. (via alongcamenad)
Whoever has offended you and then approached you to apologize, humility obligates that you accept his apology whether it is truthful or not, and that you leave his secret thoughts to Allah. The sign of generosity and humility is that if you notice a defect in his apology, you do not address it nor hold him against it.

When people say ‘This is my baby,’ they don’t always mean a baby. Sometimes they mean a dog.

You asked me
“Who is your favourite poet?”

and I smiled and
told you

For he created heaven and earth,
my eyes that are able to
look upon your smile.

For he put speech in
my lungs, and faith
in my heart.

What writer can ever
hope to surpass that
kind of beauty?

- The worlds only poet

Mandeq Ahmed ‘inner clouds’ (via blackorchidd)

I always loved the rain
you can cry
you could scream

Who could tell the difference
the salt and air
on your face?

The wails from the sky
and the one from within?
