Words So Overrated

Kulsum Afia is my pen name. I am currently doing my MD residency. I write only on topics that inspire me. Hope you enjoy my work !

Words, so overrated.

To express the loved and the hated.

Sometimes eagerly awaited,

No meaning when belated.

So much to say,

The black, the white and the grey,

Maybe someday,

When the veils betray.

Eyes speak,

Yet to need to hear,

Not everyone is a seer,

Reassurance we need.

Maybe overrated, them the words,

But ask someone who waits,

Like the autumn tree and the birds,

For the direction of the winds to change.
