I need a place to live
-by Amira Rahim
I’m coming back from the UK
and I need a place to stay
Not just in Pittsburgh when classes begin
But in the world, too.
A place where I can be at peace
To be whatever part of me I decide to be.
You see, home is a social construct.
But that don’t mean I want to be homeless.
I’m looking for apartments
Prefer to live alone,
But not really alone.
Spirits connect across walls.
The heart knows no boundary.
This is a crappy attempt at poetry, by the way.
If anyone has any leads for a place for me to live in about a month, let me know. K? Thanks.
