Abdirashid Abass Diis
My sacred city
It is good and fair
Where the love will reach at its hard just to hold yours.
A place where every night you could go and feel completely safe.
A place where everyone is welcome and that will always care.
The smell of romantic candles and crock pot dinners fill the warm air inside ,this is a place
The welcoming(hellos) and how was your day?
Occupy the living room the loud sports announcers and actors on favourite sitcoms
Can always be heard on the television.
The plush furniture and pillows will be calling out your name to come join them
In comfort the place that will never fail and hopefully you don’t step on
The cats tail. A place where being your self is a motto engrave.
A place that tough religion to know and love Allah was must to worship
A place where prayer was praised and bad behaviour war lame. A place where mom and dad
Are always there no matter what they care. The place to be sister was so cool although sometimes its challenging like school the place I call My favourite its not what you might be thinking but its always be the best place no matter what goes or to unlock the golden door of a freedom.
It’s a place where respect and politeness plays great role where by selfishness its permanently
And restricted the place I was raised with the best parent in the world.
And the place where my sister was the best friend I have ever known.

MY BLESSING PLACE
I would live in a place that will never come across the brain of a mankind.
A world that the breeze of the weather cherish life every time ,
a place where trees is like jungle and entertains anyone
a place where every wildlife finds areal habitat
a place where any mammoth landing safe and sound
a place where reaping is like swallow
place where ghee is not butter and is like streams.
A place where torrents come one after another
where appearance as fascinating as the peacock.
A world where nostalgia is normal to any mind.
where love ,caring , appreciation , respect and keeping in
Touch with others is my favourite place to live .
A place where wetness of soil is like the wind of the day .
My favourite place is where no chaos no violence no dark era can ever came into.
My favourite place is where no fraud no despising no racism
Is a welcome but only peace prosperity and blessing has a room.

My riverine town.
What I like is maize, water melon, tomato
camel milk was my food
It’s very common to see crocodiles
once docile and now disobedient
Cows, goats and sheep took pleasure in the greenery
then again the spike and the panicle celebrate their lose and departure
no meat and the milk
No more the Tuna and the Tilapia
rains were recurrent washing away the dead woods
Monkeys that had reverence for the riverside now mourns miserably
The morning sun stayed glamourous as the midnight moon remained dazzling reflected in the water surface.
There is no more of what has been plenty
Provision that quenched our thirst and killed our hunger.
Mahat Abdalla Mohamed
MY GHOST CITY.
It has been a place where everything was good and people helped each other
there was respect for the old and the weak, and love for women and children.
It was a place where anyone who encounter will never forget
pleasant, beautiful, and secure.
Everything plenty and business boomed
but now a place of panic,
a commonplace for death and darkness
only grief-like sound can be heard in the middle of the night
as if the slain and the demon are fighting for revenge
groans and distant cries stealing the still of the night
the dead and the living difficult to tell apart at night
baffling to discriminate between Maryan the late and Moge the neighbour
as if the living is accountable for something and paying the price before the day of doom
it is customary to play with the dead at night
and it is ordinary to sleep, eat, drink and hang out with the deceased
They call for many things, they call for the thunder and the storms
they call for the eclipses they call for everything
the wind and the rain commemorates their soul
everything the same at night
in asleep, in dreams or staying fully awake.
