DR. ASMA MOHAMMADI

Dr. Asma Mohammadi is a doctor, author (Soar Beyond Skies), writer, and poet living in California. Ever since childhood, her mounting interest in language was evident as she penned articles for school journals. Her profound fondness for poetry evolved growing up, and she began exploring her writing skills.

Her poetry has an essence of feminism, equality, mental illnesses, psychology, stress related disorders and many more such topics.

A compilation of rapture, despair, longing, self-love, triumph, and loss, her debut book ‘Soar Beyond Skies’ is a collection of poems chronicling the challenges of contemporary life such as inequality, social criticism, peer pressure, anxiety, depression, sexism, displacement, racism, objectification, breaking stereotypes and many more.

Smashing the shell of confinement and taking on the cliched perspectives, her book takes you on a journey that traverses the stagnant plains, the eye-catchy mountains, the winding roads and the pit stops in life.

It is split into seven sections namely sweet (joy), bitter (fear), sour (grief), salty (hope), insipid (apathy), spicy (ecstasy) and pungent (criticism). With flavors of practicality as well as fantasy, it engraves love on the minds reflecting on the vital aspects of life.

She delves into solitude life to offer elements of reality and bitter truth. Her life revolves around various components of living fearlessly, evading judgments and voicing opinions when needed.

Asma is an active poet and writer on her Instagram page dr.asmapoetry where she started unboxing her emotions three years ago for the world to read, feel and relate. She believes in the medicinal power of words, and her verses are meant to paint hearts with compassion, purity, and love. She enjoys playing tennis, designing greeting cards, traveling and creative writing in her leisure hours.

Two broken people fix each other

Like mirrored halves of hope put together

Heads Bowed Down

Glued To The Screen

What Do We Wait For?

What Does It Mean?

A Like, A Follow

A Share, A Comment

Is What’s Life About?

Is That All It Meant?

What Are We Expecting?

Where Are We Heading?

Will This Give Us Peace?

Lessen Our Hankering?

Mother

Cradled Me In Your Weary Arms

Shielded From Worldly Harms

An Iron Lady Glowing With Charm

Of Abundant Patience & Warmth

Toiled Everyday For My Bright Future

Like A Tender Bud Delicately Nurtured

Supported Me For Who I Wanted To Be

Strived To Bring Out The Best In Me

When I Feel I’m Clueless Of What I’m Doing

Your Faith In Me Always Keeps Me Going

What Role Has Any Friendship Got To Do?

When I’m Blessed To Have Everything In You

But Sadly, Whilst Growing Up As Our Lives Pace

Little Did I Realise You’re Starting To Age

When I Have It All Without You By My Side, It’s Only A Curse

For Your Sacrifices Can Never Be Put Down In A Verse

Not Spending Enough Time With You I’ve Committed A Crime

How I Wish I Could Steal Moments Going Back In Time

No Matter How High In My Life I May Fly

Under Your Feet My Heavens Come To Lie

Though We Live Thousands Of Miles Apart

You Hold A Sacred Place In My Heart

Now One Of the Only Wishes To My Lord I Ask

Is A Desire To Be By Your Side Till I Breathe My Last

Love

You May Tie My Hands

Yet I’ll Reach Out To You With My Heart

You May Fasten My Tongue

Yet I’ll Speak Love For You With My Eyes

You May Harden Your Heart

Yet I’ll Carve A Path To Tread On And Soften It

You May Shut Your Ears

Yet I’ll Let Tears Scream Love For You

You May Push Me Aside

But With Each Push, I’ll Pull You Closer

Please Don’t Look Away

Please Don’t Go Away

Please Just Don’t

Please Don’t

All I Have Is You

All I Ever Wanted Is You
