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

Dr. Asma Mohammadi is an Indian doctor, 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 to. 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
