Sadness St.

by Mohamed Khalid

This work appears in Khabar Keslan Issue 1. DISORIENT

To be happy, you must experience sadness.
We need to learn to be sad
in order to know and appreciate
happiness in our life;
or else be numb and unaware.

As a country, have we experienced enough sadness to have
a happiness street? Or have I, on the country’s behalf?
