M Y O P I A
by Majd Khiami
"The day I left my parents’ house,
I choked up on my own breath during my sleep.
I probably had a panic attack that I don’t recall.
And I can’t believe that freedom would cost me so much anxiety."
Myopia is a self-written journey that is portrayed through prose, poetry, and short quotes. It is in a reversed timeline fashion that will take you on a backwards journey till you reach the ending which actually marks my beginning. It is with utmost pride that I admit that writing cured my myopia and I realized through my journey, that glasses are to myopia what poetry is to my heart. This book is a yield of six years of work and it is my most valuable possession, and I hope that it’ll be yours as well.
