What would you say if the only treasure you have in life is what Anonymous calls the Mighty Pen? “The color [of the ink] doesn’t matter because appears on paper has strength,” she said. “It’s a normal pen but it has strength. Give a real picture of my life.”
Migrant Tales has been in touch with Anonymous for some months. She is in an institution in Finland diagnosed with paranoia. She disagrees with the diagnosis. Her beautiful poetry speaks volumes about her plight and that of other migrant women.

Moment in time
The mighty pen is dense
In an assimilated sense
Becomes an immigrant victim defense
Of a true story untold
Of the scope in magnitude in lens
Is trampled on the answer from whence
And covers the origin of a feud so immense
Which came to a boil for consecutively four years hence.
We are bound by a culture of disbelief so intense
Drugged us into the irony of democratic society
Where law prevails to fence and provide a shed and protection
For the vulnerable when entices hence
Never been envisioned by those who believe in the rule of law itself
But Drawn along is the will to ensconce as seeing is believing doesn’t make sense
No longer sufficient the offset the wrong so dense
Facing us in the agony of grave abuse of the law condense
Harassment on scale that has never been experienced hence
By any immigrant women in vivid detail so intense.
