Sinopsis

Homebound is the debut collection of poems by Humairah Jamil, a Singapore writer.

During the author's Umrah trip in 2016, she revisited Mecca and Medina where time unspooled to twenty years ago — a young girl, a sacred mosque under construction, a circumambulation of different skins, and a faith she's yet to fully know how to carry. It felt like a homecoming and a bag of longings with no place to go.

The poems in Homebound are inspired by her revisit to the holy lands and her life journey which she has written and compiled over the years. As she navigates her emotions of love, loss, and hope through words, she finds herself coming back to the journey of experiencing the fleeting nature of this life and gradually learning that we are all homebound. 

We are all moving. Growing. Going.
We are all coming home.
For this life is a map
and this beautiful faith
has shown me the way 
that always
leads me
back
to You

Some of the poems is just very relatable. I really found myself reflecting a lot while reading this book and made me want to slow down in life. To appreciate the little things in life. "So have tawakkul(trust) in Allah's wisdom for the events that unfold in your lives and accept His decree."

"we're all in transit, waiting to board and depart home yet we build and beautify our transitory shelters, enclose ourselves in bell jars to keep away from the truth that lingers at the back of our subconscious till we are confused with what's real and what isn't"

LOVEEEE THIS COLLECTION OF POEMS SO SO MUCH!

it was intriguing that we can get hurt by someone then bounced back up when you don’t want it to control you with the help of Allah. Throughout the chapters in this book that is how the author describes it, to be able to navigate back to being in peace from the pain that you’ve been through. Overall I love the way she wrote these poetry that speaks to you ,would recommend to read and hopefully there will be a second book.
