It’s Gonna Be OK!©

These are not words to say

By lips, it’s a statement

I affirm to make it happen

By deeds and toiled actions-

A claimant.  In a country

Where citizens have rights

Things may go wrong, but

Eventually, it’s going to be

Alright.  After all, it was

said that : “the most important

Office in a democracy: Citizen.

THE TREE & THE SEA©

THE TREE & THE SEA©

On a hill, there is a tree

Extending its boughs towards the sea

Yearning for what she cannot reach.
I heard it moaning with
The wind shaking with grieve.
Turning upward away from the soil,
Away from the roots that has been
Her shelter for years.
And the sea?  The sea never heard
Her moaning, never heard of her grieve.

The agony sculpted her tortured

Figure as she stands
Oblivious to her friends,
The caring sun and the loving rain-
Gently sustaining her with care,
Attentively showering her with love.

Falling Men and Cosmic Dust©

Falling Men and Cosmic Dust©

It this world that we live in with all its chaotic disorder, we may feel anxious and have difficulty apprehend a future that is prosperous or safe.  The atrocious massacre of civilians in Aleppo, terrorism, racism and nationalism that seems to be on the rise world wide-all are sore bleeding wounds that shatters our sense of equilibrium and threatens our sense of humanity.

The following words came to my mind:

Have you seen the dark shadow?

Numerous reports confirmed,

All over the globe, of a hollow

Dark smoky mass discerned

To be increasing in size and

Weight on the human chest

Upon encounter.  Sadness,

Sorrow feelings that grow

Within, whenever this object

Flow upon the horizon.

It continues to cause destruction,

Chaos, and despair.  It is in the air,

Polluting our water, deforming our

Spirit, crushing our soul…within and

Wherever it landed.  Piercing shrieks

Are heard precede its arrival spreading

Terror. Humans are forced to their knees,

Covering their ears, void of humanity.

Everyone run for dear life, void of intellect

Or rational thinking.  Hearing no logic,

Listening not to reason.  Feet crushing bodies

As they run away blinded by fear and darkness-

Scattering in horror like wild beasts.

Nations upon nations have succumbed

To defeat-no survivals.  Except those

Who flee, leaving behind memories of

Happiness destroyed & crumbled.

Masses have tried to assemble with candles,

Courageous hearts, extended hands, and hope to

Defeat this Dark Hollow Shadow.  Their light

Was not strong enough, their hearts were not courageous

Enough,their hands were trembling, and the hope was crushed.

Years and years went by, and the darkness increased and persisted.

Down beneath the ashes, a flicker of light had survived.

A child, an innocent being, not yet corrupted by the Darkness-noticed

It and removed the ashes.  Many hearts, souls, and hands were extended

Towards it.  As one man, they all moved towards the light to protect it.

They tended to it with unity and love until it grew and grew to resemble the hope

That was crushed long ago.  Together they hold the light up towards darkness,  Guided and strong they marched.

Their cheers shook the land, their words echoed throughout the globe:

“Divided no more, divided we have fallen and fallen.  United

Now and always, we stand.”

Delusion©

Delusion©

quranic

The years went by

And my heart was turned away

From feeling the sun rays

And hearing the birds in the sky.

More years gone by and my heart

Was still numb.

It was yet bumping, beating, and

Making me alive but not living.

The only thing I can feel is the pain.

The only memory I have of him

Is of a phantom in my dream

Visiting me one last time

before he was gone.

What was reality is now no more.

Illusion, a trap, don’t be fooled

By the delusion of this life.

Soon I will be gone too.

A Remedy of Words!©

A Remedy of Words!©

The words are hammering

Humming loud and persisting

To be let out.  Hauling a heavy

Load of thoughts and feelings.

Say it right.  There is

Doubt?  Will they be misunderstood?

Will they sound appealing?

Come forth, say the truth.

Speak your mind, I say.

How else you would be heard?

Mind your words, say it gently.

Be kind.  Articulate and then,

Those wonderful words you

have carefully said, will be your healing.©

What is a Home?©

What is a Home?©

images

What is a home?

Is it a building of woods and stones,

A place you call your own,

and fill it with furniture?

What is a home?

A property you claim?

An address that has your name,

A location on a map, a dwelling

you share with family members?

No, that is simply not a home.

That is merely a resident,

An occupancy, a retreat.   That is called

A house with just a number,

A zip code, a building on some street.

But what makes a house a home?

Is it the memory that you keep

In a drawer or on a shelf?

Or is it a trinket, an antique

That ornate a corner?  I wonder!

What is a home?

It is that cinnamon smell

From the apple pie that was

just baked fresh and sizzling

Out from the oven.  It is the warm hearth

Family and friends all  gather

Around, and the air is full of laughter.

A home is a life that we build,

Brick after brick of solid

Dreams, lost and found

And lived as reality.

It is a territory, a privacy

That we own sacred right for,

A sense of belonging.

It is a garden that we tend

With our sweat and love,

Until it grows and bloom.

A home is the roots that run

Deep and strong, anchor and

Shape our lives.©

On a Wing of a Bird!©

On a Wing of a Bird!©

 

On a wing of a bird

A twinkle of a star

On a ruffle of a wind

Our life goes by.

No matter how we cling,

No matter how high we reach,

How far we can go,

How much we collect,

Or how hard we try.

The moment will flee,

And there will be only

One print, one dint we left

On the fabric of time.

And then we are gone.
