Intent

Pride worth everything
Beauty couldn’t be matched
Strength here to stay
Isn’t it enough? No, they say
insisting, brethren I fight
for their utter delight
to my absolute disgust
their vanity persists
they fight their own in cages
to whom’s entertainment I wonder
humanity surrenders
to its perverse lust for amusement

Memory

Suddenly a melodious tune I hear
Sound of heaven in my ears
Bringing back far away years
Childhood, grandfather, I
Listening to the radio,
Moments just fly,
Alghoza by Misri on air
Sky became clear
Birds would sing
Bells would ring
Joys it brings
Barns, golden lands
Wheat, working hands
More energy was found
All around, work quickens
Heart cleaned blood thickens
Suddenly the magic ceases
Record ends, pulse eases,
tears runs through my heart
Eyes long for one last look
If I can see all of it again
My hand holding his one finger
That memory lingers and lingers
His wisdom and fables
Our walk to stables
His talk and my babels
All gone, except that tune
Reminding me every moment
I spent, wisdom he lent,
Still carry me through this life
Thank you granddad,
I will see him in heaven
I just hope one exists
Because I miss him
Dearly…

Prayer of a young soul

Money grows on trees
No one sleeps on streets
Rich redistributes
Helping communities

Consciences are clear
Sapiens have a say
Government hears

No obscene wages
Humans have dignity
No fight in cages

Hard work is paid
Life is fair
Hope lives in masses
No despair

When nature strikes hard
Lives are lost
Humanity responds
Thick and fast

Armies disbanded
Wars not around
Nature cured
Food abound

Can we live
Without screams
of poor’s pains
I pray, I dream

An Angel’s envy

Looking at your dwellings
Houses and farms
Mind wonders
About the lives you live
Full of hope
Amazing skills
Then we come around
Good or bad news
Changing your views
Amending your fate
Habits you hate
Make you believe
Or devoid of faith
Bed of flowers
Mourning wreath
We live eternity
You, a moment or two
Still, that much happiness?
May we have it too!!

Gratitude

The night will pass,
appreciating each other’s
niceties, without telling
what our hearts
desire to say, relay
gratitude and affection
poetic satisfaction
deep reflection
Perhaps shallow
Mind mellows
I stop, recount
dismount passion
humble creation
and you

I do

Take my heart
it is for free
if in return I get thee
There is a contradiction
you realise
without me the deal
won’t materialise
free means nothing
in return you should ask
throw away the cloak
remove the mask
get down on your knees
and with passion task
sweetly, most humbly
present your heart
And that my dear
would be a good start
for our journey
which after few years
feel like eternity
bring down tears
Why o why
you went for the trade
life was much simpler
before that
Colossal
Gigantic
Humongous
mistake you made 🙂
