World’s riches, nations wealth
accumulated by fortunate few
Rest of us could lie and linger
Rest of us could die in hunger
Rest of us could sleep on the streets
Rest of us find food as a treat
Rest of us should wake up one day
Irony is, why it is not today!

Last mile

Long journey, on a winding road
Mood swings, pendulum moves
Reflects the scene been seen
Who are you with, where one has been
Drum beats, hearts pump
Jubilation and million songs
Want this journey to prolong
Sorrows of some when want to share
Eyes shed tears, melancholy you hear
Distances appear, too much, hard to bear
Tryst in mind, sparrows sing sweet
songs of longing, and impending meet
possibilities endless, fly on your feet
All such journeys end one way or another
destinations you reach, memories you gather
further and further, until reaching the last mile

Certainty

There is
no hiding from
or hushing death
Inhale it,
embrace it
Create a full circle
of life and ultimate destiny
Clock strikes twelve
Ready to delve
in secrets unknown

Brick by brick

Life’s foundation
Artist’s flair
Nothing emanates
from thin air
Fair and square
Will go miles
Cheat and steal
Cries and riles
Patience!

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…

Extremely handsome

beauty unparalleled
life extraordinary
still, sadness in soul
passions on dole
need a beautiful dream
with strawberries cream
to make you smile
for the next long mile
in life
