Survival

Empty hands
Empty stomachs
How will we survive today
You are around
Luck abound
Let’s pass another day
Life’s perils
Will not matter
Together we need to stay

Another fallen hero

horizon sea unsettled
sun dives with mettle
fighting storm to hilt
Trying, failing, wailing
humanity’s shameful guilt
orange blood, despair, dismay
on a drowning, desperate day

Again

Another day another journey
decades have passed
since we last met
hearts were broken
souls were stolen
Why meet again
when all is set
Life, love, lust, trust,
Want to remember
the pain again
Want to be
Insane again
Emotions thunder
Rain again
I miss that
I miss you

Beauty of unwanted birth

when the pen of a poor poet
or a singer singing on the road
create flowers with
the most amazing smell
the most beautiful colour
fruits and berries
melting in the mouth
soothing all senses
past, present, all tenses
in a random unthought verse
unseen in the whole universe
even by the divine itself
she declares that
her unintended mission
to create humanity with
all its faults and absolute horrors
is accomplished
because of that moment,
unwanted children
became princes of the universe
for a random unthought verse

Rosary

Wine and prayer mixes
Destiny declares,
fate fixes
heart colour changes,
undermine jinxes
thoughts repeated
in fours and sixes
Till redemption

Here is a more rebellious thought:

Tasbeeh
Allah Hu, Allah hu
Haq
Allah Hu, Allah hu
Qalander declares
Breaking his beads
Dancing on his feet
Control not seen
for miles
Rosaries, prayers
Nothing sedate
My lord my mate
Fill my heart
With love
Remove hate
These fools with beards
Long robes, black or white
crosses, rosaries in their hands
They repeat and pretend
You belong to them
Rest of us be ashamed
for our sins and our deeds
In young minds and hearts
hatred they seed
Hypocrisy they lead
Nothing they concede
Such closed hearts
Where to end
Where to start
Qalandar, the mad
Uncontrollable
dancing
Darwish I follow
Rest is just a game
Shallow and hollow
Allah hu, Allah hu
Haq
Allah hu, Allah hu

Echo

I cried at the top
of the mountain
Lament my grief
for a beautiful thief
Valleys heard the tears
returning echo
called my name
Not the one I know
‘deep sorrow soul
we know who stole
your heart and burned
Soul has turned
from light to dark
Life without spark’
your remedy
forget tormentor
find a mentor
your focus, your centre
for soul healing
no more steeling
Just warm feeling
to return when its time
