Rest without peace

Deserts, dunes,
oases opportune
dawn bearable,
too hot at noon
walk run, walk run,
repeat and repeat
keep dodging death,
every hidden defeat
boundaries pushed far,
endurance to extreme
walking on the water,
nothing is what it seems
rest is no option,
sleep standing a while
too far still to go,
body and mind’s toil
destination is known,
let courage keep calm
soul will find peace in
redemption sand stormIMG_0056.JPG


No substitute

A long day, a hard day
It will pass, it won’t last
Keep hopes high, Let fate fly
Rugged, tired hands when stop
Universe reaches absolute calm
never lose hope, all is in your palm
Never, never, ever quit
In time, pains will remit
Hard work will absolutely pay
Keep faith my child, I hear divine say

Sweat runs, forehead to toenail
Time has stopped in sweltering heat
Chores get accomplished at the speed of snail
All muscles go, all systems fail
How much more do I sacrifice for this pittance!
An arm and a limb, a hit or a cut
Take your given tools, have a go in the rut
Excruciating pain, then you stop abrupt
Thanking your marbles you weren’t born without luck

Traps of glittering sand

Hope trapped in
minuscule crystals
translucent image
of what remains

still and will be seen
for teaching a lesson
for generations to come
I was the mason

created quicksand
someone didn’t land
so soft so beautiful
can’t waste such mastery

a sacrifice made
a price was paid
my sweet darling hope
was trapped instead

forever, infinity
no even divinity
could rescue, such
is the genius of its creation

now I roam the earth
mocking with mirth
cursing the birth
of universe and time

unable to cope
such is the effect
everlasting defect
of losing hope
