A long journey home

Persian Blog

 

I am not poor.

I am not weighed down.
I am not ugly, fat, inadequate.

Not good enough, not pure enough, not strong enough.

I am rich.
I am free.

I am free.

Dying is the first race

Never mind Lawyers,
Children with no mouths,

Never mind Inspiration,
Write Now.

Hostage

image

Promises are made to be broken,
Thwarted,

Made again,
Whilst Jasmine pours,

Perfume;

Where God,
Is an impression, a

Figment,
Asking why, if

Birds and fish and,
Creatures of all kinds,

Flourish,

We terrorize each other,
Impossible,

Even at crimson sunsets, to
Be the first to apologise, and

Stop polluting the Earth?

The tyranny of Doubt

short poetry, age, end, death, review, purpose, doubt

When you are born,
You know that you are,

Here to change the world,
And it is good,

And it’s alright,
To do your best.

Then,

You’re checking the curtains,
Just in case,

You run out of sunshine.

-evocative short poetry-
