The beauty in his death
The intriguing journey of life brought you to a place
with boundless happiness, faith, hope, and love,
and years worth of laughter etched upon your face;
you now walk to the welcoming, loving arms of the One above.
Your kind manner and soft-spoken words will surely be amiss.
The absence of your loving heart and concern for others,
your wisdom, logic, and limitless breadth of knowledge leave an empty space
that can never be filled, but will be eased over time only by God’s Grace.
Nameless wonder (Untitled)
Explanations, determinations and reiterations
haze up the blue canvas of sky in my mind;
again, again, again, words play like on radio stations,
not knowing of the sunshine which hides behind.
Time, rhyme, lemon and lime –
all things different in the end add up to one whole,
showing us a confused burst of meaning
which none of us will ever grasp.
This is the world: it is upside-down;
a smile is a frown,
a verb is a noun,
a hamlet is a town.
This is the world: it is inside-out;
a whisper is a shout,
a grin is a pout,
a good man is a lout.
This is the world: it gobbles you up;
you deserve a goblet, you get a tin cup;
you deserve a palace, you get locked up;
you deserve a fair trial, a conspiracy is cooked up. Continue reading
Turmoil rules my mind.
A cloudless orbit through this life I can not find.
Choice and circumstance
form an avalanche:
waves of confusion engulf my serenity.
The end of the stream is concealed somewhere that I can’t see.
I wonder whether I shall care to search for my objective
while the only thoughts slithering through my mind are interjective?
I haven’t yet received orders from above me in the chain of command;
I surmise it is something I am supposed to demand.
But I crave to be free from this bureaucratic conglomeration
that everyone calls a new and independent nation.
The oxygen particles in my mind
race around like water droplets on fast-forward.
They hope not to be left beneath or behind
as the future pulls them onward.
Tides rush down my face and through my soul;
some of anger, some of anguish, some of no description at all.
These emotions are all-consuming;
but times, like tides, are progressing to a notable point.
The moment lets me freeze inside an infinite thought;
an idea, a theory, an unwritable hypothesis,
concluding in the casting out of one by another;
excluding nothing but the understanding of one by another.
I am sedated and boxed-in
like a racehorse in transport.
My thoughts become locked in
a monumental wrestling match, vying for support.
creates in my envirosphere
a startlingly cruel sensation
and brings a crude realisation: I know not my purpose here.
Calm, calm like the Dead Sea
I need it calmly to engulf me;
to rush calmly over my head
and calmly drown all the words I’ve ever said.
The rainbow is broken
The rainbow is broken; twisted, jaded, cracked and faded.
A once-loved token; that existed – now degraded. What it lacked had made it
the most beautiful reminder of a glorious reality now left so far behind: There in the dusty recesses of time it’ll wait until someone would see the value lying there, wasted, in the shadows of a mind once fruitful; useful, truthful, youthful.
To whom it may not concern
Why is the sunshine constantly evading me?
I stand somewhere and I physically see it fade away.
It floats off to another place away from me,
and I shiver in the gloomy darkness day after day.
