Who We Are.

We are mean machines
Captured consciousness
Chaotic, disrupted presences
Vying for belonging
Living on in hopelessness
In a familiar strangeness
Above all, Death is relentless
And dying is not lifelessness.

We are measured extremes,
trying so hard to balance
our lives in weightlessness,
scrounging by on emotions
breaking our meditation,
trusting in faithlessness.
Universe is indefiniteness
boundaries are absurdness.

We are poised river streams,
flowing in chosen directions,
Living and dying to meet
oceans and then fall as rain.
Meandering by, a tamelessness
an epitome of abstractness.
We live as she lives by
a journey of ambitiousness.

We are forgotten dreams
in an eye of imagitiveness
it is discovering nuances
with a look of ancientness.
It is only right to wake up
experience anonymousness
remembering the dreams
live moments of breathlessness.

Night 

The night calls me
waking me up from a deep slumber.
The night shows me
sky full of stars in december.
It is quite and moonlit,
haunted by our fears.
She is a beauty,
a painting of lights and shadows.
Silently and slowly she grows.

Courage

It takes courage to fight for one’s life.
To tread off leading paths.
And wander into darkness
Rejecting much sought after lights.

It takes courage to risk it all
To play dice with God,
And endeavor in unknown realms.
To meet strangers, befriending some
And making some enemies.

It takes courage to follow your dreams
To row your boat through gushing streams
While some labour and wait
And some just wait and scream.

It takes courage to speak up
To try and try but never give up
While some are busy complaining
And some just fill their cup

It takes courage to stand up for right
To never go down without a fight
While some fight and lose and quit
And some lose yet fight and win

Courage it takes to kill and die
To fight for truth when all about you lie
While few reason what and why?
Some simply settle with a tie.

It takes courage to face each moment
While life gives us big challenges
While some always repent
Over what they did
And some are always lost
in what they haven’t done.

It takes only courage
And nothing else
To do whatever you want
To get further than the world will grant

It takes courage to take the journey
To the destination of your dreams
While some simply see the end
Of their journeys
And others see
beginnings at the end.
