Watch and Listen to a reading of the poem by me.

 

Is there a purpose to our life and if there is,
how is it different from that of a cockroach,
a salamander or the plague dispersing mice?
I think the time has come for you to determine!
    

Am I sleeping or must you wake up from your dreams?
It is your call but do let me know what you think!
You have the key, whichever way your call might come,
to change it all, only if you do not succumb
to the vested whims of the alleged majority!
    

If it is I who has his eyes closed, wake me up,
if they be yours, wake up and let them see the light!
Either way, please no more be silent or inert,
for that is the gravest sin against humankind –
to shrug it off, unless yourself is on the firing line!

  1. You had me at the first line. Is there? I don’t know. I’d like to believe there is, and I’m still searching for it. Thought-provoking piece, as usual.
    How are you my dear friend?

  2. “For years, copying other people, I tried to know myself.
    From within, I couldn’t decide what to do.
    Unable to see, I heard my name being called.
    Then I walk outside.
    The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
    Don’t go back to sleep!
    You must ask for what you really want.
    Don’t go back to sleep!
    People are going back and forth
    across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
    The door is round and open
    Don’t go back to sleep!”

  3. That picture is chilling considering that I was in the U.S. Marines, doing that exact same thing with my team with those EXACT same clothes on. I really don’t like war. We really need to love each other.
