Against The Odds

Image
I want to breathe like the Cactus;
I want to stay alive, knowing though
That I am the only green in a thousand miles.
Pulp on the inside, spikes on the outside;
I want to be unaffected by frown, or acclaim,
Casting little care for judgments or day-brings –
But living like death is on a long, long sabbatical.

I want to make music out of wind-howls;
Sitting tight on shifting sands,
Refusing to hide or beg the sun.
And when there is rain again,
I want to glance at that modicum of hope,
But hang on its flitting joy, forever.

To Be (Poem)

Image
To be in the world
A place at a time, never more!
To walk the earth, high or low,
Wasted or restored, to live.
To feel like a god, like a king
Or a mere presence, soon forgotten.
To stare death in the eyes
And again be rudely reminded
Of your very impermanence!
