Luck?

Today, the world is a global village, where

Knowledge and friends are at your fingertips, there

Or across the ocean, continent, country, even street

You never know where your next lucky charm will pop up at.

Buck, f–k, junk, luck, tuck, truck, stuck, struck,

All revert to luck as they all stick together in a funk.

I love all these good luck charms that drive in an infinite

Figure eight to send some more luck your way, even if late.

From billions and millions of people around the world

To the individual’s solitary existence, to eco systems

To the tiniest ant, even tinier, that make the systems

Work simultaneously, and depend on each other hard.

It’s a lesson to learn, that ‘no man’s an island ‘,

And neither can nature nor man live separately

Nor can either live without the strength of belief, strongly

Ensuring ALL’s survival for their dependence is the law not the exception.

Soul’s Individuality

“Find out who you are. And do it on purpose.”

Says Dolly Parton as she describes the need for identity.

Do you know who you are?

Do you wait for a magazine, a model, and trends

To validate your existence to others?

Are you being led, like a lamb, to the slaughter

For you are a follower not an instigator or leader?

If asked to jump, will you? Why or why not?

Identify what characteristics make you unique.

Embrace them, strengthen them, stand for them

Even if it’s late, you’ve already many mistakes made.

Grasp your said ‘weaknesses’ and turn them into

Fortresses, pillars of power to wage a war though

You know the result: You are the Victor!

“Why?”, you ask! Simply put, your perseverance,

Fortitude, and belief that your faith and ethics,

Your hope in being a power to be reckoned with

Will pull you through all obstacles that try to demean you.

Fight, don’t back down, don’t let your color define you,

Your gender, your social class, your blood kin, though

You must break the bonds imposed on you

By standing for your faith, uniqueness, and belief

In the God that empowers and supports you!

Grow!

Fie, fie, fie!!! I say: “Fie! It’s such a lie!”

“What is it?” I ask, that’s so incongruous it needs to die?

Fie, fly, try, cry, buy, sky, dry,

Don’t let what baffles you turn you into a sty.

Look, learn, open your mind to find That knowledge breeds understanding of a kind.

The type of compassion and reverence

For life and faith requires a great severance.

By demolishing the barriers, bonds, and stereotypes

You rise above the blinders that society supplies.

Have the courage, fortitude, and puissance

To face the ingrained beliefs about the other without patience.

Cleave your heart from your mind, and let

Objectivity reign over ignorance and don’t fret.

The world is chaotic enough without your pettiness,

Leave it behind, conquer it’s dreary unhappiness.

By imposing your faith in God and yourself,

You grow more holistic, compassionate, and selfless.

Permit your faith in humanity grow to eradicate

Inequality, racism, sexism and imperialism, as it’s never too late!

Just Money

Just, lust, must,

Guts, gusts, and grubs

Champs, chumps, and lumps.

All in all, they all face the power of the just.

Who comes first, who loses is inapropos

As long as they know that injustices can’t go unpunished!

Crime, criminal, abuser, traitor, saviors

All have time to face the music, all pained.

Those who break it, must inevitably, dance to the tune,

The music of victory over poverty and those weakly,

Gingerly try to step away from heads that roll,

Playing the part of the weakling who’s accused wrongly.

Oh what would it be like to find a world where justice

Is not only a must, but applies to all stratas of societies

Whether poor, middle class, rich, or multicultural,

All revere the law and all that’s lawful.

Oh how convenient it is to fall into the cracks

Of those who judge others by their looks

Rather than their actions, that require faith in a broken

System that reveres the material more than ethics.

Faith!

Tick tock, tick tick, Zeus and Hera were gods of old,

Whose siblings and children ruled Olympus to forward

Their traits into humanity, but if they didn’t subjugate

Themselves to the will of the gods, they impose their revenge.

Tick tock, tick tock, polytheism gods’ names change

With time, civilizations, to represent the needs of the

People, from Thor to Anu, to Anubis, and Dragon

Or Shangti who require sacrifice and receded into anon.

Tick tock, tick tock, monotheism starts with Moses,

Jesus, and Mohammad whose miracles and messages

Are similar in that they ALL believe in One God that reigns

Supreme in the heavens.

Today, we regress into polytheism of the church

Of the broken god, that believes in evil within flesh,

While aspiring to mechanization of self, logic, and intellect.

Again the female god is animalistic and impulsive.

Yet, so many others continue to revere the monotheistic

Religions, knowing that faith is an antidepressant,

A builder of confidence, a strength stronger than mountains.

It elevates you and steers you away from obduracy.

The Reel

One, one, twenty one, a new day starting a new

Chapter in your life.

There is a need at times to wish for a new

Beginning, erasing all that came before.

While your mind slips from one memory to another,

Like a movie reel replaying moments of laughter,

Difficulty, obstacles, challenges, even despair.

Are you watching a comedy, drama, suspense, or horror?

Interestingly, they all coexist in the life that we live.

Life is more dramatic, comedic, intriguing, and satisfying

Than any movie or book you’ve watched or were reading.

It raises so many questions of existence, faith,

Identity, even belief in God, whose reasons for our trials

Are His alone. We, as people, turn those obstacles

Into evil and something to be feared.

While the reality is that those challenges are our ‘tests’

On earth, where we are judged by how we react to all our problems,

And not for the existence of the complication itself.

Live in Love

Red roses for love and passion

Candles for creating an ambiance for love

Chocolate and candy to show its sweetness

Swans’ necks form a heart of love

Pigeons are for fidelity, longevity, peace

What other symbols do you need for objects of fondness.

What are mine, yours? Are they the same?

I believe each of us has one or more that are uniquely

Ours. We cherish them as though, thoroughly

Loved, like a person or pet, we pamper them,

Talk, complain, vent, and play with them,

As though animate, alive, aware, awesome,

And astonish in its silence and peace.

Those objects of love become our lifeline

To better, younger, simpler days where time,

And responsibilities were minimal, a line

To laughter, languishing, loving, incorporating

All we love into simplicity and caring!!!!

Dominian of Life

The journey of life encompasses extreme emotions

From depression, to betrayal, to exhiliration.

Starting from worst to best in order to end on a positive note

We begin at the lowest times filled with darkness:

An abyss of desolateness that propels you into a whole

Whirlpool that sucks you into a vortex of helplessness.

Don’t succomb to it!

Shout out your power and suppress anything that depresses it!

Betrayal is next, it’s the real-estate of a state of extreme

Emotions overpowering your selfworth and take

You into a sepulcher of pain trying to negate Its influence.

Accept it, face it, then leave it in a chest,

Locked, chained, and sealed with the hardiest

Of mannacles that are intangible, but bind none the less!

Your exhiliration comes with success in overcoming failure,

Cheer in the face of animosity, changes that come before

You are ready, but there regardless.

Facing the challenges of change can be charmless,

Or it could be an exultation so overpowering it renders

Your fear into miniscule object that has a suppressor.

Let life’s challenges be what strengthens who you are,

Let it assert its dominion over those ‘Nay Sayer’,

Never succumbing into the blackwhole of despair.

Let your faith in yourself be your real-estate rather than a betrayer.

Voices Rise Not Hide

I’ve been sitting on the deck watching the fog

Creep out into the perilously darkened sky,

Waiting for winter’s cold to seep and hibernate in a log.

Even the tree trunk stops its growth and its leafy

Dress has fallen on the ground, food for worms

And other creepy crawlers that abide insides.

With covid spreading, killing, and scaring humanity,

Its many mutations vying for attention, probably,

Many feel the need for hibernation as long as no solution

Exists for man’s protection. Pharmaceutical companies competing for vaccination

Uncaring of side effects on man’s Health.

What fiction!

Holidays come and go without a cheery spirit.

We long for a time when we just drove to our

Destination, uncaring to where or with whom we’re

Meeting up with , as long as we meet, communicate,

Discuss, argue, chill, and amuse one another

With nothing but our presence and care!

Never forgo the need to stay in touch with your

Humanity that’s strained while you hibernate for

Fear of sickness, racism, and oppression reign!

Let them combat each other while our compassion

Rises to the fore, fights, wins, then rests in faith and religion.

Life’s Beatings

Some say: ‘It’s easier said then done’;

Others have similar sayings, with a different turn.

Lebanon, the saying goes: ‘ He who gets beaten

Down isn’t the same as the one who counts the beatings’.

Whether you take this literally or metaphorically

It seems logical that the one being beaten constantly

Feels the pain and heartache at a different level

Than an observer, sympathizer, or companionable

Friend or family member. It’s understandable

That being the recipient of such bad deeds affects

Not only the constitution of the person, but also

His character traits alter, his mood vacillates,

His very being shifts into negativity, unconscious

Of the act of changing till someone wakes him/her

Up to their behavioral substitutions that aren’t a part of you.

Ever! Don’t wait so long for things to become insurmountable,

Identify the cause of your beat down, face the indomitable

Obstacles that seem too solid to be broken down

And resolved as an entity. ‘Divide and conquer’,

They say, so too should your problems be cleaved

Into manageable parts, so your problems are metamorphosed,

Turned into simpler goals that are easier to be triumphed

Over, boosting your selfconfidence into believing

In your ability to dispatch the rest of the issues revolving

Around the whole that is effortlessly solvable.
