Oh father

Farther, frantic, frivolous, funny Arbitrary, amazing, amorous, angry Terrified, terrific, tutor, tumble, true Healing, hearty, heavenly, hotheaded Embrace, empower, enormous, encouraging

Rare, rowdy, resolute, resolved, remembered

All of these and more apply to a Father. A day a year is never enough to appreciate

All he does for his family. Sacrifice is his middle name,

Silent support is his first,

Power and strength are his last name,

A pillar of wisdom is his endgame.

Out of Time

Time, the b-ch, that slips through any wisps,
Takes away your joyous loves
Of the wander that the present presents.

Exert from my poetry book, Perfectly Flawed

Hope’s Constellation

The summer sky’s shades are all vibrant, Going from baby blue to azure to royal blue

Changing on the whim of the weather that can’t

Decide which blue suits it utmost:

Dark and depressing, or cheery and frisky?

Mainly, all are moody and try you out for a test:

Of whether its moods become yours or do you heartily

Overcome the sky’s emotional breath?

Gazing dreamily into the sky’s constellations

On a summery night, fills your breast with

Wishes and desires that abound in intentions

Of freedom to roam among them, freeing your breath.

The Constellations’ Devine joy is in being constant,

True, and unwavering attestation to God’s will:

That surmises the need for unchanged candescent

Brilliance that brings hope and faith that spill from the quill.

Peaceful Palestine?

The terror drives their heart beats into a drum

A drummer erasing your life and turning it into a bum.

Sirens, louder than your heart’s drum,

Blare out the need to evaluate the slum.

Run, run, run faster, faster still, jump

Into the bomb shelter for fear of being a lump

On the street, another cadaver hacked in a frump.

Blood stains the streets, cars, homes, and fields

That sustain the rebellion that fights oppressives.

In a vain attempt to eradicate the beliefs

I look around, children, women, elderly, youth,

All strewn like rag dolls, puppets on strings! Truth,

They are victims of unending war for territory of faith.

What a scam, lark, lie, brainwashing schemes,

Imposing your will on others!

Keep them weak, hungry, and hopeless,

As you stomp on their rights! Bleed them,

It’s the last foray into unknow, dread for them

Terrors testify that the drum itself is to be feared. For them

Is a way of life!

Well then, do something to end the strife!

That’s no way to live a life!

Mom, Habibti

Mother, mother, mum, mama,

Who are you?

Are you just the giver of life?

Mom, madre, mami, mam, ma,

What would you do to protect your babe?

Legal or nefarious means?

Mother, oumi, mama, Haha, mà,

How do you love equally all your babe?

Do you prefer one over another? Why?

Mam, nanay, habibti, ema, mamma,

How do you empower all your babe?

Do you compare them and demean some?

Mami, mother, mom, love, Ema,

Love me for me! Never send me away or leave me!

Mum, mother, maman, madre, Ema,

Don’t break my heart to leave,

Don’t break my heart and hate me!

Rejoice

Jump up revive and rejoice

Life is full of constant noise

Don’t let it slip by without a voice!

Don’t let the whisper build into a noose!

Let it out, and let it boost,

Boost you into the orbit of fools!

Fools for whom life is full of drools

Laughter, and zealous pools

Of people trying not to swoon

From the pressures that life has thrown.

Jump up, rise up, and be blown

By the continuous changes that have flown,

Capture them in your heart and groom,

Tutor loved ones that life is but a broom

That sweeps away misery and doom.

Trends

Never bound by labels and hatred

Never round the increasing bend

Never be a compelled bland

A copy of a model

They all do trend

Never blend

Like a led

Downed

Bed.

Addiction

I’m an addict

And I know it!

I revere two of the three Cs:

Coffee, candy, and cigarettes.

I love my coffee alone with my contemplation

Of life, likes, posts, news, like a great commotion,

Flitting from one to the next trying to see

What’s best before I rest to be free.

Posts galore and replies of mine

Make my day, as the taste of Coffee

Feels like a sinful pleasure.

With my dark drink, I bite into chocolate,

And drift into a coma at heaven’s gate.

I savor the sweetness along the strength

Of body of the coffee and it’s bitterness.

Life with the morning rituals

Cake, candy, chocolate, coffee and sweets

Is like life without a hero like Ferrero,

Or Cadbury, Mars, KitKat, and Aero!

Raising the bar in a day filled

With noise, poised to litter the mind

With fear, worry, and being drear!

So my habitual start is set in stone:

Coffee, contemplation, quiet that have

A lead to social media, news, where I refuse

To succumb to its dadarkness

That needs to twist your morning addictions

Into a depressive, foggy darkness.

Let your coffee’s wisdom fill

Your empty cup with hope that will

Reject to solidify into despair,

But reaches in your depths to repair.

Patriarchy

So men have gotten the fame they desire!

An entire day to their name! Who will enjoy it?

Who will cherish it?

Who will value the importance of it?

Who will disregard it?

Who will relate to it?

Who will abuse the power it lelt?

I know not!

What I do know is that men have a bad rap

History has turned them into a patriarchy crap

That has defined a man’s role in society,

Trying vainly to bind them into labels that are sappy.

Men and women are different. Let’s celebrate that!

Enjoy the opportunity to meld minds together,

Enjoy being amorous, friends, sons, daughter,

Binary opposites who need one another.

Don’t let social needs rule your ethics and values,

Generally, women are greater nurtures,

While men have a greater ability to withstand

Handle, and shoulder problems that grind

The heart and mind into dust, if their strength

Weren’t obvious in its existence in each breath.

Listen to the the father, son, brother talking:

They discuss how to provide for their family’s being

Proud of their conduct as they also give of themselves

To their ‘women’, children, friends, and careers.

Never underestimate the support that both

Generate to help survive in a world where debauchery,

Sin, gaslighting, deriding, racial slurring, iniquity

Are all part of our social order, that we deem both

A Necessary evil and a required critique of the unacceptable.

For change and acceptance to occur,

Time, teaching, learning, understanding don’t slur

The values of humanity, rather, they enforce them

By being more charitable, helpful, and adaptive.

Spring Awakening

With spring comes the necessity of all that’s new,

New life, babies, flings, relationships, and few

Appreciate the changes that swing in spring.

The wind lightens into a soothing breeze,

The sun warms your frozen new bones to appease

Your growing need to bask in the sun’s kiss.

As the rain drips, falls, and poors into the solified

Ground that has preserved life in a cryogenic state

That keeps everything in a scenic embrace as if framed.

Framed by what looks like a dying ecosystemed

That slowly crawls back to life like a recently awakened

Turtle ambling at a lollylag pace that seems to Creep.

Time, like the turtle, inches forward trying to break your bones,

That solid structure that holds your flesh in place, tries

To keep you from embarrassment by keeping you upright.

However, time, the unseen entity, ephemeral, and intangible

Runs like an athlete, seeping your youth, turning it

To wisdom, faith, uniqueness, healing, power in old age.

Espouse your frailty by striving for perfection

Knowing only God adheres to that image,

While ‘man’ is inherently flawed but humane.
