Stand Out

Stand Out short poem

Photo by MaxIFaleel

I don’t think
you should go
where everyone
has been before
Sitting on the fence
makes no sense
It’s either a yes or no

And I think
you should do
what no one
has done before
Blaze your trail
Don’t be frail
Be your own hero

I don’t think
you do say
what everyone
has said before
Have your own humour
No gossip or rumour
Whether it’s a friend or foe

And I think
you should think
what no one
has thought before
It’s about compassion
Legacy, not fashion
What you leave before you go

Freaking Out

Freaking Out short poem

Before the spill there was soaring. And then anti-g. I readied myself for the ultimate fall. This was the poetry of submission sharing the pain of disillusionment. Who was pretending of liberation in a see-through heart? This was the time

Sold Out

Sold Out short poem

Since I saw you, I’ve had this hope live in me. That everything that isn’t needed be gone. The details of sales papers, shopping carts. The ease of temptation. Standing still. To fill my cart full of things I don’t

I Stand Still

I Stand Still short poem

All things come and they go leaving behind the ones who stay, wondering into clouds and looking at the sky getting carried away by the wind and stopping by with the rain leaving behind the places that would no more

Work-out Or Run-out

Work out Or Run out short poem

No snacking on French Fries , but work for healthy weight and size. Get cracking on your workout , and stretch before you run out . A jog might sound like suicide when you’re as big as me. Take heart!


Washed out short poem

Slashing the surged monarchy of celibates stoking the fire of wounds, the turret locks on to a target taking off the gloves. The mountain was rising. A sheet of the floating ice disturbs the ecology of heart. I place my
