Lost

I think I lost my way

Trying to figure out a new destination

I think I lost my purpose

Day Dream

The sight of green leaves gives me joy

The wind wrestling the trees fills my soul

And I think of the forests burning

Of droughts

Of how I found my way out

Of struggles and overcoming

Of never truly knowing

The unpromised tomorrow

Of the challenges of living with true sorrow

Of being another

Of being lost forever

Of having no hope

Of the bliss that comes

When a rain drop

Finds its way to my sands

Happiness the flowers must feel

In a spring dance

Then my wifi gets connected

And I forget thoughts I thought I could think

Forget

I wondered if he’d forgotten

As we fell from the sky

As our form touched the sands

And our being materialized

I wondered if I too will forget

The reason I chose this body

Will I soon regret

The heaviness it brings

As gravity sinks

It’s teeth into my bones

Then I blinked twice

And I remembered

Nothing

After my first cry

 

The Moon

I rushed to meet the full moon

As I could finally see her face

A month of waiting could not be replaced

And as the moon turn around I knew

The rock looked much like you

My imaginary childhood friend

You survived this long

You were with me till the end

I wondered how your face was never changed

From Iraq to America

And somehow it did not feel strange

To befriend the moon

Dictionary

You are more than

A name

A gender

A career choice

You are what’s underneath

Buried deep

And between a definition and another

The essence was lost

Let’s put it back together

And leave definitions for those

Unsure of who they are

I find no need for man-made

Dictionaries
