Just color

  When my color overshadows my views, I call it racism. They say ‘nothing wrong in it’. Their ‘blackie’ ‘nigger’ abuse my heart but it gives them superior comfort between their guile lips. Their births were wrong ejaculation on the wrong petals.   They are misguided chromosomes paired in insensitive moments in the wombs with abnormal birthmarks on each pair.   Their afterbirth...

“Thank God, we are safe ”

“Thank God, we are safe ”

Dec 15

-To the suffering souls in Syria, Myanmar, Palestine, Kashmir, Yemen, Iraq   Things are out of hand. And the preacher from a comfortable pulpit says, “Let’s pray” Yes, we the commoners can pray only or cry occasionally witnessing slaughtered souls outside the incubators, inside the incubators. We see besieged humanity on the Facebook , twitter, instagram We feel the pangs of conscience...

My strangeness bothered the bigots. I wanted to kill them with my caprice They wanted to kill me with their ancient whim. My crazy loneliness was uncompromising With their everyday prescribed life. I challenged their old steps with new rhythms On which they stumbled at the doorsteps. I was mocked and mimicked by the grown ups But kids looked at me in an awe of disbelief Towards the past and...

The one Came down the mountain trembling in awe Got seized by the primal discourse of Law. He cloaked him wondering at the new breed Pondered over the new-fangled word ‘Read’. He felt the tremor inside of the divine grace He embraced indeed and called to embrace The inevitable, pristine, unrivaled knowledge For all, for the moment and for every age.       Inspired by: Sura...

One can see me, not my mask. My mask is my second skin which makes me oblivious Of the masks worn by you and...

You imbecile! Didn’t feel in life Or reckon your grave. Denied pure sound Preferred the ‘caw’ Felt you were brave.   Vicarious penitence None for your sin In this or after life. You said, wrote That will curse you Leave you in strife.   Your impotence Brought the words Impure, obscene. You plotted with Devil’s logos Imports unclean.     28 September 2016 Tabjia, Abha, KSA...

Sep 27

You are laconic when words pant in pain being less or nothing. In time when I need to resurrect the dying cause That is good for all and for me You get quieter than death. You smile away all the queries You contrive a bubble that is essentially short lived But saves you from the curious eyes of your helpless fellows. You busk in the sun but leave no rays for others You believe power is your...

Hey girl!   Show your face, down the neck On the Facebook I’ll never leave you alone Let you off the hook.   If you don’t dress in brief To the western norms I’ll then size you down Cut you in forms   Dark Abaya resists eyes Fails the greedy heart I see woman beauty product Fleshy flirty tart!   Hey girl!   If you shun ‘Freedom’ defined By the refined west I will never...
