the argument ends
he won
i am martyred
in silence.

(c) 5/19/2015

It takes more guts and integrity
to be silent when you know
that you're in the right.

I'm not conceding out of cowardace
I give up for the sake of peace.

assclowns who've died for their misbeliefs.



Poets are martyrs,
bleeding for the pleasure of their readers.

In the hotel room
You feel more at home

You sleep better without

Without anything
Without everything

Without real life

Depriving yourself
As martyrs often do

Collect your cause.
Just keep your flaws,
Away from my claws.

She did not keep the peace, was not the conformist in silence, was not a normal person. She was the rebellious martyr filled with centuries upon centuries of the world's anger and trash. She did not yield for a rule, never  stormed for the greater good of currency, and was born to die. But of course, not before she recieved what she thrived for.

A libertine
to a martyr,
impose your injustice
and cast a lingering shadow
on my freedom
to be.

an audience,
inaudible with
eyes wide shut.
Puppets tuned in
to the same frequency,

Death lifts
a mistaken hero
above the crowd,
only after the rocks were thrown;
they now mark
the grave.

But I
am unworthy
of such titles,
too selfish and too proud
to endure the exposure
to judgment and
I am the one
who silences himself.

Country's condition that time being
Same time nation got some pearls
Those elite, scholars and interpids
Being tyro of revolution done great
Tho­se martinets, enthusiatics and
Fought till last breath of being mother land
Having high characters had the power
                                           to placate
Gathering all brought strength to open
                                         victory gate

In the rememberance of those freedom fighters for those to freed the nation was the only dream with open eyes because they couldn't sleep a single night with pleasure because of the  thoughts of mother land.

That time being nation's condition worse
For all to exist in yoke motherland seemed
                                                       to be curse
Having country's onus on youths to freed
So swear to intent freedom theirs' mind
With full enthusiasm, excitation and zeal
Everyone gone for country's wound to heal
Having all that time the same intent
Anyone who felt country's screaming of
                                        bondage present!

I try to feel again and again country's situation of that time , when freedom was only a word for our countrymen.
