the escape that i get
when i take a deep breath,
chest pains cease
their restless wander,

air fleeing trees,
a textured braille,
branches gesture peace,
motors parasail.
even the blind see what's happening
Mark Sep 12
Look inside everybody
Take a good look deep down
There's far too many reasons
For all the troubles we’ve been seeing
Jesus is wandering
While the devil is involved
Buddha is trying
And Allah is demonised
Fathers killing mothers
While our children fall asleep
We gotta wake up our children
We gotta wake up to our true self

The world is changing, look at the shape we're in
There ain't no doubt 'bout it, people have gotta unite again

Gathering on the local street
We got junkies sellin' speed
Who's gonna send a message
And try to give 'em hope
Jesus is wandering
While the devil is involved
Buddha is trying
And Allah is demonised
Fathers killing mothers
While our children fall asleep
We gotta wake up our children
We gotta wake up to our true self

The world is changin', look at the shape we're in
There ain't no doubt 'bout it, people gotta unite again
Not a fun game, when they say, ‘they try’, but they just pretend
For my brothers and sisters, people have gotta unite again

Can't unite love with a white flag
It means nothin' to a drug fuelled pair
You need universal love from all kinds
To change what's wrong with the world

The world is changin', look at the shape we're in
There ain't no doubt 'bout it, people have gotta unite again
Not a fun game, when they say, ‘they try’, but they just pretend
For my brothers and sisters, people have gotta unite again.
And when two losted spirits make unite.
Two jaded hearts will find each other.
Through lies, through pain, through misery.
True love will overcome this everything.
They will be able find right track.
And even in the darkest hole.
And when they will reunite.
Whole world will coming calm.
Everything around is colorful and bright.
When losted hearts unite in one.

Humans draw borders on land
As if Earth is unchanging
And our lives immortal to witness the stance
We lay claims to insignificant materials fleeting
But the world and so much more could be all yours
And all yours could remain for Earth's time
If we could only learn to fly our lands as birds do the skies
Traverse the currents as fish do waters

Because just what are you attempting to obtain
With these imaginary labels and lines invisible
Cowardly caging yourself in
From supposed evils of the world
Never to be wiped out
If you are harboring the worst of vices within

Long distance is hard
Hate sleeping alone
Awake throughout the night
Not holding your own

Overthink, toss, and turn
Tomorrow is here
How the rising sun beams
But your conscious aint clear

Cloudy and foggy
Full of emotions and memory
Missing the ones you love
Longing for their presence and energy

Expecting for the time
That you could unite
Unsettled until then
Trying so hard to fight

For that day to come
Close, in each other's arms
At last, the distance
Doesnt feel like fatal thorns

The truth is, of long distance,
Long distance is hard

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust) – 13

BismillahIr RahmanIr Raheem.

Wala ‘ana saeadatan Wala ‘ana hazin,

Wala ‘ana Al’hayat, Wala ‘ana Al’mawt,

Eindama tatahidu, ‘ant taerif ma ‘ana,

Eindama tatahidu, sataerif min ‘ana,

**** hunak ‘qbul ****’

Al’sabab Al’wahid, ‘Ana mawjud tawal hdha alwaqt,

Ruwhiun, aindamajat fi habik lil’abd,

Ah Yah Hubun! Yah Habibi!

Nor’ I am happiness, nor’ I am sad,

Nor’ I am life, nor’ I am death,

When you unite, You will know who I am!

I was been there’ before you were,

Only reason, I existed this long,

My soul, merged in your Love forever!

Oh my loved One! Oh my Beloved!

Allah Khair…..

Khairul Rabul Alameen Yah Arrahmanur Yah Raheem.

Rubayiat Al Thurab (Verses of the Dust)
Micheal Jan 3
Unity seems so far away.
For one reason or another we choose to remain at odds with each other.
Hatred a scar that can seemingly not be healed.
A cancer with so many different causes a cure is impossible.

The race into which one is born has long been a cause for disdain.
Why can something uncontrollable cause a person so much pain?
Generations raised to bear prejudice.
To this day it is for that cause that many still die.

Next to, or rather above lies higher power.
The god or gods one worships has led to many a war.
All believing the others are wrong, none choosing the path of acceptance.
Destined for hell are we all if this pattern continues.

Ironic is hating someone because of who they choose to love.
Yet this reason for hatred is more prevalent than ever.
Even if we all loved the same way it would still be subjective.
Futile as it is, we still choose to squabble over it.

These vices keep us from harmony.
Until we can get past these, division shall persist.

To the racial remarks: we're all one race - the human race. To the discriminant: don't live the lie that you're superior - we're all just human beings. To the stereotypes: silly sayings don't define someone, not even in the slightest. To supporters: seek light and see if what spurs you is worthy or even righteous. To those in denial: Wake up and seek wisdom - may your ignorance wear off. To the independent: families broken are dependents isolated - individuals internally lost. To the prosecutor: if you were victimized, how would you feel? To the victims: voice yourselves - your vulnerability can be used as a virtue. To the impacted parents and children: continue to climb this mountain, and maybe America will consider your cries. To the next generation: sorry my generation, in many ways, has already failed you... To the next generation: do better than us, and by doing so, you'll prevail too...

we don’t fit into each others shoes
but we walked down the path of many hues

different kind of blues

and we found we don’t need to fit inside
we just have to walk, side by side.
