Re: Stacks playing  in my right ear
I can hear the rain in the left one
My hometown's soil is waiting for me
With the arms wide open

I can hear it, speaking
Saying "Come, come, whoever you are."
Pearls of the wisdom of my culture
I finally found my warm, familiar shelter.
"Come, come, whoever you are.' is a quote that belongs to the famous poet Rumi.

Does my strength
Make you afraid
Thunderstruck
Tongue-tied

Does my strength
Break all these rusty
Dusty taboos
Stuck in your head

Does my strength
Rebuild your thoughts
Polishes your mind
Brand new, alive.

I can feel it, both in my heart and mind
Eating me alive, creating scenarios constantly
Always whispers to me, makes my heart race
'Till the serotonin hits my brain.

It's like a sweet, tranquil melody or
The feeling of fresh air on my face and
For a while, whispers and obsessions go silent
Until it starts all over again.
I wrote this when I was dealing with my thoughts caused by OCD. To all people out there dealing with this, you're not alone, stay strong.

The sand shifts beneath your feet,
Your heart relaxes to a quiet beat,
The waters seem to breathe day and night,
Close your eyes take it in do not fight,
The wind satisfies your soul,
Just relax now you've played your role,
Touch the sand now scoop it up,
Hold it in your hands and form a cup,
Now let it seep through towards the sandy ground,
Your soul was lost but now its found,
The weather you desire will come your way,
Just stand closer to the bay,
Soon life will be eternal for you and me,
Look beyond the ocean and tell me what you see.

just because the star-
fish can grow its arms back does
not mean it didn't hurt.
______________

even though scars heal
and wounds fade it doesn't mean I
will forget the pain.
