I don't follow
I don't lead

I just make sure
I always get where I need to be.
One way or another we all do
Shofi Ahmed May 2017
Hold onto the little one.
Don’t spill the raindrop
Let it run, let it run!

The sun in a dew
dancing on the rose
let it roll out
a drop of the deep
on the ground.

Let it roll, let it dance.
Take your plunge
swim down the sea
only to sing high
fly out with the cloud!

Like in the sea
the spin is in a
drop of water.
Makes the heart sway.
Follow the river
to the west, the east
the north and the south.
It goes every way.
I followed the trails that she had left behind
I walked the trails religiously abide to it
My eyes set on her trails- I witnessed nothing beyond it.

There was no question of our destination
It was a journey- I stumbled, I fell, but I chased
I lived every season and survived it through
I pushed away every help- I wanted to rise as a hero
I made my stories down the path- practiced every word of my proposal

My heart ached, tears dropped, I chocked on my misery
Yet I crawled after her trails , in search of her

In hope I followed to hear her say :
"Don't follow the trails anymore.. walk next to me and together we create"
Chasing unrequited love becomes so difficult at times.

Blessed I’ve been with ***.
But I’m stuck in the winds.
How much for your soul?
Come pay for your sins.
Nowadays I can’t trust.
It seems so hard to win.
I don’t want to lose myself, amongst these mortal men.


Been in the streets fighting temptations.
Running from my problems and complications.
I’m so moody now that I’m off my medications.
But now I’m focused with more dedication.


Stuck within my flaws.
Smoking, have no wind.
Summers over, now it’s cold.
I've lost so many friends.
Nowadays I can’t trust.
And I cannot pretend.
If I ever lose my health, I’ll self destruct again.

Been in the streets fighting temptations.
Running from my problems and complications.
I’m so moody now that I’m off my medications.
But now I’m focused with anticipations and dedications.

they tell me, 'just follow you heart, it will tell you what to do'.
but what if my heart is just as silent as a gust of wind? what if i can't follow my heart simply because it is standing still, not moving a muscle?
what if i have absolutely no idea what to do?
my heart is a labyrinth, and it switches  every few seconds. my mind is a tangled mess of yarn. and i am left quite confused.

so, i'm sorry but i don't know if this is love, or if my heart is playing games.
i'm sorry but my feelings are quite hard to read, come back later?
