Dark Soul

Surrounded by bright souls
I felt mine darkening
It used to be like that before-
Bright as the sun, blinding

Bounded to a darkness after the fall
Neither the sun nor the stars were more tempting
Than the warmth of a hellhole
That was as dark as a buried coffin

It’s been so long since I felt this whole
I am a shadow in the brightest light, dominating
Had enough with the light that stole
The black, an ink that’ll keep me breathing
Even after my ending…


Our Words

They’ll see us marching
In one line
Hand in hand, demanding
Freedom and peace, they shan’t decline

Yes. I’m demanding
A human, I was born
Look at me, condescending
And I will seize your throne

On your knees, you say
Shoot me if you dare
Point your cowardly tool to my face
And I’ll give you a fiery grimace

Our words, they move mountains
They shatter steel armor and tanks
Our tears, they cry for the lifeless
Revive their souls and perhaps the humankind

Oh the calamity we have witnessed!
Things you cannot disguise
Oh what a sadness, what a demise

I scream
I scream enough to make those bullets burst
The ones you launch at me, out of bloodthirst
But a little girl in a skirt
Cries from fear, it hurts

Shut us up, you shall try
Look into our eyes, they’re dry
Watch us now
Now we fight back
Trust me, it’s a vow

We shall bring you to your knees
You’ll be begging for our silence
Don’t kill us, you beseech
Alas, you think we’re without kindness

We are not murderers
We are people of words
We are not dictators
We are free as birds

Remember those words
Remember them well
Write them in your records
We are the ones you shall not quell


A Word or Two

I discovered myself through words
Secrets I couldn’t expose
Things forbidden to say
The boundaries, the bars, the cages and the walls
I brought them down

I discovered real passion
For love, for life
A passion towards others
Those who anchored your boat
Held their breath underwater
Until you were ready to set sail

I discovered magic
Something I never saw in letters
In the words they form
That can unite, destroy,
Or give some more-
Another piece of you
To the spectators

And love-
Through words
I discovered love…
