American Taliban: The Miserable Brain Chemistry

see, if you are fine
and I want you to remain that way until
you change that state to a better one-happy, satisfied in all the Maslow pyramid listed drives and needs.-

but if you screw your own nature,
you are not in touch with it,
you do not listen to all the
emotional signals,

and to your guts,


god is there,
waiting in front of your nose,

i am not asking you to balance
only to be aware.

god appear
when the 'bad, bed, and bold things' happen to you

i am sure
you are vulnerable

i am sure,

you are in denial and setback
-it all about them and the pain,
you are not part of it-

i am sure,

god do
act as
neither as an engine
nor as a catalysis.

take a breath,

face it,
explore it

and commit


god neither explore nor commit;
if so no one will be judged or sacrificed.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
