Enjoy And Remember - Poem by Atef Ayadi

they are two verbs and two antagonistic words in my head....

to enjoy

and

to remember....


now, for me

to enjoy is completley
separate, independent and non related to the family of 'to remember.'


As a kid

someone,

i mean some ass-teacher hole-firing the hole

has to slap you, screw you down to the groud, against the walls

just to make sure that

one of us has to remember....to finish the day with a battle, a fight....

of keeping memories.....


at the same time.... no one enjoy....the day,

the morning,
the fun of doing kids art,

reading, and

singing songs....

everything
was:
you remember....you are safe,

you do not! , you can not, you did, you could not
then
you can not be
safe

and this
batton will

make you learn that!
