Hiding


Not that

everyday

would mean

bad days

Not that

everyday

would mean

troubles,

would mean tragedy,

I have come to the point

where I've cleaned

up the

messes inside

my mind

and I can now

see

clearly.

But I just need to

hide

in a world where

uncertainty

is not my kind of

music

I can't dance

with its beat.

For sure

uncertainty

is always

present

in the world

and you cannot

see me there

because I am

hiding

I always hide

And I'm doing

something

for me to

stop

myself from hiding.

I just need to

create my own

melody

-dignity. So that I am always sure of

myself

surer than uncertainty.

And I don't want

to be hypnotized

by the exhausting, sick

patterns and rhythms of society

of deceit and traps

- in the world of uncertainty.

Not that everyday would mean

bad days

Not that everyday

would mean troubles,

would mean tragedy.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
