OUR TIME IS TIMELESS AND ABSURD


We do live in hard time And I call it greatly Timeless and absurd because This time was good before A long, long time ago May be at the time of our Pretty parents Adam and Eve, I feel like everyone is alone In this lonely and hard world, Everything tastes hard and difficult Like we're eating pieces of hard rocks And we're drinking the sea's water, We're living in a different world and A different time which is timeless, We're merely like passing clouds over An ocean world full of sharks and whales, We're scary because we scare ourselves With our ugly deeds and our inhumanity, We hurt ourselves with our words and our Deadly weapons anytime and anywhere, We look for our lost selves in the mirages Of all deserts of our unknown world, I look for my baby in my poems just to Find her every time I want, Our world is merely a big lie and A zigzag map in our minds, We're merely swollen figures and A long story of sufferings and pains We're living continuously.... We have a lot of problems in our life, So we do insist on our hard time Which is hard, timeless, and absurd.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
