Politics was never my forte.
I never understood about boundaries
they dissolved before me
every country extended to the poles.
Politics is not mere people and parties
agendas coups, says my friend
There is politics in everything
even in relationships.
Regardless of anything whether
tangible or intangible
man or woman
living or non living
everything has a politics.
Politics for me is merely flags of different colours
elite names in newspapers,
lengthy incomprehensible discourses
cleverly manoevered moves
to meet ones needs and ends.
With a heart of flower
Iam unable to comprehend
how heads are slit with swords and
hearts pierced with shots.
So i dont have a politics.
My heart is boundless
relations sans boundary
words smell humanity
deeds colour kindness.
So i dont need a politics of my own.
I never lost anything for my lack of it
