    Arsiema Berhane tells truth, but truth is distressing to the pampered, indifferent mass consciousness of the West. Arsiema's poetic skills are second to none, but the message and intense emotion of the verse astound and humble the comfortable dwellers in (temporary) asylum of consensus reality.

    Politics of Life... loved it!

You're very, very talented!

    I have been going through your poems and am impressed by the diversity of subject matter and the different techniques and personae you experiment with. Nearly all the poems are well crafted and tightly written with no wasted words and the situations and subjects well and thoughtfully observed. I think they show real talent. Keep them coming :)

lifeless sphere
in the universe.
But then, you won’t have to worry
and have sleepless nights in your bed.
By the time all this happens
you will be long dead.’
I said all this to the man
sat next to me
on the long journey
to my village.

He looked at me and said,
'Madam are you a pessimist?
I don’t really like what
I have just heard.
Try to say something pleasant
or don’t ...
