    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! What a great commentary on the truths that embrace us as human beings, that no matter the pain and suffering we endure, here we are still, fighting for our hearts to keep beating when the possibility of that uninvited guest becomes a reality. 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 :)

Best Poem of Arsiema Berhane

Such A Rush

It's mornin', I have to get up.
It's mornin', I hate to get up.
It's mornin', it's gonna be a busy day.

Wake up early, make breakfast,
today's newspaper, gotta check it out,
got to run to the office, to earn a livin'
work like a dog from mornin’ till evenin’,
get back home and call it a day
and I will wish I was somewhere else away
but right now ……
sleeping in ma cozy bed
with a lot of stuff goin’ on in ma head
all I can think is:
what the rush to the sub-way will be
if I don't get up - right now.
