    great style...also a great perspective on MidEast culture, which is so often misrepresented and stereotyped in Western culture. Thanks Fasika for your insight!

Best Poem of Fasika Ayalew

Endless Race

When desire takes over
Insatiable need overrides
The mind will run a prize less one
An endless distance …
The mind will stride
Speed up its pace
It accelerates
Run its own race

The mind will run
An endless journey
Till it looks into the depth
To reconcile with its essence
Until it does…
The mind will run a tiresome distance

Over one’s will when emotion take over
Desire overrides,
The mind will run a fruitless one
Until it reconciles with the soul
To calm down and take control

So I Am Black

Today, from the whip of slavery
On my back there is no weal
But the legacy, history and old days
They gripped my mind, prejudice to feel.
Cause I am born and grown black.
That is legitimate to think,
Cause back in time I remember,
What was done on the cost of Atlantic
Now, I didn’t want to believe
