9. Breathing “between” Two Worlds

Rating: 4.1
Whenever I am happy
The maternal eyes stare
Who had lost her child
In the bus accident
Can I still be happy?

Whenever I relish food
The hungry saliva drips
From hungry stomachs
Teasing my appetite
Can I still gulp my food?

Whenever I sing
The retired ear drums beat
Vestigial vocal cords vibrate
Of many talking eyes
Can I still hum a tune?


When I sleep in my mansion
Sad penury glares
Out of the deadly black night
Making me ghastly scared
Can I still sleep?
And I lay awake….

Abha, It is difficult to live in this checkered world of good bad, up down, rich and poor. It is important not to let any one feeling break you down. Between the blessings and the curse we must find joy amongst the despair. Take care, Richard
