Challenge Babe Challenge - Poem by Ibrahim Hydarah

how long will you stay tied?
oh, my darling!
try to challenge the ancient protocols, ancient traditions,
and what you learned from the others
(or what the others taught you) .
try to break instructions of lords.
for a once in your whole life..be free
be 'you'.
your choice.
your will.
your emotion..not your Unconscious.neither habit.
to break the sound barrier.
silence barrier.
habit barrier.
and fear barrier.
for a once, , , be 'you'.

run away from laws,
kick the systems.
for a once... be brave,
and love.
say: ' l love you'.
and come to me quickly,
come, throw yourself between my arms..
kiss me.
make love to me...just love.
or...are you afraid?
this is it..
the pleasure of life.
and it's meaning..
when we feel fear,
defeat it and
find out that it is
weaker than we have imagined.

challenge, babe. challenge.
life is going on.
time never stops.
soon you'll wrinkle,
enjoy your youth

challe nge, babe, challenge
