Define Yourself First - Poem by Atef Ayadi

Define your face
without joy or fear.
Define your hands, legs
Your veins, your heart,
Then define
Your center, your place, space,
Before your tears' and sheers' sphere.

Redefine everything!

Your whispers,
Your head,
Your bottom, and
Your twisted skin surface twisters.

Identify first yourself
To yourself,
That is the most important thing,
Then see
How the world will come
Toward you
Like a flying book
Hovering over
And adventurous young swimmer shelf.

Redefine everything!
Including your birth and birth date,
Including yourself.
