Did You Ever See A Humming Bird Cry? - Poem by Sajid Khan

Fountain of life its not just prune juice.
Maybe not for you
But for me it is, it is, it is.
It is all prune juice
And just nothing more.There is you and you and you
There are countless yous
There is only one me
Therefore I am special
Just as special as you and you…

You look tired and unhappy
Have trouble sleeping?
You are wearing your mask
I am wearing my mask
Mask is wearing out mask.

Does your supervisor know
you are wearing one?
Does your spouse know?
Do you even know if
You are wearing one?

You can wish all you want
You can dance from pillar to post
You can run from Dubai
But you will always take your self
No matter where you go.

You don’t need to run
From your tired self
Stay where you are
And run, run, run
Just run from your mask.

You know you are a trophy
So you keep buying trophies
But the trophies you have
You don’t count, while you count
The ones your neighbor has.

And you wonder why
You look tired and unhappy
And have trouble sleeping.
