I Am Not Carefree. - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

ONLY IN MY DREAMS I TRAVEL BY AIR, BY SEA, AND BY LAND WATCHING ALL PATHS IN ALL DIRECTIONS. I AM GETTING OLD AND INSIDE ME SADNESS GETTING BIGGER AND BIGGER LIKE BIG MOUNTAINS. MY SADNESS IS ERASING AND DIGGING IN THE ROCKS FILLED WITH DIFFERENT HOLES. WITH DIFFERENT LETTERS THINGS ARE WRITTEN, WE DON'T KNOW THEM, WE IGNORE THEM. I CRY WITHOUT TEARS AND I GO BACK TO THE CUP OF WATER TO DRINK IT. I AM THIRSTY AND ALL RIVERS AROUND ME! RIVERS RUN, BUT NO WATER TO DRINK. A LOT OF BOTTLES OF WATER AROUND ME, BUT I DON'T NEED THEM. HAPPINESS IS NOT AROUND ME. I AM NOT CAREFREE. A LOT OF CARE AROUND ME IN EVERY CORNER. CARE IS MY BEST FRIEND. THE WHOLE WORLD AROUND ME, BUT HOT AND COLD SEASONS.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

CARE IS TOO MUCH FOR US, SO WE HAVE TO GET RID OF IT.
