I Am So Small - Poem by Naveed Akram

I am small as can be, swift as a dagger,
Like birds my weight is carried, a sorted
Affair, of percussion instruments, and lore.
The study of the people of the drums
Keeps a life with the people of the horses.

My design is your authority as it blesses you
More than me, like herds a shine has been built.
I am swift-footed, installing the visitations;
My bursting heart is as small as can be,
Many a tablet has it written a true message.

Ever since the masters of rules interrogated us,
We were being hurt by the rules of the laws.
I took the swift adder, killing its length from paws
Shedding skin, skirting along with authors of brine,
The same writers were alive, the living were the living.
