Meaning - Poem by Insaf Jaleel

They tell me that meaning comes from certain prestigious channels. However, I know meaning is where I stand in a myriad of forms they cannot see. They say meaning is in foreign words and worshipping others. I say meaning is what you will make of it. How come my experience is not meaningful? It feels meaningful to me in so many more creative energies than I can describe in words. Life does not fit any pattern so well and is so much more than how we describe it. If I focus on certain things, I am almost surely neglecting other things.

The world cannot be reduced to terms of good and evil. These are just two facets of a multi-faceted world of seemingly limitless facets. I don't need to condense expression or make things make sense to you. Communication is a problem with me but so long as I feel it, it's real. I feel so many things besides good and evil. Sure, there is good and evil, but then there are things which are neither good nor evil. Or perhaps they are both good and evil at the same time.

If I feel a sensation you cannot even imagine, does that mean it is not true? I am feeling many sensations right now, both internally emotional and externally tangible, which I cannot pinpoint into words exactly. Yet, they still exist. You must trust me on my saying so.
