This Way That Way! - Poem by Najib Altawell

Today a miracle baby is running away
In a misty foggy distant motorway
While the balloon lion is timely floating
Wishes born and dissolve straight away

Tearful eyes
Lost in space
Lost in time
Lost
The
Meaning
Of
A special rhyme
Lost
The
Meaning
Of
A new day
Lost
The
Meaning
Of
A pure love
Running in anger
Running
Running
Running
In
Dismay

The world they say is rich and resourceful
But difficult to live in a peaceful way
Our existence is continuously changing
Like a river
Carrying
Life
Death
And
Decay

Disenchanted in today’s living
The miracle baby
Want to know
God
How
To live
How
To obey

Nothing seems
Honest
Nothing seems
Direct
Genuine
Sincere
Despite what they say!

The miracle baby 'cries' and 'continues'
To pray
For all the soldiers killed
Fighting
For
So called
Peace
And
For
Those
Scarified
Slaughtered
In a religious
Sway

Wondering
About
All these killing
All these sacrifices
Ever
Ever
Brought to them
The truth
They always
Thought about
Then they forgot
The next
Day

Miracle baby is running away
But not knowing
Why
How
And
Where
Just desperate
For a sign
For a hope
For a ray

Miracle baby is
Running
Searching
And
Searching
'Grew'
Old
Even before
Had a chance
To
Play
