Time And Departure - Poem by Atef Ayadi

Pleasure is time:
Fast, slow, and silent;
The pain is a rapid
Crash against time;

Anything else
Is lesser than pain.

I took one bag
Stuffed with few necessary feelings
One of them is my compass
The other feelings
Are my energy reserves.

I am departing,
The wonders
Are always among the unknown.
