Stake

Give me a break!

For God’s sake

Never fake

A smile

A frown

A word

Of love

Of wisdom

Nothing’s at stake

Give or take

Life’s a moment

Live it

Or leave it

But be you!

Walk through

The walls of

Fear

The barriers of

Illusion

Stand still

Be ill

Until

You know

How to say:

I am here

Until

You discover

How to stay

Far away

From deception

From pretending

Until 

You learn

How to be

The same

inside-out

Until

You let go

Of

Wanting fame

Save a draft

Of this poem

See the facts

Behind the norm

Face and embrace

A mighty storm

That turns out

To be nothing

But a gentle breeze

Passing at ease

Only to please

Those who feel

And hear

The sound of

Silence…

    كيفك أخي والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله
    شكرا لإرسال مدونتك من زمان لم أقرأ لك.. العتب عالكبر
    وماتدعو إليه في قصيدتك هنا أقول: ياريت ..
    لعله هذا هو الامتحان الذي خلقنا من أجله
