Dawn of Strength

A million of stars in the sky
When the sun is still so shy
Which light is the light of God
And which is the light of hell fire?

They are taking everything
They are lying about everything
They are oppressing people
They make nature eat on us
They make the animals annihilated
They make the children starve
They make women sell themselves
And they make men kill

And they create delusional shadows
That everything is sunshine and rainbows

To whom, oh, to whom should I turn?
How do I make my loved ones learn?
My advice, oh friends, please don’t burn
Blown away like the spores of fern

Only to God I can hope for refuge
To take my hand through this test so huge
Keep me away from those who make me a stooge
Away from the valley of slander deluge

Voices of the poor began to cry
Not in the roads of taghut they should die
Our true swords and shields must not be shy
Against the damned army of the single eye

In despair of Your warmly guidance
Break us from this stormy silence
Protect us from extravagance
Show us the way to independence

Paradox of Love

Love makes me puzzled, yet found some answers
Makes me feelingless, yet thoughtful
Makes me scared, yet secure
Apathic, yet empathic
Immune, yet sensitive
Crazy, yet sane
Sick, yet jovial
Insomniac, yet soundly asleep
Empty, yet filled
Stressed, yet calm
Envy, yet letting go
Dumb, yet learning
Weak, yet strong
Fearful, yet faithful
Sad, yet happy
Falling, yet rising

Flying Free

Once, a boy found a bird
Lying helplessly on the grass
On such a sunny day
How nice would it be for the feather ball
To soar high up like always
With it’s pack cruising around

Out of pity, the boy took it inside
Nursed it back to health
Supported it’s wings
Until the bird could fly again
Until the bird could fly again!
Flew it did
But never returned

Whoever thought it would leave?
But whoever thought it would return either?
Who knows what to think or expect?
Please
Don’t be like the bird
Remember with gratitude

Throne of my mind

She fills the room with her presence
A spark of light in my heart
I sway lost in the ocean of feelings
To be blinded by the mysterious blue
Sparkles blur up my vision
Couldn’t stand up like a sane man

I shuffle through my library of memories
Trying to look at photos of her
The librarian scolded me for that
Saying that this section is closed
And a dangerous place

Sometimes feelings kick me
From the throne of my mind
Leaving some holes in my heart
My weight gains heavily
Although mass stays the same

-Taf

Light blind

Stars burn so bright in the sky
Only to be jarred in darkness
To die without leaving a mark
Forgotten
Except by those who learn

-Taf

Self Destructive

That’s when he use his head as a hammer
To hit the wall suffocating him
Hoping to paint the wall red
And run out of internal lorries
Consuming spirits blowing blues away
Like dandelions dispersing
Steel cold days of storms

Exhausting nicotine cylinders
Box after box
Pernicious gasses clogging lungs
Letting them excite him with levity

Weed, pills, needles, coke and ice
Sucking his way to hell’s mouth
‘Farewell!’ he exclaimed lunatically insane
To the evil malicious world
Of direly wicked people

Do we want more people to suffer like ‘he’ did?

-Taf

Out of Time

How could anyone dare
Point their sore eyes

Tick tock

To a machine that never stops
Constantly moving without rest

Tick tock

Not too fast not too slow
But no one can catch it.

Tick tock

The more frantic you glimpse
The more brutal it presses

Tick tock

Generating pressure after pressure
Pressure multiplied by pressure

Tick tock

Capitalism of progress at it’s
Most evil, darkest, and tyrannous

Tick tock

With your daunting defiance to look
But remorsefully mountainous you must

Tick tock

You look only to find out
That you’re out of time!

-Taf

Fantasy

I see you
There you are
You whisper to my ears
I can listen
As clear as waterfall

There you are
Here, beside me
Asking what you think about something
I voice out what I conceive too
We do everything together

THUD!

A swift strike at my head
Woke up and face reality
No, you’re not here
I went to a magical land
Where people build castles in seconds
Nirvana, moksha, happens here
Ignorant ones say this is Paradise

I’ve been living in fantasy
Nightmares are not in my slumber, however,
It’s when I wake up

If You Miss Someone

If you miss someone
Remember those times of fun
Reminisce the ages under the sun

If you miss someone
Call that someone sweetie, darling or hon
Wrap them up like a turban

If you miss someone
From this little test don’t you run
Or take the shortcut with a gun

Let them make you a symbol
Vice versa, stronger than the back of a turtle
Synergise your strengths through this hurdle
It is never an option to tumble

The Most Merciful is with those who are patient
One thing for sure that you will learn
Only through hard times come the best moments

If you miss someone
Look forward for the time you all will be one
Which is when a big deal of you is done
