2014 - My Resolutions!

2014

If God might let me walk the paths of 2014, 
(ameen) 
then I shall spend it
as a research scholar, a student of life; 

I shall learn the tones of voices, 
the moods' diction, the words unsaid; 
steal the shades from the rainbow stripes, 
the colored band, 
and make them the ink for my new poems; 

I shall snap the spell of silence, and
learn to talk aloud; 
sanity will be my targeted objective...
the east sky will energize me
the west sky will be my Major; 

I shall learn to break the metaphors
by reading the text of my dreams; 

declare myself a soldier hard
against the seven deadly sins; 

I shall learn the ways of sages
keeping sailors' vision 
in their eyes, under their skins, 

yes, 

I shall rise and I shall shine
no way but this, 
for the stars threatened me on terms, 
have put a condition before me
that they won't talk to me
unless I become the leading luminary
brightening up my own horizon!
