False Promises

When will you understand

That life doesn’t make promises –

It only gives you hope

So as to taste the heaven,

And after that it lets you

In the miserable reality.


Wings and Weights

Lost on a blue expansion

With no land nearby;

However, I’m not in rush to anywhere,

Taking in the landscape

Building skyscrapers with my mind,

Growing wings of hope to reach their tops.


Anchors on my ankles,

Weighting me down to the deep,

Losing air,

A dark, calm surface seen from the underneath;

Closing my eyes, I embraced the core of existence,

And dived into the very consciousness.

I don’t want to delve into it further, but I know what mine is. Writing helped me out to understand it. It comes with pressure too, but I think it’s preferable to wandering confused. I see it that way at least.
