The Cynic

Miles across the crust
Lands, seas and mountains
Trees, flowers and birds
The world, the Earth, the universe
So enormous
There’s no room for me
So immense
I have nowhere to be

The Ruiners

Ruiners
Worriers
They try to drag me down
They grab to pull me down
Whiners
Complainers
They think they can get me
They got themselves bound

The Return

Out
Out of the earth
I crawl out of the earth
Dirt
Stuck to my skin
Damp, dark, clingy dirt
Dust them off
Wash them away
I cleanse myself
I get ready for a new day
I break away
Break away for a new phase

The Reflection

Grey and gloomy
Damp and stuffy
Car horns and puddles
Odour and dazzles
The kid dropped his paper plane
He bent down and saw it upside down
The same city
But a different sky
The same cars and marching people
But with lighter spirits
He saw it
In opposite
The child
We all missed

The Long Speech

A thousand words in my stomach
The utterances
All my speeches
Rolling and turning in my stomach
A million words in my belly
The pieces and bits
Silent thoughts hidden in my body
My blank eyes
My indifference
My face rarely lit
Your ears
Your hunger
I’m not gonna feed
