I Am Dream – Poem #6 – (2021)

I’m what I end up not saying⁣⁣⁣⁣
I’m what I end up not thinking⁣⁣⁣⁣

I’m what avoids the sight⁣⁣⁣⁣
I’m your main event

I am between the lines,
I inhale paradoxes⁣⁣⁣⁣

I am Between the words,
I squiggle for realisations⁣⁣⁣⁣

I am between the days,
I attempt to sidestep thinking⁣⁣⁣⁣

I am between the evenings,
I dream my sidestepped thinking⁣⁣⁣

I am between you and me ⁣⁣⁣⁣
I am ⁣a composition of my misunderstandings⁣⁣⁣⁣

I am between you and me⁣⁣⁣⁣
I will be ⁣the interpretation
You always wanted.

On the mother earth
And from our ancestors and teachers,
Do you expect us to sit and listen
And believe all about your fake gods?
Do you know what there is
A demon inside each of us; in History,
The demons among us,
Will have us destroyed.

In this world.
Who among us could have spoken up?
Against the God,
Who continued living among us!
He granted wishes and punishments
Much the way He always had.
Very few noticed them,
Casually taking the shape of one thing or another.

I avoided fights,
Avoided everything really.
All the while intently studying
Patiently looking
For the tell-tale signs,
Looking to find even
One other person like me.

When people challenge the God,
He curse them
With the label of madness.
It is all very convenient.

God can take the form of a swan
He can be merciful
God can take form in unknown colors
He can be anywhere
He can save someone
He can destroy someone
He can take the form of an eagle
He can take the form of a whale
He can take the form of fire
He can be the trunk of tree
He can be this, he can be that!
Do you know why?

GOD WITHIN US (Poem #01)

He grants you the ability
To forecast the future,
He wrenches your tongue
From your mouth, changes you
From monster into an innocent
The God is generous.

In this way, I learned
To avoid danger, avoid fear,
Avoid excitement.
These are the triggers that prompt
My wings
From their resting place deep inside.
