by Zaki

a birth
a death
while they all slept
i cried
the tears of twenty years

my sorrow blows in the wind
a waterfall of love
denied opportunity
or access to a future

intense negotiations
with the Powers
that be
a strong longing to be
whole again
expressive ideas and questions
to ponder, lacking
the knowledge of great men

spiritually advised by the wise
my eyes deny my disguise
as a solemn gaze
takes hold of my soul
i'm losing my self
