A Poem of a Lost Liberty

This photo was taken by me in Petra, Jordan in 2017.

This photo was taken by me in Petra, Jordan in 2017.

a chaos a mess

My unstoppable walk into abyss

Anarchist voices shout in my head

But I’m silent where I stand

I sit,

Veins are becoming salient

Yet I feel life withdraw out of my hand

I merge with the galaxies

I turn blue

As violet as the skies could be

Where did I do wrong

Captivating my wilderness?!

Or setting the wolves free into me?!

I just sought after the sun

The eagles to raise me

But I was drowned in the darkness of the cage

Sneaking behind liberty every single day.
