When a woman
Holds the pen
She doesn’t write
She just draws
Voiced smiles
On the face of a moon
Serene and bright

When a woman
Holds the pen
She embraces the words
From the remote
Corners of the world
Into her warm bosom
To melt into sentences
Where meanings love to
Come into being an’ blossom

When a woman
Holds the pen
She would give that
Ancient forbidden fruit
Yet, not to curse
Out of a paradise
Lost, stolen, or sold
Rather, to open our eyes
To explore the hidden
Territories of beauty untold.

A thundering cry against women’s Rape

Come on!
What are you waiting for?
The slow deaf justice
Has given you the green light
To rape one, two and even more
Waiting for you
To rape a whole nation that
It is supposed
To be caring for.

Rewarding your satanic desires
You may go on and on
And, again … on
Yet, let me tell you one last word:

As you rape so will you reap
Yes, you will reap all shades
Of sufferings unbearable
In your body of a predator
In your heart of stone
In your soul dormant
To wake up to a day
Of no dawn, of no peace
Fallen off Eternity.

There’s nothing separating
Your rape from that reap
But a period of time,
Many or only some
Days, weeks, months,
Or even long years
And all, all will never stop
Your unspeakable reap
That will inevitably come.

To a soulmate beyond place and time

We have once met in the past
But surely
We will meet in the future
Our life on earth will not last
But surely
We’ll live to rewrite the Scripture
We are taken by desire an’ lust
But surely
We’ll make of man God’s best creature
For maybe
We were cast into moulds of dust
But surely
He can make of us a divine sculpture
Yes, maybe
We won’t get what we want so fast
But surely
Step by step we’ll walk the adventure
Maybe …
And MAYBE has never been a must
Is our hymn, language and culture.
