Beyond the Walls


Walls of intellectualism
block my freedom to dream,
Poetry breaks the blurred prism.

I leap in the air
on the back of a mare,
God whispers,
 “For this child, it’s fair.”

Sheltered by my  muse’s boldness,
the clouds I caress,
My pains I confess,
God whispers with a pure life
I’m blessed.

Back to the ground,
I’m the lotus in the mud
resisting all of temptations’ buds.

Unbound to previous births, this birth;
Unbound to the better-half, no half;
Beyond the walls my thoughts fly,
Up, high in no bound sky
deeper, deeper beyond the sky
 at my poetry
the Supreme smiles.
