Something rambles inside.
Turning to a scream.

Between two traffic lights
Speed of rage
Less than a moment,
Burns and destroys
A life time.

Before we know
The last ship of hope
Sails away
from the Island, in flames.

This thief
That steals my peace
Is the uncontrolled anger
Rooted in unreasoned,
Repeated memories.
A lifetime patterns
Chained to my mind.

I asked God,
Haven’t you made me enlightened?
Then,
What is this?

He took my hands
Led me to an ocean,
Where,
I could see
The open horizons,
With flying pelicans.

Where,
his breeze washed
Any unreal
With her magical touch.

Where,
Light was lurking inside
Till,
The poison in my vein
Dried out.

My heart opened her palms,
Anger fell out
Smashed in pieces.
Empty space
Suddenly got full
With joy and laugh.

Innocent children
Forgiveness and love
In open fields,
Playing with butterflies,
Careless of tomorrows
Waiting to grow,
Experiencing now.

I asked God,
Haven’t you made me enlightened?
Then,
What is this?

He pulled me closer,
And closer.
Still,
He is pulling me.
