by NASSIRA NEZZAR
Blank pages were awaiting me
on my desk
I picked up my pen
Staring at them gently
I tried to hug my wondered thoughts carefully
A deep breath was taken
A part of stress was thrown
A wall of hesitation was broken
But what’s the hell!!!
What’s the hell!!
A motion was built up inside of me
And I couldn’t recognize the feeling accompanying me
Joy or sadness!
Tranquility or rebellion!
Loneliness or congestion!
I stood up in front of the mirror
Pondering what’s the error
The clock attracted my attention
With its tic-toc…tic toc
The rain was falling on the window’s glass
Drop by drop…
the midnight shined on the clock and on my heart ..
But The fear of the world
the hesitation of words
had trembled me again
I thought of a break
But I didn’t take
So I came back to my desk again
Staring at the blank pages
Am I the emptiness of hearts?
Am I the contradiction of world?
Am I the heaviness of earth?
A thought with a joyful smile took off all the wonder
And hugged my mind saying
I’m your new story
Are you ready to get rid of bad memories
And hard circumstances
Throw your pains behind you
As you need me to fill your emptiness
I need you to take from my fullness
the love, the success, and the happiness
I’m like the earth
I carry the world on my shoulders
I always wait that human being irrigates me with love
I would like to see the faces happy not sad
But what should I say ?!!!
I’m your today
Hug me tight without care
of what was diminished in yesterday
or what will appear in tomorrow.
