It Was You

when papa did not believe me
it was you who encouraged me
when i was down and was about to give up
it was you who was beside me
saying 'there are other options
there are other ways
life must move on! '
when the school considered me a hopeless case
you did not believe it
saying 'there are other better schools'
when i left home because the family was unbearable
it was you who said
'when you get tired searching for yourself
please come back'

it was you Mama
who made all things possible for me
it was you all the way
giving me air to breathe
space to move myself freely
it was you who gave me a sense of
home.

i am offering myself
as a prayer for you.

It Was Your Grace That I Still Love

not your rage, not your age,
not your rashness to jump into a hasty conclusion,
not your hardheadedness,
not your anger, or hate, or
unwanted pregnancy,
not your cries for help when i was away
not your hangover, your hang-ups
not your angst,

it was still your grace that i love
the one which tries to figure out why things did not happen the way we planned it.
it was your patience which keeps on saying
till death.

It Will Always Be Still For My Own Good

last night i was almost caught

do not ask me what it was

i was almost caught and my body

shook like a vibrating fork and my

mouth shut off like a door and no

matter how she tries to open it

something inside me refused to

let her in.

if she caught me, i could have known

how the Sphinx did the extinction upon

itself.

somehow there was this ambivalence

if i were caught i could have been free.

but i was not caught

and so i remain in this self-imposed enclosure

i feel safe. But i am unhappy.

there are always two sides of our choices.

but i trust my instincts. Whatever i choose

it will always be still for my own good.

last night, i know that feeling, how to live

and how to die.

  9200.     

It Will Always Be You

Wherever I am or in whatever
Situation I find myself
Be it in prayer or
Play or serious consideration
Of me & her,
It will always be you in my mind,
My soul,
It will always be you, in all my sins
Today, tomorrow,
It will always be you, how can I ever
Learn to be
True to myself,
as it will always be you
In my brain
Damaged till the end, it will always be you, how

Can I ever imagine myself always loving you,
Always imagining you
While I make love to her, while I move around my world

I become so ugly in you and we become
So ugly like wrinkles and scars
But it will always be you,
& me, I swear, I inser always you & me in there,
And no one else,
It will always be you,
How can I be so unforgiving?

How can I be so dishonest?
Always in sin, always in the ecstasy in the wrong workings
Of my mind,
It will always be you just the same,

The world will never know, because it
Cannot understand, I can feel it.
It has only the cruelty for it,
Like savage to a slave.

Reverse me, tumble me, and hate me,
It will always be you. You will always never know.
