Learn

when broken
learn
when happy
learn
when bored
learn
when you float and does not know what to do
learn just the same
when filled with idealism
learn
when fed with what you cannot swallow
learn again
when the times get rough and you want to kill yourself
learn, learn, learn
you still have many things to learn
faces of life
bodies of life
learn, learn, learn everything
do not surrender

for in truth, you do not do what you only want
you will also do what you are told to do
no questions asked
or you will be left out
or you will be not a part of the picture
this life
learn, learn, learn, always learn
do not surrender
live, learn, live, learn
you will soon do all that others will tell you
learn, learn and learn again

and sooner you will have learned everything
and then do what you want to do
with firm conviction
you know now what is right
and that is what you will do,

now without even being told
you have become yourself

but still learn, learn, and learn again
because

you might be wrong,
try thinking some more, learn
relearn, learn, learn, learn, forevermore....

Learn From The Ants

Did you say you
live in a box
where the entrance
and exit
look the same?

where the walls
are so strong
that to break it
you must obtain
divine permission?

did you say that
you were mislead
into getting into
said sameness that
you do not anymore
know which one is
you and which one
is them?

don't you know that
uniformity is their
design for peace?

that to deviate is
a rebellion punishable
by death? or stigmatization?

have you been isolated
and wonder if you can
still live for another day?

don't panic. There are
so many of us. If
you get out from there
we will be so crowded
outside the box
and you will surely
regret having come
out from there.

and those who dared
suffers the same fate
as those who didn't.

so keep the peace.
stay there and just be
quiet.Don't move.

Don't shake the box.
Don't hammer the wall.
Don't touch the door.
Don't nail anything
of the ceiling.

Just follow all the
instructions. Do not
ask for more. There is
nothing more.

I repeat, keep the peace.
Your life is short. And
the box is not worth
your struggle.

There is a right time.
To watch a sparrow
and then know it all.

What wisdom is left
Learn from the ants.

Learn To Dance

it is not a hard thing to do
dance, what is so hard with using your feet
for the lively hours
those vertical positioning of the bodies
for some horizontal desires,
dance, as though there is no more music
of the world tomorrow
be happy in short, be a part of this world's
celebration
this journey
where the earth having no feet and arms
simply floats
in space and takes that heavenly dance
with the sun and stars.

Learn To Wait

itis dark,
dusk.behind are shadows.
they are shapes
of flowers
behind this little darkness
that slowly
disappear giving way
to a brighter day.
just wait.
do not go back to sleep.
watch a new bloom
of day

go out and play.
