Identity

What would a bullet say on its way to an innocent boy’s skull somewhere in the world where it can triumph and conquer over man? a memory flashes here and there, his family on a wall lined up and killed like lambs no one did understand what their blood for, was spilled, but I doubt the boy still recollects; Oh no! I know what I’m here for— I saw the purpose in his small brain— like all these soldiers who died in vain, the boy’s mind was thinking of but one thing— like all of us, the boy was only playing a game. Identity is collection of poems about who we are and what we might find if we really look inside and mean to learn and face whatever we find.

The Scream

What do you believe in, religion or man? What could happen if an alien from Mars comes and he is not what we expected him to be? What do you belong to, or do you belong at all? I belong to no country… I belong to no religion… I belong to no race— a color mismatch can take your reason away; all your eyes can see is but a shade of who I am… The Scream is a collection of poetry from the heart with no veil to block the light from reaching who we are and what we have come to be in the world of today.
