What more have you got for me?
How many ahas! How many alas
Will I grasp you whole at last?
Must I revolve along with you
Round and round
Revising the past?
Or run against the wheel of wonder
Setting off sparks
Creating a thunder.
Would you be so kind to give me insight
And a beautiful mind of a child
To enjoy the rain and not join the army of rats who run away
To a hiding place where the flowers don’t bloom
World, I’m asking to please keep me full
With what I am
And rise above grudgy old men
Who too once were ten
And wanted to be astronauts because the earth wasn’t big enough
But now the universe feels claustrophobic
For self proclaimed heroics
You put many wonders, hungry eyes and a big soul in a small girl
Giving her constant lessons to learn
So when they ask who’s responsible for this unsettled thing
I point to you
The town where she was born is shredded to last stone
She may have died along with it
If it wasn’t for the storm in her
The house where I grew up is tumbling apart
The art of leaving safety nest is planted in my heart.
World, I ask of you one thing
To keep me on my toes
And stir of those who have you figured out
Because you are a chaos
As soon as one is standing on two feet
You shake the ground.
