As a child...As a child
As a child,
I knew no fear,
no sadness, no hunger,
I spend my day
if not in front of the table,
to eat, draw, paint,
playing with my dolls,
the cats, the dog,
and watching TV,
after I helped mom
with her stuff.
But I ate very slowly.
Maybe, sometimes, I feared the dark. Maybe.
I had a plush dog to guard me at night.
He was there my entire life, guarding me from under my head.
I wasn't afraid of the world,
of the dark, of the unknown,
of tomorrow, and I was ok with failing.
Soon, school started.
I knew no fear, no sadness,

that we are bound to lose.
Too occupied in line waiting,
for creativity to be let loose like a stray dog.
As if we will find home in this pursuit of happiness...
but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
They come and go, unending like 24 hour subway stations.
There's no break for this lonely man,
heaving every breathe of stale air
into my overused lungs...
Living in confined walls of flesh
