I Find Myself Scattered…

lost-memories-behind-my-longing-window-franziskus-pfleghart

I find myself scattered amid times age-old

In myths beyond expression, In tales untold

In sinful thought of a saint with heart unsure

In glare of kindness that emits from a whore

In pure love between a couple,weirdest of all

Man as tiny as a dwarf, Girl so fat and tall

In the winds that blow away veil of a wise girl

With face painfully ugly, eyes green like pearl

I find myself scattered amid times age-old

In myths beyond expression, In tales untold

In wildest fears of Syrian Refugees in a boat

In eyes of Peshawar child, knife at his throat

In the fire that burn Gaza’s screaming new-born

In bullets fired at her mother with ripped womb

In hopeful eyes of tiny girl fighting with Cancer

In ungratefulness of healthy finding no answer

I find myself scattered amid times age-old

In myths beyond expression, In tales untold

In the Kaaba of my soul, In Prayers unheard

In pleasant sounding sad chirps of a caged bird

In emptiness of Namaz, In pleasures of Love

In finding Him in heart, not in the sky above

I find myself scattered everywhere but in me

Help me gather up myself, Please let me BE!

  1. Ufff….ufff….ufff… I sit here in awe thinking of the words to write that would do justice to this…… gosh. Every single line was my favorite…

    “In emptiness of Namaz, In pleasures of Love
    In finding Him in heart, not in the sky above
    I find myself scattered everywhere but in me
    Help me gather up myself, Please let me BE!”

    Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant !!

  2. i am at loss of words in expressing myself after reading this… this is too heavy and so beautifully written, I hope peace reigns on Earth one day. Amen

  3. I don’t watch the news often because I feel much like you describe in your poem. The tragedies that permeate news casts and evidence of broken humanity weighs heavy on my heart. I hope you find some peace.

  4. It is so sad what all is going around in our world.
