SOMETIMES By Aj Maverick

Written by Editor

Sometimes, I find no essence in life,

this happens when I’ve just fought through thick mares

escaping the home of dreams 

where souls are held victims – in deep slumber.

Sometimes , my face are held up high

to watch every single thing in the sky.

The birds and their luring flight,

the clouds moving from left to right.

Sometimes , I feel I could write everything

and sometimes I feel poetry is nothing.

Sometimes , I want to go out of Earth,

to see what is in other planets.

Sometimes, I am the happiest man alive,

that can be found in my blissful smile.

And at other times, I’m as dejected

as a stone casted away during the making of a building.

Sometimes , most times I switch

between happiness and sadness.

Between right and wrong, deliberately.

Leaving a true cause for the wrong one, in extreme situations.

As a man , I maybe covetous or too wanting or not contented.

But I am human, wearing a wanting flesh. I will always desire 

because none of these Is decided by me but by the insatiable desires in my fleshy skin.
