The world around the corner

Poem by: Benyoucef

Summary

Life is not just what we see and what we can prove, and denial isn't getting us to the truth, so come and take a peek behind the curtain our minds sewed....This poem has been trying to find its way out of my heart for a while, and when it did, well, I wrote it in a couple of days, so to all of those trying to release their inhibitions, look aropund you, hear the world...simply, everybody dies but not everybody lives.

The two lanes way we call a life

is just too narrow for my senses

And all the books and all the minds

are just a couple of useless lenses

If we were to create the world

we would have painted black and white

for colors haven’t been discovered

because of high travel expenses

So then we took a harmful care

in squeezing all our brains and paintings

just to come up with a grey hair

that was the answer then the tenseness

Oh if you look just for a while

through my brown eyes and dirty glasses

You’ll see the colors of the Nile

free of its tears and thorny fences

You’ll see how a rock can resemble

a cloth of silk inside the Canyon

and hear the stars silently tremble

chanting with Allah’s references

How dull of you to drill a hole

through which you see nothing but death

you have to break this logic wall

lo and behold, there are your answers

It’s funny how you can’t conceive

the world without the lines and angles

just take a step and you’ll believe

for faith’s trip to you is endless

No one can put me in the darkness

unless I choose to close my eyes

If I can make room for the Loch Ness

And not for God then why have senses?

The two lanes way we call a life

with all the smiles that we have torn her

has failed to make us realize

that there’s a world around the corner
