If Only I Were

If Only I Were
If only I were a bird

Spreading my wings

With a few flaps

Lifting of the ground

Soaring high above
If only I were a wolf

Roaming with the pack

Wouldn’t be as lonely

Howling at the full moon

Surrounded by family
Leaving the world below

Chasing soft fluffy clouds

Racing invisible winds

All the pain melts away

Higher into the sky I fly
Running through the woods

Feeling rushes of wind

Creatures watches cautiously

As the pack breezes by

Without any care nor worries
In the air or ground

Feeling free as can be

Only in daydreams

Fantasy are reality

Wishes granted by magic

Enchantments, remedy to everything

Worthy Of Life

Gifted with life

Life’s energy flows

Through each being

Coexisting, living together

Finding life’s purpose
Woyrthy or unworthy

Doesn’t apply; not ever

Granted with life’s gift

Regardless of reasons

Regardless of our beliefs

Evidence? We are here
Ending another life

Doesn’t show strength

It reveals weakness

Upon those already on their knees

Begging for mercy

In chains, bounded by mistakes

Shackled; without any escape

Tied by the wooden cross

Where life is taken away
Gift of life

Stolen by thieves

With hidden agendas

Such is the way of the world

Losing sight of mercy

Kindness, forgiveness, compassion

A long forgotten trait

Eternal Quest

E ver searching

T imeless endeavours

E ndlessly longing

R eality disillusioned

N ightmares frequently

A wake yet asleep

L onely are the steps ahead

Q uestioning purpose

U nknown destinations

E ternity of timelessness

S earching, always seeking

T ruth which awaits

Tanka ( Scorpio )

Most misunderstood

Amongst all the signs of stars

Different mindsets

Difficult expressing self

Loneliness preferred option
