Simple World

Simple World

The water rose till the glass that held it in broke into smaller pieces. The current had exploded and those caught in the waves were left to curse their luck. The lucky ones stared hard, and without any reason they let loose of vile words and curses. They threw their offense at the wounded ones without an offer to help. “Why should we?” Some of them questioned. “These filthy souls asked for the dirt.”

So the pain again receives no answers. The turmoil most mirrors suffer; always receiving accusing stares from the unassuming onlooker. Out of body, without hesitation the particle of mind will find its source. Believe it or not, the same goes for those who wish to drink from the fountain others reject.

No money to ask for a date. The broke man will use the words of strength or the strength in words to reach the heart of the red star. Never question the moth who buzzes close to the flame without papers. The sign says out but the arrow puts inwards. Laziness might be a disease but hard-work is hardly infectious.

The walk of confidence shows discipline and the slash of an angry man shouts victorious. Remember, the soul will cry but the body will remain for a week or so. The demands of the hardly-working man causes the less-able to always stay in comfortability. No wrong, as long as your own way works.

The embrace from the screams of the never visited place called Venetian. The lungs dries up from always saying what the bucket can handle. There! Nothing is left for this part, so onto another.

Coincidentally, the day came with full force; blazing bright. The flight to the top of the happy rhymes was rejected by those who feared the stars. The light all hope to find is in the darkness that most fear to live in. No one fears the cloud-dust up high, but we all fear the shadow, whose only desire is to reveal the unknown.

Though my dream ends here, I still have nightmares bright in the day. The advice is to go to that place where rejection came in abundance. Unlike what they say, the lessons in life is abundant and very unapparent. In darkness, we must first find that tunnel and then maybe later the light. And to think, life was so simple back then when peaches were extremely delicious.

My dreams though.

  1. This post is true to its tags – abstract, memoir, reminisce… Just mention it. From the writer’s perspective, i still try to connect these images

    @owseaman thanks, I appreciate feedback. Yeah, its quite tedious connecting these dots. Thanks again

  3. @wordsfromuyi, I tried hard to follow this, but I couldn’t discern what this was really about, other than a vague sense of tragedy.

    @TolaO thanks for even taking your time to discern this scatta scatta work of mine. As the title suggests, I was trying to explain how simple the world really is but in an abstract form. For example, some paintings e.g surreal art to be exact, require you to look at it at a specific angle or stare at it for some time to actually get the message. I believe my aim was not completely achieved with this, but hopefully with the part 2 which has already scheduled, I will show my progress in my desire to horn my abstract writing. In terms of the message in this work, i was trying to pass across the message of putting hard work in whatever one does in life. People will always talk about you no matter what you do, so find your place of peace and use the gift you have been blessed with. Lastly, we all go through life, and at times we go through bad times, but going through those type of times only makes us stronger and more equipped to live life. sorry for my lengthy reply. Cheers
