People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

Poet's Corner / I'm Having Trouble Leaving Yesterday Behind

Yesterday it was rage, today it's a sadder rage.

sulphuric soul

 as her face melted,

her heart burned,

a mask of hate,

his prideful scowl,

thoughts of her mother,

bent in submission,

thoughts of a daughter,

desolate dream,

adhan echoing,

her unheard scream,

acid from mecca,

burning in blood,

why, oh allah,



an adhan is the 5 times daily muslim call to prayer.
