unyielding spirit

and temperament

pictured in me


through many lives

that I lived



mystical attribute from

a warrior of the eagle spirit

who inhabited in the

South American highland


caring empathy from

a daughter called Fatimah

in a small village

of the Middle east



and obstinate will

from the lover of a nobleman

who’s abducted

from Korea


purity and devotion

of a young intelligentsia

who threw his life

in French Revolution





learned from

the lives of otherness

that I lived




I aspire


what’s imagined

who we are
