unyielding spirit

and temperament

pictured in me

 

through many lives

that I lived

untold

 

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

 

sorrow

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

 

Hope

 

I aspire

beyond

what’s imagined

who we are
