Exploitation

Exploitation!

This is exploitation
Of your deepest fears
Of your darkest woes
Of your scariest thoughts;

What is beneath
Will someday surface

What will you do then
To keep from self-destruct?

A catalyst:
That is what you are.

Three steps forward
Perhaps necessitate
One step backwards.

Ourselves

We all try
In our films and music
To capture and express
The human condition and emotions

Cos’ we don’t know them
We seek to unravel them
To reflect them in our works
To showcase them to ourselves

Though more importantly
It is simply because
We are afraid of them
As how we are afraid of ourselves

What we don’t know
Scares us
Particularly
That which is known to us

As ourselves.

By and By

(5 min challenge, midnight)

We sat about talking about frisbees,
The disk that flies free in the sky,
Where it goes where we direct it to,
Floating at times with the wind that blows;

Lovely is the path that is charted ahead,
Sailing nicely as the breeze caresses its surface,
Knowing in safe arms and paradise it will land,
Let loose by a warm and tender release of a nice firm hand;

But then from hence too I shot out a boomerang,
Where I watch it go hoping it will come back,
Taking out what it was intended to break loose,
Yet from release the feeling was that it’ll not return soon;

It drifted along with the casual flow of the wind,
By and by in the distance the boomerang was lost,
A course unknown and a path that is yet to exist,
It never once bade a goodbye as it disappeared into the sunset.
