Yassin's Poems

Pack Up

what do I have to pack it up?
where can I go?
I am just a stranger
for decades I have been looking
for a kind heart
for an open mind
for soul's mate

since Adam fallen from the sky
I have been searching for the promised land
I went to Greece
learned Ploto's wisdom and argument
but never saw
his utopian city!
I read Torah,Gospel and Koran
but no where on the plant
can justice and God's kingdom
to be found!
I memorized the communist manifesto.
I shouted for equality
but never lived with people
in socialist community!

certainly I am not a tourist
even not a traveler,
for decades I have been walking
packing my mind,
packing my heart,
searching to find the land
where people are free
living in peace
feeling and receiving the love
Preserving humans dignity.

now.how ever
I have more "bad news" for you
finally I discovered
what we saw, was a Mirage
we are living in the desert
no matter which way or how far we go
theres no droop of water "to be find"!
