Poem: Done with drama

Updated: May 31, 2021


I am

Done with drama

As a human

Self-aware

You know the type

Of drama I mean


If you don't then ask yourself if you are

A frenzied maracca

Shakes where stakes are high


If you are a

Dreamer and placeholder

A seeker and sleeper

If you are

Now

You know the type of a drama I mean

The drama that keeps your head heavy


Your eyes wet

Your back hunched

Your voice fearful

The drama

The DRAMA


That keeps you hiding in the wings

Rather than on the thrust stage


Shadows not lime light

It has taken thousands of miles

5,128 to be precise


Back and forth

Back

Forth


Crunched up

Squeezed into an airline seat


For a simple realisation

Amidst the chaos is calm

Amidst the calm is chaos


Amidst the chaos is calm

Amidst the calm is chaos


An entire forest cannot console the tears

Or soothe a beating angsty pulse

An entire ocean cannot take away cruel words


Fields upon fields have no use for hate

But in a bustling metropolis that doesn't once hush

Hammering sounds, beeps and barks


A breath can be calmed

A smile can be found

There are smiles with eyes


Love through hugs

A stillness

Simplicity


Amidst the chaos is calm

The calm comes from the faces

The faces I choose

The faces

That choose me

I now seek

Eyes that are etched

with the same three words

That my macula holds

Done with drama
