basic

the short poem
like the short life
may not be the best thing
but generally
it's
easier.

this is a short
poem at the end
of a
long
life

sitting here
looking at
you
now

then
saying
adios!


"the angry, the empty, the lonely, the
tricked.
we are all
museums of fears"



"fools turn other fools into idols.
the people waste their lives and their minds
sitting in the dark

as more and more movies ars made."

" theres time to weep
a time to die
and a time to live"


"regardless

the nights you fight best
are
when all the weapons are pointed
at you,
when all the voices
hurl their insults
while the dream is being
strangled.

the nights you fight best
are
when reason gets
kicked in the
gut,
when the chariots of
gloom
encircle
you.
the nights you fight best
are
when the laughter of fools
fills the
air,
when the kiss of death is
mistaken for
love.

the nights you fight best
are
when the game is
fixed,
when the crowd screams
for your
blood.

the nights you fight best
are
on a night like
this
as you chase a thousand
dark rats from
your brain,
as you rise up against the
impossible,
as you become a brother
to the tender sister
of joy and

move on

regardless."

"as long as the world
is full of so many
serious writers
I'll nerver have
insomnia."


JUST LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVE THIS MAN !!!

Zianour لا والله يا اسلام مفيش لينك
أنا استعرت الكتاب من مكتبة الكلية وعجبني اكتر من الحب كلب من الجحيم ،يمكن لاني قريته بالانجليزي اما الحب كلب من الجحيم فالترجمة الفرنسية سيئة
الراجل ده مذهل بجد
