A Poem

Self Portrait For You Two

None of the birds fly without the weight.

For the man who hit the cat on the road

and never turned back,

The word of freedom is just an eyebrow

flew in the air another day.

For the man who's eyes are full of locked passwords,

His question about the peace is another name of war,

which never ends by the ego.

Dear little boy,

Do not fight your strength against your weakness.

Freedom, and peace should have buried next to the cat you killed.

Your eyes, lips full of empty promises,

Yet the world is painfully beautiful tonight.

I shall build the nest right above wind,

Till my son's 90th birthday.
