Wherever I Go, I Will Always Carry You Along

Goodbye is the hardest word to say. This is a poem coming from someone who is about to leave an environment he is so attached to.

Nearer it comes

This time never seem to come
but right from the beginning
it stood by the door
and never knocked.

Nearer it comes
but acting like a mirage
allowing me privileges,
opportunities, experiences
and Life itself.

Friends & Acquaintances

Is it the Joy
of having new friends and family?
Or drinking from the cup
of new acquaintances?

Is it the adventure
of a different environment?
And its ability to
create a new personality in me?

I'll surely miss them all
and all that took part
in making my completeness a reality.

to friends & instructors

I divide my heart into six portions
to my friends,
who are a bridge
to where I am today
and served as the paddle
for my sail to greatness.

to my instructors,
both great and small
who showed me the path
with less thorns and stones
and open my eyes
to see beyond the hill.

to dears & mere acquaintances

to my 'dears'
who balanced my Life
and made my manly wholeness
an actualization.

to simple acquaintances
who shared the fruit of life
from a distance
and protected our respect
like a new born child.

to critics & haters

to critics
who increased the magnitude of my consciousness
and are always there
when I'm about to fall.
Irrespective of their motive
have kept my reputation
as strong as the toughest compounds of carbon.

To haters,
you make me stay in the right path
and refrained me
from crossing the thin line
between fantasy and reality.
Notwithstanding your contempt
my love for and to you remains
bountiful and pure.


Goodbyes are the hardest words
to say.
But your smiles
are in my genes
and your helping hands,
make up my memories.
And your love is what I see
when my eyes stay closed.

Though we say goodbyes now
I'll always carry you along
wherever I go.
In tears, I say..................

The Soul Talkers

You can get my recent heavily poetic Novel titled "The Soul Talkers". Here is a summary of it:

A very serious student and a poet (Larissa) who is caught up in events of loving a very disciplined and 'one of a kind' type of guy (Don). As a public figure, Don is faced with the challenge of having lots of admirers but definitely knows what he wants. His introduction into the Soul Talkers contest by Larissa is the beginning of the 'acquaintance adventure' but another lady (Rachael) is there to capture him. As they approach the final stages of the contests, relationships between these three become more dramatic which are even more complicated by Rachael's circus of Men (her ex: Chamberlain and her admirer: Mahmud). The circle continues and just in the right time when Don's Heart desire is going in one direction towards Larissa, a twist occurs and love becomes hate with Rachael now on the advantage side. Switching directions makes him realize who he really wants to be with and with the finals of the soul talkers competition at stake, the two ladies stand a chance to lose something or even lose everything. The creativity in combining drama, campus Life, Football and poetry all in one story makes it unique, overwhelming and beyond words.
