Fear & Ammunition

Sirens go off in my mind

Do I stand or jump in blind

Questions, with no answers, burn my time

I stay, overlooking the ocean

Mulling over another question

What’s the difference between an island and a prison

Like the one I see off in the distance

Not much, says my intuition

Just a matter of personal perception

Like fear behind false bravado and ammunition

An orphan asking a King for fulfillment

Forget that deaf isn’t the same as not listening

-rome


I dedicate this poem to all the innocent children that have been killed unjustly in Syria and Palestine. Our world is being ruled by leaders who claim to do the best for their people but instead do only the opposite. They hide behind false words, inaction, and a desire to help themselves.

All of us have in one way or another an impact on someone else. Don’t take this responsibility lightly. Be just to those who rely on you. Whether that is your neighbor, your son, daughter, spouse, parent, friend, dog, cat, or a tree. Every living thing deserves nothing but the best from each of us.


I would love to hear what this poem meant to you. Comment below and leave your thoughts.
Much love!

Sold Opportunity

Liquid courage dripped
Dreams and reality flip
Come, take another sip
Candy disguised poison

Classic guitar riff
Fireworks rained, sky lit
Opportunity behind a soft kiss
Sold it for a red lipped mistress

We Are

I am not embarrassed
I am not defeated
I am not humiliated
I am green
I am white
I am the blood that pumps in the veins of a 170 million
I am the water, the food, the cloth that covers the masses
I am not the American dream but the bread and butter that feeds the homeless
I am the flag that hangs overhead dancing in the wind
I am the sound of a million fans cheering their team
I am the hearts of a nation beating in unity
This is for victory
This is for our self-imposed humility
This is for the times when everyone said we couldn’t but we still believed
We showed the world that we dont need to be marked demographically
That we are proud to be who we are and we are the working class
We are sweat dripping down faces of mothers and fathers
We are the bread makers that dont have money to feed our sons and daughters
We are a nation divided but if one falls we all stand shoulder to shoulder
We arent the butt of every joke seen on NBC
We might have accents but we still swallow perfect english better then professors with English PhDs
The world might cast us as the deadliest nation in the world, but the meaning of hospitality isnt known until you stay in our allies
Misunderstood to the point that we have become a different species
Ignorant of the mistakes other nations have made
Forgetting Hiroshima and Nagasaki
Say we are all terrorists
Call us enemies
Shout names that degrade us but we dont care
We know who we are
And we are a people bound by calamities
But we are also a people bound by smiles in the face of defeat
We are the poor, the weak, the hungry
But amongst us are the rich, the able, the ready
To defend the colors of our country
To be the front thats never shown on tv
To be the dam that stops the flood coming to our shores
To work together in times of dark in hopes that one day we will once again be what we stood for
So no, I am not ashamed
I am not embarrassed
I am not silenced
I am proud
I am green
I am white
I am the love that runs through veins
I am the national anthem
I am different tongues all speaking the same language
I am victory
I am determination
I am waking up at the crack of dawn to sow fields with a horse and fist full of seeds
I am dirt roads, and roofs made with belief
I am not my corrupt government
I am breaking stereotypes
I am the youth, the old, the now
So for all the people who pushed us aside
For all the people who never took our side
Who never believe in our fight
Its not a fight to the death
Its not a fight for global control
Its a fight against corruption
To defeat violence with peace
To say look this is what we achieved
To say we are not only green
We are not only white
We are a prism to take all the colors and unite
We stand for decency
We stand for freedom
We stand for all the things you do
We are Pakistan
We are India
We are broken borders from which love flows freely
We are the world
We. are. unity.

16 Days & Forever Nights

I love her like the desert greets rain
Mountains & valleys, echo her name
Rumsha, I whisper inside hollow caves
Fuchsia and red so beautiful the sky stained

Evenings in summer on blankets we lay
Catching fireflies like memories we make
Held in jars atop fireplaces in December
Our light, our guidance that day we remember

I leave her once, I say never again
Three and four come to keep us sane
This is our ballad, a slow dance in the rain
For after this not even time can take us away

I love her like the sun graces the moon
With every ocean crash, my heart beats anew
Rumsha, I whisper I am made for you
Rumsha, I whisper I love you

-rome

*Written for my best friend, my amazing half, my soul mate, my wife.

Clouds of Jane

She lets out a soft sigh
Hesitation between her thighs
Looks up, asks God why
Eyes mimic an angry sky

If only ifs could be met again
Moments shared over cherry flame
Solitude and hopeless bane
Wonders if oceans drown with rain

Another night and its heavy stains
Drifting in life’s blurred out lanes
Typhoon clouds of her friend Jane
Lost her soul, a misplayed game

– rome

Mistold Fortune

Smoke danced like shadows on the wall
Puppets moved with no strings after all
Look here lets distract your mind
Another zombie to unite humankind

Mistold fortune read you’ll live forever
Buy more, let it create your happy ever after
Take these ruby diamonds, they’ll keep your soul warmer
Never let blood come before your dollar

Empty graves filled with golden coins
Trees heavy with crows lazy cawing
Another civilization in my kingdoms rule
Whispered the one who made them all a fool

– rome

Diamonds & Damns

Outstretched hands collecting mercy
Some pressed against rocks wishing hopelessly
Others in a cross, sitting patiently
Hands of time ticking relentlessly

Winters grace upon rosy summer cheeks
Light of dawn, a nightly chase
Some lost to worldly escapes
Others drowning in fermented grapes

Thoughts etched on foreheads deep
Hearts hardened by constant defeat
Pressure points and fall leaves
Diamonds sparkle, a damn unleashed

– rome
