Abandoned

Poem By Mahfooz Ali

You told me, 'I'll be there for you'
whispered sweet nothings in my ear
but when I seeked your guidance
found that you were never here
You told me, 'I was special'
and nothing like the others
but we were never together
really, no more than lovers
You told me, 'I got your back'
anytime you need a love
but whenever I would call
you abandoned me again
I told you, 'I was hurting'
but ignorance led your heart
I told you, 'I was dying'
but you never gave a solace!
I told you, 'It was over'
still you begged for me to stay
I told you, 'If I do'
things'll have to go my way
But you didn't want to listen
so now I'm thinking through
all the pain you I suffer
now that I am abandoned.

I Love My Family So Much.

To be a part of a family like mine
is so divine
where love is shown
hurt is shared

Open Them

Open them, open them
let the light shine,
Release the binds
of chains and twine.

On The Brink Of.

A wicked way the wind blows strong,
tighten the craft and strengthen the tie.
Ripping the sheets from the line does the
wind torment?

Because I Knew

I remember,
as a very young child mom's loving touch.
It had a delightfully delicious feel of warmth
and security upon my senses.

Why I Am Writing This?

Have you ever wonder why things change?
Why minutes are minutes,
or why hours are hours?
Have you ever wondered?

Thank You, Father

Fathers hold you when you have bad dreams
And they comfort you when all is lost it seems.
Fathers teach you to dribble a basketball and shoot a free throw
And they lead you as you grow.
