Not Missing Each Other A Bit

You don’t miss me

And me neither Missy

Life is full of shocks and surprises

To the foodies, everything is about business

These atypical days: power, money, jewelries

Fad, vanity, cars, valuables and annuities.

 

Mwe, on the other hand, I am about

Love, respect, decency and a lot

Of interesting intangible stuff

You don’t think that ‘enough is enough’

Life is full of surprises and shocks

As the sea is, without a doubt, full of sharks.

 

Nothing under the sky is eternal

Everything under this huge tunnel

Will one day turns to fine dust

Nothing tangible is a dire must

For my ego. I care solely about humans

Knowledge, books, papers, pencils and pens.
