SOLILOQUY

How do I find my way?

In this jungle of life

Where fangs chase on this careless mother earth

As claws chase in the indifferent sky?


II

How do I find my way?

When hurtful thorns are ever ready to butcher my skin

And have them on their necks as conquerors?

Hisses with poisonous spittle

Drive vehicular air

Air which has promised breath until old age umbrellas!

How? 

Just how do I find my way?


III

Owl eyes hide in the dark to scare

Hungry lionesses hunt in a determined chase

Cunning alligators act chameleons to mislead

As my sunlight serves its lifetime in an imprisoned dark cloud

How? Just how do I find my way

In this jungle where everything hunts in ambition?
