le chemin confus: Omar Moqeet


le chemin confus

by Omar Moqeet*

 

holier than thou response

the imperfect doesn’t require a hand to save it

from falling off the cliff

the true journey

le chemin confus

 

of the two roads that diverged in the yellow wood

it is the one most traveled

imagine frost’s surprise

 

eschew the upper

echelon..

the product of the smokeless flame

the product of mud, and despised water

cousins

pride is proud of his followers

the only creation that would rather

keep their head over the clouds

 

infancy brings me happiness

i replied to the caller

let the world work in its own devices

while i examine them so i can escape

 

life takes visa

the only prostitute

that takes credit

freedom leaves me a slave

of desire..

* Br. Omar Moqeet is an Islamic activist who is part of Young Muslims Chicago.  He works heavily with the Muslim youth in the Chicagoland area.
