By Ahmad Al-khatat

Lately I started having a close

relationship with the last day

of my life right after, death will

collect my spirit somewhere

near the broken gates of hell

I recalled two young girls,

laughing like headless chickens

in the cage of Animal Farm,

while George Orwell is alerting them

from the danger of the wild pigs

I remembered the tailor told

me that he sewed my first cloth

and will use the same thread

and needle to sew my last coffin in case,

if I will ever be reborn again

the first day, I went to school

all the kids were playing and laughing but

not me, I was dreaming of the swing

that I was sitting on it as it seemed

the cords` will hang me one day

I cried before, today, and tomorrow

not because I want to rest a bit longer.

I wept for realizing that death will be

the solution to end the darkness that

will sings for the last time above my tomb
