A Poem Written By The Side Of A Fishpond

(This is written to mourn all the victims of disasters around the world: WARRING, BOMBING, FLOODING, CRASHING, MOLESTING, MAIMING, DISEASING, BOKOBOMBING, etc.)

To dress in black and black
And sit in solitude to cry
While sorrows have occupied
All the vacancies of smiles
In the heart,
Are the symptoms of mourning


So who says to bury and mourn
The bereaved ones is bad?


When even a soul from pluto
Wil say “things
Are meant to be so”


So let me question thee:
Have you ever seen
The dead monkeys
That died naturally
Decaying on the tree?


That is because
They are buried.


Have you ever seen
The dead fishes
That died naturally
Floating on the stream?


That is because
They are buried


And have you not seen_
Sometimes in the sky_
A family of hawk
Dress in black and black
To circle a thick smoke
To sing elegy?


That is their sign
Of funeral rite.


And that is why
I’m also of the believe
That to bury and mourn
Our bereaved ones
Is a good thing to do


But let us bury and mourn
Our bereaved ones
By shedding our tears in silence
For few hours
But cherish their memories
And good deeds for life
Like the chimpanzees


Rather than shedding a lousy tears
For a week and quickly forget
Their memories and good deeds;


And most importantly
Their helpless families.
