G U L P I N G !

Know how some people drink a full glass of water in two or three gulps? They don't even breathe man! Not only with water, with everything else.. With driving.. Driving their own lives.. Even with their own kids.. Their flesh and blood.. EASY GUYS! Have we become so greedy or is it my eyes?
"I heard this old story before
Where the people keep on playing for their metaphors
But don't leave much up to the imagination,
So I, wanna give this imagery back
But I know it just ain’t so easy like that
So I turn the page and read the story again
and again and again
It sure seems the same, with a different name
We're breaking and rebuilding
and we're growing
always guessing
Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
Were trying but where is this all leading?
We'll Never Know
It all happened so much faster than you could say disaster
Wanna take a time lapse and look at it backwards
Find the last one and maybe that’s just the answer that we're after
But after all we're just a bubble in a boiling pot
Just one breath in a chain of thought
We're moments just combusting
We feel certain but we'll never, never know
It sure seems the same, give it a different name
We're begging and we're needing
and we're trying and we're breathing
Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
We're helping, rebuilding and we're growing
Never Know
Knock, knock coming door to door
To tell ya that their metaphor is better than yours
And you can either sink or swim things are looking pretty grim
If you don’t believe in what they're spoon feeding
Its got no feeling so I read it again and again and again
It sure seems the same so many different names
Our hearts are strong our heads are weak
We'll always be competing
Never knowing
We're shocking but we're nothing
We're just moments, we're Clever but we're clueless
We're just human, amusing and confusing
But the truth is all we got is questions
We'll Never Know
Never Know
Never Know"

Re: optimistic. I'm not so about issues that directly matter, like israeli palestinian conflict, or economic and political development in the middle east etc. But I'm optimistic America will be much much more reasonable and less destructive when pursuing its self interest. This to my mind translates into a quieter more sensible world than that of the past 8 years, it has been a turmoil, a roller coaster of negative energy.

Sara, your poems and posts show the fragile crystal that you are. Be good and stay good.

p.s. any better in making rice yet? I managed to screw up my rice for the first time in years a week ago. But as I advised ya before, I used it to make sushi :))

sara said...


It definitely has been a turmoil :(

Ya Rab..

And Mohamed, that compliment turned me red for a sec there.. Thanx :$

P.S. Firstly, thanx for remembering :) Secondly, I tried it one more time after that and it was still bad :( My sis gave it a shot afterwards & it turned out great.. So, I didn't try again..
Keep up with the sushi & share it with the world :)

sara said...
