It is really awesome for me to be able to share someone else s work on this blog too, today's post is a piece of poetry written by one of my friends, Na'or.
Na'or Alfassi Berman is a student at Western Springs and is part of the MAD family. But he also happens to be this crazy rad poet. His poems are thought provoking, emotive and rather inspiring! It's my privilege to say me posting of his poems will become a regular fixture on my blog.
Here's the first one ...
To play cards is to have a shot at life.
You are shuffled about. not in order..a mess.
As your turn comes around you have matured, your hand improved.
You are strenthed.
Then re shuffled, left to bare on your own, as wild cards are thrown about.
But yet you play on.
you lay your self down and pick your self up.
You temporally decide it's over then question yourself and come
back to bet again.
You have a taste of success, and a tolerance of the bitterness of
failure. As this happens you grow wiser
You develop strategy, you comprehend humility.. patients,. joy
and acknowledge never to assume.. as the world is still to be
rejoiced, still to be fulfilled still to be accepted.
