A written world (A poem by Phanuel Ayelum)

Aren’t we all just words

In a poem about a world

In which poetry is written

I know that may sound absurd

But

Aren’t we all just books

Exchanging glances and looks

When our stories seem similar

And we then decide to share plots enroute

Aren’t we all just written art

With similar beating hearts

Coming together as best sellers

Before we’re drawn apart

By societal demarcation

That provides the identification

That often hinders our coexistence

and integration…

But when the words in literature

No longer wish to live together

That creates the tragedy

Of a very wretched genre.

And sometimes we struggle to fit in

Into this world that we are split in

And for a moment we forget

That we’re all but literature –

The heavens had written…
