A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

sometimes I just want to live deep in the woods


Everyday I do my best

Playing society

Ware a smile as my suit

Bare the burden of everyday phonies


People pretending to be awake

When all they do is sleep

Chasing after fantasies

They believe they are concrete


I just want to breakout

Fly out of my cage

Walk among the borderless

In my own Ishmael tribe


The only time I feel real

Deep on natures trail

So far from civilization

The only noises I hear are the birds


Allah gives me strength

To live in the ruins of civilized society

Allah gives me strength

To live among the soul crushers
