Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey

Things may not appear as they are suppose to


Tomorrow you may hear whispers

Of what might have been

Adopted ideas by pilgrims

Birth to death eternal sin


I’ll never push you towards the gold

You’ll have to get there on your own

I’ll never hold you from the edge

You’ll have to look out for your own


A whisper pregnant with meaning

Won’t sink you like a loud stone

Be careful to who you listen to

Hear the words that are never said


I will push you towards the lightning

I will protect you from the storm

You’ll never be close to the edge

I’ll be the one to look out for you


Walk on

Walk on

Walk on

Walk on
