A Story by Mariam

We Edit life scenarios


We are young and desperate, we want to be lonely and independent, but we thirst for love and don’t avoid hatred. We seek for a single God in our hearts and hope that those attempts aren’t in vain. We smoke the pain away killing our lucent lungs slowly; we drink for happy moments trying to impress this whisky taste in the memory of our livers. We don’t need no education, but we cram to spite our desires. We read classical literature and protest against inanity. We swallow music like drugs against reality, our drunk smiles dance in pubs breaking the laws of gravity… In spring our tired bodies feel the sun rays dreaming about the parallel universe, which is called Delight. Wanting to wake up from this life, we lack time to feed our appetite. Time… which is just an illusion is not on our side. Time is our insidious enemy, the only one.

We despise fakes…We must be, not seem. We are not afraid to be accused of being self-centered, vainglorious, barbaric and straightforward. We want natural breasts, real stepping stones. We want to inhabit facts not dreams. And let our laws be illogical, for we don’t   make an idol of any kind or an image of anything in the heavens or on the earth or in the sea. We adopt and repeal our own eternal verities.

We are not afraid to be hurt, therefore we plunge into affairs and relationships. Though we live with wounds, our insidious enemy heals them. We are armed to the teeth, we learn languages. Let words rout the enemy; expressed in verse, they help us to be immortal.

We are dreamers. We hear heartbeats and read between the lines. As we contradict ourselves, let us be full of fight and never satisfied, but pray for us because we will never change, pray for forgiveness. Worshiping what we are, we live in sin and overcome temptations; we judge fairly, so don’t be in despair.

We are ashamed of our past, of our childish thoughts and now listening to the winds of change, when the future is in the air, we are thankful for any given chance to develop. We run from a minor problem and on the way while showing a clean pair of heels we ruin another insoluble, as there is no alternative.

WE such a tiny word including 2 letters, including you and me, those young resilient and sharp-witted  b******s, whose private initiative is to survive here now or never, end wars, compose songs, reduce prices, advertise mercy, plant happiness and teach those who cause sorrow. We are here to give the distressful uncertainty its revenge. Let us fulfill ourselves, since We Edit life scenarios…

Welcome to Air-Reading Flight into the dark. Local time is our enemy. Please make sure your seats are fully upright and all tray tables are in the upright and locked position. All cell phones and portable electronics must be turned off until the captain informs us that we have completed our ascent. We remind you that this is not a non-smoking/drinking flight. In the event of a decompression, smothering and intoxication an oxygen mask will automatically appear in front of you. Fasten your seat belts. We wish you all enjoyable reading.

The above words led me to your site as I flicked through your work, having received your request.

This post is incredible, the language is laid in such an expansive way, asking and answering questions as if your life depended on it. Your thoughts cling to your fingers yet reach out as if you need to both inspire and comfort.

WE, small word, WE who encompass the planet, WE who feel, dream, experience, love, suffer et al.

This post is more than.. ..

I ask just two questions: where did the English come from, what is your first language please??

Brilliant writing!

I saw the amount of text and I thought this poem was going to be too dense. But in actual fact it was over too quickly!
