Find Yourself


By Saif Alsaegh


Find yourself
Find yourself in hug that you will never have
Find yourself in country where there’s only the sea
Find yourself naked hallucinating the dreams of haven
Find yourself in a bottle of booze

Find yourself drowning in the Holy Water
Find yourself with deaf gods
Find yourself sleeping with your first crush
Find yourself straight – Find yourself gay
Find yourself with a bunch of hippies smoking marijuana under the Brooklyn Bridge
Find yourself with no words to write a poem

Find yourself becoming fat
Find yourself rotten
Find yourself running at 3 in the morning for no reason
Find yourself crying alone
Find yourself happy every day; yet lonesome

Find yourself becoming an atheist
Find yourself laying on a dirty couch masturbating
Find yourself in the seventies when everyone was high
Find yourself with same woman for 32 years

Find yourself with the stars dying between your hands
Find yourself in the White House
Find yourself with no money to buy cigarettes
Find yourself when the music ends
Find yourself without a penis
Find yourself with the poor
Find yourself under the rain walking and walking and cursing everyone

Find yourself without a family
Find yourself in wearing black
Find yourself in talking to angels
Find yourself after sex with a hooker
Find yourself protesting against yourself
Try
Keep trying,
You will never do.
