#RaniaWrites: I Still Don’t Know

I Still Don’t Know

I still don’t know

Whether to live

Or to die

To believe

Or to deny

It’s hard to forgive

It’s harder not to try

Should I break the flow?

I still don’t know

 

And we carry on living

Here shines another sun

And we keep smiling

We say it’s just for fun

 

I still don’t know

Why some laugh

And others cry

Why some chase

And others hide

I’m too weak to resist

I search but never find

Will I ever say no?

I still don’t know

 

And we carry on living

Here shines another sun

And we keep smiling

We say it’s just for fun

 

Nothing is forbidden

Everyone’s forgiven

Tolerance is lost

And people are still laughing

Humanity’s under dust

But you are out there watching

Will corruption stop?

Will tears no more drop?

Will we break this flow?

I utterly still don’t know

 

And we carry on living

Here strikes another storm

And the world keeps smiling

There’s no content, only form.

 

 

* I wrote this over a decade ago when I was still a university student. I just thought it was the right time to share it with the world. I will be sharing more pieces in future blog posts. Meanwhile, let me know what you think in the comments section below 🙂

  1. You know that I have found a notebook with poems and small scribblings , paragraphs of thoughts from when I was in my early twenties even from school. I am so happy that I kept them and reading them again I remember each situation that led me to write down my thoughts. And come to think now, I so want to re-write some poems, i am sure when the right mood and setting comes I will be able to do that. Reading your writing I wondered what you were going through, maybe something personal out of a Lebanesey situation , i had that vibe. Cant wait to read some more 🙂

    1. I don’t remember the reason for writing this at all. I wrote many songs, I guess this was meant to be a song, given the chorus and different verses. I used to write stories from the early age of 11 or 12. I kept everything 🙂 Please share your writings via your blog too! 🙂
