The letter S

Solitude is the silence of self-love
and is slippery like silk.

Sin is when I pray “God protect me from what I want”
and I don’t mean it.

Sitting up straight with neutral spine and closed eyes
is one way to start meditating

still, strap your demons in ‘til you’re ready,
lest seventy more come knocking.

Superman is who I really am beneath all this Clark Kent
all this manliness, indecision and broken walls.

Sacrifice is learning when to be still in the wind
when to reel in the anchor, leave old shores and set sail.

Satyagraha is a Sanskrit word of resistance
it starts with unfurled fists and soul force.

Solstice is when the sun is highest or lowest,
and so, our seasons change.

I say a Salah on the Sabbath because
only God knows His saints.

Surely, surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
anything else can stay far away.
