WHEN CHASING THE MOON

When you allow the devil
to ascend the throne
of your mind,
he galvanizes over your sky.

When you let the demon in you
afflict mortality,
You let difficulties arouse; and
your hope towards the moon
becomes a myth.

It is unwise of him; a future king
to exchange
his father’s ancestral throne
for a penny
with those men of suits,
when his people
are suffering from amnesias,
how will he govern them
when they’re healed?

When chasing the moon
Don’t stop in the house of stars.
When running after excellence
Don’t settle behind mediocrity.

Alas!….float your self
from the flat of the sphere,
Rescue your soul
from that sloppy jungle,
Rise yourself, from
the fall of the lead,
Save your future nation
from this wise omen.
