The Breath – A Poem From “Heart Dancing, Feet in Lead”

Majid Ali, M.D.

Fears and suspicions,

Why so seductive?

Anger and rage,

Why so addictive?

Misery, why so easy?

Happiness, why so hard?

Suffering, why so ready?

Love, why on guard?

Men crazed and craven,

What determines their fate?

Pathology of control,

Power of hate.

Bitten and scorned

Who would care?

Deep healing,

Why so rare?

Conniving, conspiring,

Bring the wrath,

Sensing, conversing,

Delineate the path.

The breath belongs

To breathing,

As breeze to air,

And the spirit

To soul, generous and fair.

Majid Ali, M.D.
