Prague is for the Intellectuals

I wrote a poem
Dedicated to the old and new versions of me.
For I was young, headstrong and wild.
A bit more composed and sagacious now.
I got friends, made a few foes.
Witnessed humanity at its high and low.
Too belligerent to made peace with the world.
Wouldn't change a thing though.





I traveled to Prague,
where intellectuals and artists congregate.
Finding peace in chaos and solidarity.
Collecting knowledge in castles ruins and on St. Charles Bridge.
Spring scene filled with Kafka's melancholia and Mucha's elegance.
The ancient spirits they said: sic transit gloria mundi,
Yet I don't see that happening here in Czechia.

The World is Your Enemy


Sometimes it feels as if the world is your worst enemy,
Whatever you do, it is against you,
dragging you through hell with self-doubts and insecurity.
The devil thrives off of your fear and sadness.
It taunts you like a school bully,
Mercurial like a toxic lover,
Playing hard-to-get and all these mind games.
Feeding on trepidations, wanting power and control.
It is the oldest trick in the world, really,
yet, not a day less effective and convincing.





I have learned to ignore and mastered the art of nonchalance.
For we all have fallen for the trap one too many times.
However dissonant and tumultuous of a path you're on,
Do not forget to listen to yourself, darling.
Live your truth and yours only.
Tune out the noise in this world at intervals,
have faith and confidence in no one but yourself.
Choose to navigate through life on your own accord,
free yourself from false realities, then you shall know the ethereal clarity.

You've got the finesse.
