Free from anxiety

When temptation comes
Smoothness stops
A prison is formed
Anxious and bored
Around the wheel
An obstacle feel
There is an angle
Psychic illness bangle
Of stressful thoughts
In your accounts
Stop all your shouts
Temptation now
Just let it go
Climb step by step
On your wheel life trip
Keep the circle round
To move around
On your way you will find
All that suits your mind
If you deserve it
No others fit
To grab and enjoy
Your precious toy
Life is a wit
Journey cannot be quit
Committing suicide
You cannot hide
From the spirit world
Back to life you are over fold
Stop negative view
Find it the clew
Same as the water rotation
Fog, steam, evaporation
Then back to the river
Flowing forever
There is no extreme
In a balanced theme
Control your focus
On a perfect balance
Simply climb your life wheel
In a harmonious style
It is your own path
Good choice clean breath
Try and take pleasure in
Self-determination win
Free from anxiety
For a prosperous society

An original poem in English by Nada Amine Awar

Nada Amine Awar's picture

I am a female poet, and a writer in Arabic and English. I am also an independent environmental awareness specialist and activist since 1992 when I assisted Dr. Mohammad Khaowli who was the chairman of Geology department in the American University of Beirut to collect signatures for the petition that was submitted to the UN so that the first UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) could be held between 3 June and 14 June 1992 in Rio.., Fourth of January, 1957 I was born in Quarnayel, Lebanon. Being an only daughter among three sons, gave my whole life an aromatic taste., I got a master degree in political science from the American University of Beirut. Mahatma Gandhi is the only politician I follow and respect. Gamal Abd Nasir is the only Arab leader I admire., Rabindranath Tagore is my spiritual master. His poetry, writings, music, and universal thought is a real fountain for my spiritual uplifting., Chief Seattle’s “Message To the Modern World” broadened my views and deepened my interrelationships with Mother Nature and the GREAT SPIRIT., John Lennon is my daily friend. I recognize his song “Imagine” as my national anthem., I am a fan of Yoko Ono; I appreciate what she gave to the “whole world” through her love to John., I believe that the cosmic law is the only law that any creature must follow in order to understand the simple truth of life and death: that is another form of existence.
