You cant keep running from the past
Nor running after it
Abandon it where it belongs
The past where no one sees it

Quatrain By Maria Yousuf
Summer flowers worn and faded
Fake and overrated
Forgotten and vanished

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
A moment, a fabric
Torn out of aged summers
And old promises made

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

A single word of appreciation goes a long way
It can be the commencement
For a new start

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

I want to go the whole way
See it to the end which is the top
You've invested hope in me, shown me not all is lost

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
My radar beeps as you approach
Time to go
Its you, me and lots of doors to unlock

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
My Gallery exhibits how you've aided me
Paintings of read and black of suffering and fright
White and gray of leaving me cold without a light

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

You are a phoenix, reborn from your own ashes
Ashes of your burnt agony and pain
Ashes of your stranded soul, bruised and stained

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

The top is always abandoned to be taken
Left for you to set ladders of limits to
Vacant for occupation, empty for you

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Had the world been in black and white
It'd be a canvas empty of light
A view with bleak vows and limited sight

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
You can pretend to turn your back on me
But I'll know its because you care
You teach me lessons I've never learnt before

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Light that lantern
Reflect what guides
Be the mirror of an image thats right

Let this be my first step to success
Be my first path to my destination
First challenge that I'd conquer
First triumph that I'd cheer
Let this be it

Maria Yousuf
It is a picture, surreal and perfect
Created in the mist of your dreams
Waved into life by a magical hand
Its not out of reach
That's what you must understand

Maria Yousuf
Its not the many faces you see
Its one with many colors
You are capable of everything
Its your choice what to reveal and what not to
Whom to show and whom not to...

My heart wrenched hearing the words you said
I spun around in the rain soaked and stained
I watched you walk away, turn your back on me
With tears I knew I couldn't see

Maria Yousuf
Don't strand me in the storm,
Walk away from the promises you made
Don't walk away from who you were,
Strand me among lightning, thunder and rain

Maria Yousuf

.:Soaring Eagle:.

You can't be ugly with a heart like that
Can't be insignificant with love like that
Can't be broken with strength like that

Hold on to that beauty
Don't let fright break you
Don't let words bring you down

Pull through and show how you soar
Hold on and be the headstrong person you are
Break the surface that keeps you down

I know your spirit
Its time you show the world who you are
Let go, pull through and soar the skies

Its yours to explore
Yours to reach out to
And yours to conquer

Be the Soaring Eagle you are...

You can touch my soul's tune
Strum on a harp's strings
And whisper into a flute

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
I can also walk away and not care
But the humanity in me refrains me
From being so oblivious to other's need

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

Let me paint your life
With colors I hold
Show you secrets whispered and told

Haiku By Maria Yousuf

There will always be a boulder blocking your path
If you try to remove it
You will learn that its nothing more than rubble

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
Are you here to laugh at me?
Was I your joke?
The jokes on you
Because I wasn't fooled

Its better written than spoken
Better read than told
Emotional shades and hues remain hidden

Haiku By Maria Yousuf
