AN ENEMY WITHIN

We've got an enemy that guns can't fight.

We've got an enemy that respects no money.

We've got an enemy that fears no military architecture or its intelligence

We've got an enemy that knows no social class.

We've got an enemy that changes our perception, our ideology, our socialization and our civilization.

This enemy exposes our nothingness.

But the enemy is not a Northerner, an Easterner or a Southerner; it is the Inner man!

He has robbed us of the love, tolerance and unity we once had centuries ago.

To fight this enemy is to fight ourselves not by buying machineries or sophisticated weapons, but by using Mechanism to Forster Love, Tolerance and Unity on ourselves; 

Illiteracy, religious bigotry, Tribalism, Corruption, Regionalism, Nepotism, Diversity and the likes are some of the ills we have to fight against.

The enemy settles within as long as we look without. Let's look within so we can send him to his place: trashcan!

The enemy is not You or Them, it is Me and Us!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
