Best M. Hussain Effendi Poems

+ Fav Poet


Often bullied, more often tried
In darkest hours, never cried
Endless encounters with hope died
On steepest odds, yet never shied

I welcome abuse, give it your best
Hunt like a dog, squish like a pest
All this while, I take my rest
Until forebearance comes to test

For then, you must answer for your screwing
Ponder upon all of your doing
Ignorance is bliss, so is your unknowing
Where I shall take you, no one loves going

Do not take me for where I lie
For my colours deceive the brightest sky
Your pestering shall render your end nigh
(Be warned) There is more to me than meets the eye

    Hi Hussain, so nice to hear from you and I'm ecstatic you are getting "in the mood" again! It will be wonderful to read something new from you but your old ones are still nice to read too. Wonder how you are and hope life is treating you well. I bought an electric bike and am having a ball on it! Love, Lizzie

    Oh my god, I didn't mean all that I did ok! I didn't even know it'd hurt you that badly, honest. I'm so sorry for offending you. This brilliantly rhymed poem scared the living daylights outta me man. How do you plan on avenging my ridicule? Please spare me... Pretty please (whimpers) (sobs). Regards and Profuse Apologies, Crabbe The Bully

    That last line is more than true for I find you a fascinating guy - and love your rhyming. Find some inspiration dear friend. Need to read your lovely creed! :)

    Hussain: I'm sure glad I'm not the girl on the receiving end of this one (LOL) but very nicely penned! And I hope your frustrations are more imaginative than real but sometimes poetry can be a wonderful outlet for those "penned up" emotions that instead of releasing as anger we poets release in more creative ways. In sum, poetry is our release and our refuge. Anyway, GREAT poem and thanks 4 commenting on my poetry as well. You're far too kind with the compliments:)
