my being

my being my existence
in a world that is flawed
my business my acceptance
to a merciful god
my voice my face
my poetry my weight
my sickness my fate
my memories my treasury of the past
all those relations that did'nt last
my family above and below
my friends and my soul
my woman which woman
is she alive or dead
yes i have a being 
when i'm finished being alive
a metaphysical being
in a world unflawed
my heaven my acceptance 
from a merciful God
