Ka’abah

Written by: Jagang Sukma

Why square? I wondered
Drifting together in a stream of faith;
Broken promises, shattered ambitions, hopeful desperation and the misled
Like a river we flow
Revolving, spinning, orbiting
Here, at this very place
Here lies the direction for those who seek
But why square?
A myriad of people from various walks of life
Flocked in this once barren land
Like migratory birds they came, with a call to answer
A rhythm to complete
As did the one who built it
But why square?
Perhaps it’s the rigidity, or the flaw-seeking locals,
Or the bawling puppets who stick like mould to stone
Wonder if it’s justified to ask so many questions 
After all, it is not meant to complicate 
Repulsiveness surged in me
Now’s not the right time...
To commit is to surrender; bare and defenseless
My mind’s a web and heart infested

Perhaps 
It’s for those who spiral southwards
For in the square’s a circle of solace
