Kneeling in Stages. ~ Yahia Lababidi {Poem}

Twenty years ago, a mighty spirit

whispered to me and rearranged my days

Drink, it said, of solitude, taste of silence;

I did as told and it left me a writer


Now, it’s back again with grander designs

to rewrite my soul or transform my being

Renounce, it insists, both word and world games

and I have no choice but to submit and bow.
