Non-Existence

In this narrow stretch
of no-man’s land
in a colonized land,
I live as a victim
while opposites stand
with arms in hand
to fight their battle,
the battle of opposites.

Anger frowns at Peace;
Joy winks at Grief;
Pride mocks at Humility;
Hatred does hate Love;
Desire is hot with Disgust;
thus, an army of opposites
have colonized this land,
keeping me a victim
in this narrow stretch
of a no-man’s land.

None do I love;
None of these opposites,
for Love or Hatred,
they are opposites.
Colonizers!
That’s who they are,
competing
to possess this land,
and I am but a victim
in this no-man’s land.

Nor do I love you,
Detachment, but trust you.
Do possess this land
and help me
to evict them all,
you, me, and all,
and to make this land,
a no-man’s land.
