Confessions of a College Student

IMG_1013.JPG

Paint the vivid picture,
Of a college student struggling
Working and studying
Partying Friday night with no money
But fuck it, you only live once.
Once is over you are in debt.

Asking for God,
Looking for miracles
In the sickle sky night
With the fickle perception
Of a young college man.

Trying to get it together,
Trying to make his wrongs, right
Trying to find love and know more
About God.

Walking unknown hills
Trying to stay at the top,
Setting your own boundaries
Trying to leave a mark
You’ve already made in your mind,
But have not done anything about.

My dad said dreams come true
As long as you work hard
Stay sanctified and focus on your goals.

Went drinking and partying
Got kicked out of school,
I thought I knew it all
To come to know that nothing I know.

Indulgence 

  
Paint my sins in surrealism

Appeal to my senses,

In all my pleasures,

Taking not giving.

Desires take over,
Over the flesh of your son. 

Sweet ambition,
Sweet desire,

I am lost in these mountains.

Your lips, they love me

Then they spit at me. 

Forbidden  fruit,
I take more than what you offer,

And then lose it all,

Carried away by my passions.

I am lost in my own desires,
Get me out of here,

Indulgence. 

Lebanese Girl

Your geen eyes and your brown skin
Tell the story of a country full of war,
Full of pain and revolution.
But in your eyes
I can also admire the beauty
And the story that your eyes tell me.
You are free like the wind
And your lips and your skin are beautiful
Like the port of Beirut,
Full of innovation and the breeze from the sea
That makes me feel at ease.
Like jade,
Your eyes shine like jade
That reveals
The uniqueness and beauty
Of your beautiful country,

Lebanon.
