Running ,Running to the light
Hoping that this is my escape
Looking around making sure the darkness is left behind
Trying to get out
I can see the light getting closer and closer
Shadows slowly disappearing
Roses are coming alive
Stars are shining
Seasons are changing
Sun is shining
The pain is not there
I'm smiling
I made it to the light
Only to be woken up stuck in the same hell I been in for years

“SEARCHING FOR DAD
March 1979
by U Sam Oeur
for Lorraine Ciancio
.
When I left, dad sat on his bed,
wanting to go through his shakes in private.
With no food or water, dad lived on Buddha
while his body became covered with sores.
.
He refused to leave. He wanted to meditate.
Pol Pot separated me from my Teacher.
When I return, I find he is gone.
Dad, what miseries did you suffer?
.
In '75, it was ashrams everywhere.
Old men and women who were fed up
with reincarnating into this life of pitfalls
sought ways to reach Nirvana.
.
Now, in '79, I see only aquatic bushes.
I break into a cold sweat. I get dizzy;
No matter what the ideology du jour,
there is always the same lament.
.
Oh trees in whose roots the fish spawn,
in the dry season of '75, my dad was still here.
He was alive under the sanctuary of worship.
Now in what grave does his skeleton lie?
.
He was a builder, followed the precepts, gave alms.
He built temples, chateaux, palaces, stupas.
Yet Pol Pot killed him.
Annihilated his genius without regret.
.
O grasses, your grandson begs you-
if the grandfather grasses know
the whereabouts of my father's grave,
I shall shave my head in thanks.
.
O grass of thickets, grass
of sticking burrs, where is
the skeleton concealed?
Tell-and I shall ask no more of you.
.
.
.
The horizon is like the hem of a mosquito net, pelican feet
like duck feet. We've been living in misery
because of our king, eclipsed because ladies adore diamonds,
our forest turned to deserts out of ignorance.
.
Oh, God! Why Cambodia?”
(Translated from Khmer by Ken McCullough)
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
On this #cambodianremembranceday, poet U Sam Oeur's ‘Searching For Dad’ from his 1998 book, "Sacred Vows" reminds us of the horrors suffered by a nation. His work details the survival and aftermath of the Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1979, serving as a recollection his country's gravid national history and a breaking from traditional Khmer poetry through the interspersing of of folklore, mythology and religion.

Feeling numb. Is that possible? Feeling paralyzed but knowing you still exist through the constant ticking of the clock.

I wish I could wind us like a clock and save the pain of heading down a path that we've unintentionally ended up on. Let's take one step closer, I want us to remember. Let's not lose sight; let's keep these slow-beating hearts alive. Let's dissolve into each other, eliminate the sense of fading and perpetual longing for a loving, honest embrace we know we already have. Let's be something we continue to create, not something that is fabricated. Something we'll keep planting and growing in our hearts, rooted so deeply, it can't be pulled apart.

We'll do something – anything – to hold on, because we can't fathom anything worse than being forgotten, than not being intertwined as one. We'll get back to making it somewhere. Let's grind this venomous path to dust between the interlocking of our fingers, and start over again. Back to where we know was good. Down the road we never wanted to turn back from. Where we know everything is still worth it, still remains.

We'll be fragile, still partially broken and touching each other's reflections as the sun makes way for our shadows – until we fall back into something tangible again. And we'll know through it all that this isn't it. That we were always enough, and always will be.

Never judge a book by its cover , tag the beautiful people in your life 🎨🎨

What would the world be like if we each took responsibility for our own happiness? Our own righteousness, sovereignty and actions? A world where we don’t blame others for our misfortunes. A world where we don’t tell others to be different to fill our immediate needs. Where we embrace others as they are and gently help each other in becoming our highest self in a noninvasive way.
What would the world be like if we seized fire on our demands of others, our expectations, frustrations and critics and instead lifted others up... empowered them rather than disempowered.
What would the world be like if we took stock on our own downfalls and didn’t project them on to others.
You and only you are responsible for your own happiness - to turn on your inner light.
It is our birth right to be joyous, happy and free. We all owe that to ourselves. So get out of your own way, get out of other people’s way and use your emotive ability as humans to inspire and encourage.
What is ever achieved by tearing each other apart?
