My Sister & Skin & I am #OctPoWriMo day 26, 27, 28

Posting three poem today compensating the previous days. Of day 26, day 27, day 28 here. Spare me, yet again.

DAY 26: My Sister

For all that she's been
Sister three years elder to me
Fighting the storm
sailing over sees
Selfless she's been 
Does not believe in God
All seasons she blooms
A social worker, a feminist
Bitter she may be
for thats how the truth is
the soldier
the messenger
the north star
For all that she's been 








DAY 27: Skin

Skin
Your skin
Soft its been
Sometimes so thin
What all you hide within
War, if, is your skin
I'd let you win
Beyond zinn
Skin






Day 28: I am.... an introspector

Life goes as it goes
directionless, at times
But a cousin sister taught me
how to focus on energies within

I ask questions
Where are we in life, right now? 
not to you
To myself, often
Of what I am doing
Of what I wish to do
What is happiness, as I call it
What is bliss, do I know of it?

Then I met another person
who does the same like me
well, at a better level instead
He asks questions
and finds answers too
He seeks
He discovers

I hope someday I can
Direct all energies 
and transcend to the universe
in a better way
For I introspect
In search of that light

    I think this is the finest of aspirations!
