I vow

Shaikha Khalifa is back with us with a brand new post, this time it’s a poem revolving around a promise she makes for herself and is titled “I vow”. We hope you enjoy it

Today I vow to give myself to beauty,

To drink excessively from every glass it has,

To never forget the taste it leaves on my mouth,

 ***

Today I marry my troubled soul to art,

To forever carry the heavy burden that is passion,

***

Today I devote my life to pleasing my senses,

To feel, to touch, to breath, to taste and to listen,

 ***

Today I dare walk the path of self-distraction,

To enjoy the corruption beauty is performing on my soul,

To relish in it,

To absorb every bit of it,

***

Today I vow to forever be an artist.

***
