Isam Hussain Poems
The Eyes Of Horus
Once, the eyes of Horus
shone with equal brilliance,
sun and moon
played hide and seek
like two lovers in dalliance.
Then jealousy raised its head,
Seth raised his hand
against his brother, Osiris.
Lying in wait,
Seth bends his bow,
fires a vengeful arrow,
misses King Osiris,
strikes the eye of Horus,
wounding it, dimming its light.
Now the moon hides in darkness
while the sun boasts of its brightness.
The moon grows daily
more jealous and angry;
its full face burns with fury,
but can’t regain its past glory. ...
Good Friday Again
The prophet Isaiah spoke of this day,
He foretold of pain, sorrow and shame.
The world would never again be the same,
For those who had lost their way.
Death is not the end of living,
it's a gateway to a new beginning,
all that's needed is an Easter Morning.
