Eternity and Recognition

POEMS: Eternity and Recognition

Two poems by Anel Hamersma

BY ANEL HAMERSMA

Eternity

Last night I gazed up at the stars.
They twinkled away in the distance
those histories
those relics of the past

and I thought:
I am just the same.
What you see in me
is never the present moment
but the ever-increasing indentations
that my yesterdays have
carved into my face.

Every second digs another
tiny line out of me
and some day all those lines together
will connect me back
into eternity.

 

Recognition

There is something in you
I recognize
from a long time ago.

It doesn’t have a face
or feet
and yet it feels just like that.

We join in the dark.

That is the way it has always been.
