Umar's Poetry

Umar Bin Hassan is a poet. His writings are a rare glimpse at where the world is going, and where it has been. Below is a sample of more to come. . .


excerpt from the Poetry International Festival Rotterdam

Abstract in nature, yet so very important to it.
He is the warning sign, the innervision to peace or self-destruction.
Calmly and confidently in eyes wide open he watches and protects the inner being of innocence and the beauty of nature inspires him to love and give.
He is not ugly!
And the prince is not a prince.
But he can be crazy like a poet clinging to the words of Gods and Demons and the drama of your sneers and snickers of him.
This is love for all of you stuck in boredom and the intense madness of our darkside.
In the danger of the Forest he does not seperate his emotions.
He struggles mightily to control his mind is open to suggestions if you really want to be human.
Lean on me, he expresses sincerely, lean on me.
The water has stopped breathing.
The air is bleeding confusion.
The Earth is beginning to swallow up the young.
The threats of mass murder and extinction are all around him.
But yet, he sits there as constant as ever, on that log, on that water, in that Forest, hoping, dreaming, and manifesting the reality that humility is a blessing and EVIL... cannot win!
