Mouth of the Beast

Love poem suzy kassem



The sea was angry,
Smashing anything that came its
Way as it crashed onto the shore.
And my thoughts were thrashing,
Because I didn’t know if I really loved him,
Or if he truly loved me,
And if our union was worth the time anymore.
So I told him to jump into the dangerous waters
To prove his love for me.
And without counting to three,
He tore off his pants and peeled off his sleeves,
Then ran into the ferocious sea –
Where the waves swallowed him and spit him out
They bashed him a hundred times,
And forced him underneath to swallow the salt.
He struggled to get out.
Gasping for air, he began to shout out his love for me,
And that’s when I knew it was he who meant nothing to me –
For had my heart truly loved him,
It would have never sent him running straight
Into the mouth of a beast.

The Mother as Goddess

kingdom of the womb



From her thighs, she gives you life
And how you treat she who gives you life
Shows how much you value the life given to you by the Creator.
And from seed to dust
There is ONE soul above all others –
That you must always show patience, respect, and trust
And this woman is your mother.
And when your soul departs your body
And your deeds are weighed against the feather
There is only one soul who can save yours
And this woman is your mother.
And when the heart of the universe
Asks her hair and mind,
Whether you were gentle and kind to her
Her heart will be forced to remain silent
And her hair will speak freely as a separate entity,
Very much like the seaweed in the sea –
It will reveal all that it has heard and seen.

This woman whose heart has seen yours,
First before anybody else in the world,
And whose womb had opened the door
For your eyes to experience light and more –
Is your very own MOTHER.
So, no matter whether your mother has been cruel,
Manipulative, abusive, mentally sick, or simply childish
How you treat her is the ultimate test.
If she misguides you, forgive her and show her the right way
With simple wisdom, gentleness, and kindness.
And always remember,
That the queen in the Creator’s kingdom,
Who sits on the throne of all existence,
Is exactly the same as in yours.
And her name is,

A Heart of Lapis

Suzy Kassem poetry


The most beautiful stones adorn my neck
Like an Ancient Egyptian collar.
Two glistening balls of onyx sit on top,
Followed by a double stretch of coral.
At the center is a lapis heart,
Deeper in color than the Red Sea waters.
And I am so grateful for this heavenly gift;
This precious necklace is
My daughter.

The Three Bees

The three bees - Suzy Kassem poetry


A young boy once asked
A wealthy beekeeper:
“What is the secret of
Your success?”
The beekeeper simply smiled
And replied:

“To be successful,
One has to be one of three bees:
The queen bee,
The hardest working bee,
Or the bee that does not fit in.
One success is inherited,
And the next one is earned.
While the last one is
And happens on its own

“And which bee are you?”
Asked the boy.
The beekeeper then wiped
The sweat from his head
And said:
“The last may seem the riskiest,
But the glory of achievement
Is the most rewarding.
Freedom always comes at a high cost,
But only when you are
Your own boss,
Can you truly
Afford it.”
