SAINT LIEM’S STATUE (To Rodio Batayen)

by Demogargon Saatbarmald

Almost I lost my hope and dreams

And attempted to commit suicide.

All I wanted is to end my tragic life

Because of these trenching memories.

The world now hates me;

They all blamed me!

I am very sorry, but they didn’t listen to me!

Instead they threw me in a dark, void

Place where no one living person beside me—

Only this lifeless, smiling statue of Saint Liem.


I envied Saint Liem because he’s smiling

Despite of terrible miseries I felt.

He’s still standing up high

Even if the stars already faded in the skies.

He can’t see anything except this void darkness

Yet this statue, the most venerated statue

Remains so strong

While I am in grieve infliction.


I know he’s only a statue, a lifeless piece

Yet I envied this statue because he can’t

Feel my sorrows…

The sentiments of my broken heart.


Now I’m all alone, sitting behind

These decaying lockers while gazing the

Brackish water at the Colegio’s pond.

I cried sorrowfully, loosing my star of hope

Yet this numb Saint Liem’s statue

Continuously insulting me—

Now laughing while staring at the

Dark, polluted skies.
