Fourth Collection-In Search of Destiny :: Lost is the fourth collection from Aladdin Ayesh. In this collection, Aladdin returns to his lyrical style seen in his first collection Blue Voice with solid verses that reflect his poetic experiences over the last three years. His previous experimentation with form and meter comes to maturity in this collection.

On the light side of the Fourth Collection, we Meet Norline. The same style is used in When Jen Met Ben and Mary . Mary. These poems are humorist reflections on daily life interactions that can happen to anyone. Some, like the ending lines of Mary . Mary, injects a general philosophical thought lightly delivered. This humor of the Fourth Collection, is balanced by romantic poems such as My Little Happiness, I Miss You and Somewhere Inside. These are effectively song lyrics serving a moment of deep feeling. Other human experiences are also reflected in the Fourth Collection such as newly born babies of Aladdin's friends. A Year Old celebrates the first birthday of one whilst New Be celebrates the birth of another. Fourth Collection has also philosophically deeper reflective poems such as In a Dreamer's Skull and Street Girl and A File in the Drawer. Even though they are serious poems, Aladdin still maintained a lyrical approach with fluid form in the majority of them.

Fourth Collection ends with a poem entitled Age of Romance, which is a longing poem to the simple form of romantic innocent love. In some ways, it summarizes this poetic journey.
