Best Poem of Famida Basheer

Aatmaa

aatmaa he said
your soul
it must awaken
it sleeps the sleep of the untried

I unhitch my sari
lift its end over
to cover my head

there must be some truth
in what he says
he is the guru

I the creature
of questions
without answers

I bow low in reverence
and know
that only my humility
is the answer
to a question I never asked...
