Abdul Wahab


1991


Told me a friend in 1991
Who pass examination of highest level
They must have got a well thought plan
And preparation from their childhood
Which I missed
And in that sort I had none


I thought I was lost
Without having anything substantial
But I had enough time ahead
Only I needed financial assistance.

But at home
We had hawks who had been doing nothing
And waiting like vulture
To see me stop my dream run
So that they might divide parents’ wealth
And eat up those like a dead cow.

This their secret wish
Killed me
I was dead before I died
And without doing anything against me
My relatives become my enemy.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
