Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

A Road

Life is a simple road
From birth to death
With hundred bends
On each of it
Stands a beautiful fairy
To tell you the secrets
To reach from one to another
Until there is no road

At the end of it
You meet a boat man
To cross you over
To a nether land
Totally mysterious
And unknown
