Abdul Wahab


Whatever you have got
With less

or hard effort
Hold them close tight

to your chest
as they are your only own

and welcome
satisfaction to dwell upon

and let your breast
be wide with indomitable pride

and never allow them
to drown

never allow them
to fade away

like a piece of cloth
like that of your shirt

when you stand and see helplessly
and all gliters go

and never allow
any idea too

to sneak into
to provoke you to think

that whatever you have got
were merely a fluke

actually it is a con
works like a freak

makes your mind

make you think
that whatever

you have not hooked
was a bigger fish

created a bigger ripple
sing so sweet

at distance
rise high

under their golden wings
carry rays

and claimed the sun
as it is not your encaged bird

lay an careful ear
and listen to wind

it tells you
that it is your illusion

which does not like you
to settle

and does not like you
to feast upon

let your achievement
to grow

as every thing
has its own meaning

inside it a silver line
a sky

to spread
a ground to go deep

nourish it
as you nourish a sapling.
