An Apology: To All My Readers


I apologize to all my readers-
The very young as well
As the elderly ones-
In the whole world: in India,
Pakistan, Britain, Australia,
Syria, Tunisia, Canada,
And The USA,
For not replying
AS FAST AS
I should to thy e mails,
Ideas or comments,
Though happily live I
By thy positive remarks,
Yet the big amount is
Just too much to handle.

And I am weaker than before,
Especially after passing through
Chemo therapy around
Six years ago.
Thanks to God or Allah,
The Creator of the world
Butterflies and Man,
He saved me from the disease;
It was in an early stage.

And the responsibility
Of commenting on thy
Writings is really huge;
To say to someone ‘thy
Writing is good or bad’
And to specify ‘why’,
Is not a simple thing;
As an x university lecturer
I feel the burden of the duty,
And I just can’t take it lightly.

Beside all of this I
Support and care for
Myself and my twenty
Five cats all alone-
Isolation is chosen
By my mind and will-
And the little energy
Left for me after sunset
Or rise,
Is barely enough to write
Or post my poesy.
