Anarchy - Poem by Shahzia Batool

I want to make it quite clear.....
my heart is not a thoroughfare.
i long for never-never land
for honest people, nice and fair.

no joys i find in shallow world
im fed up of this love-sick air.
wipe out these tears and hold the grief
i don't have too much time to share.

but darkness can't be a horrid thing
sun shines through this mist of despair.
friends oft misinterpret my love
they judge me but by surface layer.

so time is up, so words are spent,
so i intend to go, ....but where?

    Sun shines through this mist of hope...... When we are able to behold a silver lining amid dark clouds, we can be sure that not all is lost! When hope springs from despair, life remains never a burden, but one of sweet anticipation! An enjoyable read! (Report) Reply

    You didnot dishearten my expectation when I sat down to read your poem. Incredibly well furnished and when it is done with so few lines its certain that it came from a genius.
    Thanks. (Report) Reply
