Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

Light engulfed the light


What kind of light we lighted!
Light engulfed the light!
Black conspiracy of dark house,
That’s why, allowed owls to dwell, right.

Why live like a cockroach?
In the tinpacked world
Who has made you culprit?
Where is your might?

Don’t sell your hope and dream,
Although, market is decorated.

Seen not the rising sun
Brightness blurred the sight

Why became the statue?
On the life road,
Feelings has been buried or theft,

Put your hand on the cheek,
And think;
What you were
And what you are.....

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
