Shahzia Batool (Pakistan)
My Scattered Thoughts iv
The journey of life
is spanning o'er centuries
even then everyman has to submit himself
to his final end...
carrying the loads
of unfulfilled aspirations,
where to go leaving your altar...
wishing to receive the happy tidings
of the one reaching home safely
before the sun lying down
into the grave of evening...
Time is but a flowing stream,
never stopping anywhere, but a moment will come
when it will be falling into the ocean
of timeless eternity...
How cute the world of dreams are,
unless you open your eyes; a humble supplication
don't stay attached to me, for i don't wish to see you
in regrets, for carrying the gifts of hopes in hands
i'll be back to my home...
i wish to do all left undone by the rest...

is anything impossible in the world?
