Fahim Sayed


Path


Dont want to walk
the traditional roads,
parallel pathways,
commercial tracks,
political highways.

I refuse to
labor social mammoths,
be part of the same breed,
breathe in corrupted heavens,
compromise on my deeds.

I am no slave to
elected government,
the corporal society,
self proclaimed kings,
social tranquility.

I want to mouth
futile laws,
the loaded corruption,
constitutional blemish,
the racial favoritism.

I dislike
regional prejudice,
moneyed protection,
patriotic theater,
unhealthy tradition.

Where to go,
which direction,
where is it,
path to resurrection.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
