Abdul Wahab


Static Earth


Turn back the hands of the clock
Pull them so much that they enter into an age
And fall upon a piece of land
Where people still think
That the sun moves around
And the earth is flat and static
Where people may be unscientific
Backward, awkward or primitive
But their society is free from evils
As they do not need powers of money or muscle
I prefer to live among them
As I hate those powers to spin my world.

    A realistic poem wishing to lead life in the past era where Human Relations are not affected by electronic mantra and money Tantra! The matter has walked in my heart! Awesome Work!

Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
