The Road I Take - Poem by Abdul Wahab

The road
Rough and tough
I take
Leads me but
Treads uncertainly
Moves through
Uninformed
Pitfalls
Runs zigzag
Invisible the uneven path
But I get delight
When I break a clod
In the dense fog
I get more pleasure
When I remove a thorn
At every challenge
I gather more strength
Twist and turn
Never return me
Empty hand
More hopes
Of hidden treasures
I see
In the dark cracks and holes
I thrill
With the thought
That I will discover
The mysterious far end
Non transparent
Now under the cover of thick cloud

    The ultimate winner is the 'you' in you taking this road. We begin to retrace our lost food steps in the deserts of human dislocations and withering values. Your road is to be a clearer one with many to follow you dear poet. (Report) Reply
