Abdul Wahab

The world of my life

I am torn into two
Move s step forward to accept what life is
Take two steps backward not to accept
What life has given to me.

I bleed into two horns
To believe that war is another means of peace
Or reject peace to stop war
As war has terrorised me

The world of my life is cut into two
North- south, east -west
I can not show you it openly
As the weaker half resorts to war secretly.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
