Treasure Island

Dr Kamran Haider Bukhari

(Nov 19,1978 / Pakistan)

To This World Of Dying Humanity


The starter was served awfully before than-
You arrived;
The end is way afar yet.
And you have already relinquished;
All your days of juvenile hopes,
And all your nights of wet dreams.

Strippers, Dancers and Hookers,
Crying,
While awake or asleep;
Money, Money and Money…
Professors, Doctors and Philosophers,
Whispering,
In the ears of their confused minds;
Money, Money and Money…
Priests, Pandits and Sheikhs,
Praying,
In the abodes of their delusional holiness;
Money, Money and Money…
Artists, Poets and Thinkers,
Talking,
To an imagery of their animated desires;
Money, Money and Money…
Revolutionists, Extremists and Politicians,
Shouting,
In the minds of the naive adolescence;
Money, Money and Money…

Hey,
Why are you saying so?
Are you out of your mind?
Are you not one of us?
Hey,
We got you;
You penniless filth,
You say things about Money;
When,
Can’t get it any more…
Before,
You were like us;
Crying, whispering, praying, talking and shouting for
Money, Money and Money…

Listen to me;
My brothers and sisters,
For I would not speak again.
I,
Who is one like you;
Is no different,
From your own flesh and blood.
Which runs through your veins,
And which you don’t even mind to eat;
When ravenous.
Lend me your ears;
My brothers and sisters,
For I would not speak again.
Do not misjudge me,
And do not deny me;
As I am one of you.
This world is a false metaphor;
Created millions of years back,
With the darkness of Light.
An examination venue,
Designed like a ball room;
Where men and women,
Come; make pairs, dance and leave.
But before leaving;
They are acknowledged with a testimony,
Of their orgasmic love;
In the form of the angelic divinity.

Men and Women of our mother earth;
Here creeps an illusive ambiguity-
If we all were angels once;
And if we were nothing,
But a part of eternal divinity-
Then,
Why we have become devils today?
Needs, Desires, Beliefs, Hatreds, and underneath all;
Our Ego…

I am neither a prophet nor a saint,
I am like you, just an ordinary man;
I know nothing,
Except the internal fact;
And that is what you fear to listen-
If you can kill your Ego,
For another man or woman;
If you can sacrifice your inner-self,
For the sake of the other soul;
You can salvage,
The Spirit Forfeited;
And you can retrieve,
The Paradise Lost;
On this planet of living misery,
And in this world of dying humanity.

    Oh this world of dying humanity
    Floating in a bloody sea of calamity,
    But we mortal prays: Oh sea of divinity
    Transform this into a sea of serenity.
    Good images Kamran
    You are really a spiritual man so you are so anguished by the existing disharmony

    Kamran,
    'For the sake of the other soul;
    You can salvage,
    The Spirit Forfeited;
    And you can retrieve,
    The Paradise Lost;
    On this planet of living misery,
    And in this world of dying humanity'

    I am spellbound--you have the power to express so beautifully--you are indeed great. Surely that 'That Paradise Lost' you will be able to.make 'Paradise Regained'. You have that power in you by way of knowledge and intuition. You seemed to be touched by that ray of God. You are erudite. Enlightenment is in you. Arise awake You THE SUN HAS RISEN..
    I loved this poem goes to my fav list
    A+ and 10+

    what a coincidence before reading your poem i was listening to Kalam of Bulle Shah sung by Abida Parveen....To be very honest with you Shah Sahib....its a marvellous and inspiring write with lots of messages and yes you are absolutely right about the thoughts of the people now a days, but what to do things are in not our hands any more or may be they are, but we are avoiding it deleberately...its a quite long write but truely i loved it 10+++ for this couragous write...thanks for shring

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
