Mubeen Sadhika


Two ships apart


The lonely saga
of this journey
upheaved in troubled
waters and seldom
silent in deep sea
very many hurricanes
crossed without
stopping the sail.

The other voyage
full of aspirants
to partner the
solitary queen sang
the war song
dreaming up to
touch the ferry
without fail.

Racing each other
the warriors
fiercely battled
neglecting the
ravages of time
brushing aside
until the loner
wrecked in hail.

    Mubeen,

    I loved the passion of this poem, it is beautiful...yet I am reminded of something once told to me many years ago, 'Things that hurt, instruct...'
