Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab

Where I Completely Lost!

Though I do not like
Words and alphabets

But I like to read books
So when I was once reading

‘’Some one is waiting for me’’
Surprisingly I was delighted too much

But it turned immediately
Out to be not true

As I was held the book
Up side down

Actually it was me who
Was waiting for some one

And I feared that the person
would never turned up

and very soon
And it became very true

Upon being very thirsty
At a distance I saw a pitcher

And thought
it would be full of water

like a thirsty crow
while I approached

I saw
to my bewilderment

the pitcher was kept
down side up

S—l –o—w—l—y
And I am sorry to tell

They all killed my faith
In me and in my fate

Even I do not believe in
Logic on this earth

nor I believe the date
on which I took birth

they are mere numbers
in between them

there are big gaps
long before where I completely lost

    You are not lost, but in a period of waiting, as you say for someone. Many people drinks, drugs which are all in a waiting period, but when you fill your mind with hope, hope in the best, but take what comes and when the unsurness comes, just say, that is not the truth, eventually you will get out of it.
    Cheer up and expect a better day tomorrow, in every tomorrow, but take what comes and deal with it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
