Abdul Wahab


young heart of the old frame Poem by Abdul Wahab


Oh, old man and women of the world
Forget your age; you have just lived more days
Experienced more springs, nothing else
You may have a few junk nuts at your joints
But nothing happened to your heart
It remains as fresh as of nineteen years
Shun the notion that you are old
Be cherubic as you were used to be
When you were young
Pull up your face a little bit, get up
And go to the market, buy a red hat
A box of chocolate and a rose, red
I have bought a few pairs of sandals
High heeled with yellow laces
And few gauges of ribbons
In all bright colours including turquoise and purple
To send via courier to my new friend
But people say I am spoiled
Because of the picture you set
Come on,
Let us change the perception
Of the world about us, old.
