A Poem Dedicated To My Murderer

Rating: 4.9

If you strike a dagger in my chest
Do ponder
Air has no body.

Air is flow
Of running seas of life
It's a long story
Which has no beginning
And no end.

If you strike a dagger in my chest
Do ponder
Air is immortal
Air is mother's pat
Air is sound of a lullaby
Air is a prayer
Out of the mouth of babes!

(1983, Translated by Samina Amjad)

its prana that gives life to the body, we are because we breathe. its a great philosophical write. a title that immediately catches attention. Air has no body, air is flow. so is life... last lines are so beautiful. mamta

wonderful idea to ponder on, so, allow me to hit you back; 'Air' is the spirit, the 'dagger' cannot destroy it but Words can actually 'strike a dagger in my chest'

very nice. I hope air is immortal, but somehow I doubt this to be the case. I give you air's lifespan might seem immortal compared to a human life. In the end I am of the beleive that the sun is going to kill everything on this Earth; by the sun balloning into a red giant star out to Mars. If we, and I mean the human race cannot get along for a comman good we will die as if we never were! ! ! thanks my friend
