Am I Lazy? - Poem by Gulam Abbas Hashmi

When the need provokes;
the body does not act.
I on the counterpart,
rest in my shell.
A long day awaits me;
the work is still,
beholding me on the stage.
The responsibility calls
am I lazy or dull?
The enquiry cries,
and helplessness strikes
the conscious sleeps.
The dignified me;
then traces, the path-
to find a corner,
and discovers a logic
