An Intent - Poem by Shahida Latif
Oh! God, bless me and all,
The world is quite changed into,
The flaming thorny wilderness.
My eyes can see no more,
These false puppet shows;
And rising all around the fire,
Of jealousy and mincing hate.
All men and women of the world,
Move confounded in extra-haste,
Obsessed by their own interests;
Heedless towards the needy fellows.
Crying to be rescued out of
The marshes and mud of troubles;
Splintered, Sunk knee deep.
The cries melt my heart,
That languishes in warm drops,
Weeps and moans in silence;
And emerges a prayer from
The deep unexplored recesses,
Of the palpitating organ;
And whispers to me its intent,
“Oh! God, Bless me and all,
As I intend to change, the world,
The flaming thorny wilderness,
Into flowery, fragrant zone of Eden.
