An Introduction - Poem by Ahatisham Alam

I don't wish to introduce myself,
Because reality stirrs my soul.
I am like one,
Who has lost his goal.

Where to go what to do,
Are not subject concern with me.
There is darkness all around,
Where ever in this world I see.

Realise me as a lamenting soul,
Adversity has already destined my goal.
Vanity recalls me to rise,
I'll survive if dies..............

    Outstanding philosophical expression. Nicely articulated and sweetly rhymed non-introduction.
    Because reality stirrs my soul.
    I am like one.... Who has lost his goal.... as a lamenting soul

    Your lyrical submission of a feeling all of us without exception feel is only too well understood by arya here. This is exactly a feeling that is called compassion and empathy in the eyes of a poet. God be with you........arya. (Report)Reply
