Being A Poet

The one,
who makes me die
in sweet way...
is the face of my soul

The one,
who keeps me alive
in hard way
is my own dream girl.

    the one who makes me smile
    is a poet with swords and a pen...

    the one who makes me cry
    when this poet will not write
    and will not be my hero anymore...grace

    A TRIBUTE TO YOU AFZAL SHAUQ!

    “A Dream or True Reality”? , Dreams are mirrors to show the shadows of our life as you dreamt in your dream the situation nearer to reality. And I believe too that it's not a dream but fact that humans are becoming evil, greedy of having great physical power same as animals... this is really a great writing... and heart felt one.

    “Children of Adam”, Fact… and I like these lines

    ”Languange is no barrier
    to understanding”

    yes, we can see, hear and feel what people are desiring to convey; the love and peace.

    “Almighty Allah”, Allah is great! He deserves our praise. Wonderful way of giving praise to Allah shows that never neglect reality and are faithful to your nature too. Allah / God is the only supreme and decide for us. We are nothing if help of God in not in support. God Bless you Afzal Shauq!

    Your poems are too short but full of intense emotions, well crafted and mostly love routed with deep concerns and touchy style. I have nothing to say more but dedicate my poem to you to support your dreamy thoughts… my honor to present it to you….

    She’s Like A River

    As I gaze
    in every angle
    I cannot resist.
    The warm appearance
    caught my attention.
    The silent flow
    it seems alluring,
    calm yet so deep.

    (6th May 2008 / Jazlle / UAE)

    Let me say again….
    Peace be with you!
    Let the blessings of God,
    flow in your life,
    like a springs of living water,
    or rivers that never run dry.
    God cares for you today, tomorrow and forever.

    May you and your family be with God always and be blessed.

    best regards,
    joan
