Bury Me In My Home - Poem by Usman Hanif

Let the soul creep in my shadow
Wake me up when you’re gray
Eat my meal, throw the ladle
Shine the sun, cast them away

Dig the hole in the ground
Bury me in my home

Break the bells, call no funeral
Don’t let them say the prayer
Say me bye, like my humor
Never become them, be my heir

You’d lose the foes you found
Bury me in my home

Save yourself with the sword
Avoid the burden of the shield
Fight them in the name of Lord
Follow the way, you can’t see

Dig the grave, make no sound
Bury me in my home

Face the demise, lose the war
Hug it with your pain
Keep your soul, not lose it far
Feel the surge of dying again

Do the job, you are bound to
Bury me in my home...
The zone that I own

Bury me in my home...
Bury me in my home...
