Demarcation - Poem by nasrullah baki
As we are brothers
We were fed together
We dreamt equally
Worked, made things with sand
Cherished water from rain together
Crossed a long journey.
In the midst of sorrow and happiness
When a new energy was applied
There has been long, tiresome and
Weird and insurmountable demarcation created.
The is hate while there was love,
There is antagonism
Between us. between two brothers
Between two souls.
We are separated not from mind
But from soil.
We, two brothers
Went to university walking
Side by side, hand in hand
Discussed poems, politics
We shared everything even breath.
We are desiccated and dissipated
For years, light years,
But I believe we miss each other
We cry when time is isolated
We feel and love each other from core
Where only blood speaks.
