Destination Of Uncertainty - Poem by Asif Baloch

Once happy
In lifestyle and
Living ways
No suffering, no sorrows
Ever came their way
Hurled like cattle
In cages
Tired and terrified
Of unwanted war
Walking towards the
Destination of
Uncertainty

No hunger
No poverty
Ever knock their doors
Life was pleasant
Fulfilled every
Desires known
Many mouths to eat
But not enough
Remain loaf
Walking towards the
Destination of
Uncertainty

Ah! Asif
I Feel the pain
Of snatching away
From mothers womb
Many left behind
On journey for
Better life
Children gone
Missing
Rose petals floating
On sea shores
Walking towards the
Destination of
Uncertainty

Alas! Balouch
Human tearing human
For self pleasure
Dominating all
Brutality, tyranny
Made beasts awed
No extremist freaks
No religious war
We all are refugees
Walking towards the
Destination of
Uncertainty

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A poet friend Shamenaz Shaikh ask me to write something on 'refugee crisis', although it's very different and painful subject which made my heart fill with sorrows but I tried, I hope it went well
