Distance Wins - Poem by Prof Niamat Ali Murtazai
A competition started between man and distance
Man was for meeting and distance for distance.
Man built cities to keep all his clan there
But he had to travel and pay fare.
Man made mail to keep abreast with kith and kin
Distance broke bridges because he was to win.
Man made telephone to keep close to friends
But Distance brought more engagements in new trends.
Man made internet to be as close as possible
Distance brought more tensions with it to jostle.
Man created mobile to be in others’ heart
But cries are so loud in financial mart.
Distance leads hearts to so vast regions
And maintains distance in all seasons.
Time and death also help Distance in his match
Man’s wish to remain close ends up in a catch.
Man does not accept his concrete defeat
His past in memories begins to repeat.
Distance makes a laughter, and man a sigh
Distance is proud of length, but man looks high. (13-09-2015)
