Divorce - Poem by Shahabuddin Nagari

For long hours of night, we blamed each other
Sleepless went the night
Still we never acknowledged our faults
We waited ten years to see the flowers bloom
If flower pot grew undergrowth
We didn’t had time to clear those
Shrubs devoured the flowers
And many errors grew up like white-ants
Lest we have more stupidity
We have stuck our mouth with adhesive tape
Still it didn’t save, with your incessant speeches
Fence of family broke down like sand dunes
Roof shattered down in gusty winds
Fungus assemble on the oil painting of the bare wall
Cloudy sky or Sunny days are equal to us
Many distrust weighed on us like giant stone
How many days we will carry these trivial distrust
Let’s throw away all our dirty days
Let’s open our minds and become free.
