Foot Prints - Poem by Prof Niamat Ali Murtazai
I walked behind him on mountains
I got tired but reached the highest
Saw pleasure's and sorrow's fountains
And caverns fearful lowest.
I walked behind him in deserts
Dryness welcomed me with long hands
Fear follows even the experts
It seems life is sands, death is sands.
I followed him in deep deep seas
Where the end is not to be seen
Underground hills, animals, trees
The vast lord seems to be globe's dean.
I followed him in the blue sky
And found it burnt with human sigh
The sun, the moon and stars moved by
All of them also wished to die.
I followed him in human heart
Lo! the foot prints of Time were lost
Soul and body wished to depart
Time's house can be found at Life's cost.
