How I Bleed And Live! - Poem by Abdul Wahab

Among words
Let silence live

As words are wastes
Silence is love

Let moon shine upon the tree
Though under it

Poverty dances like a crone
Yet the flowers are our dreams

And the leaves our lives

as if the blood of poor and weak
is sweeter than the blood of anybody else

and I am puzzled
and more puzzled
when I see at philosophy
destiny is a joker

fate is a buffoon
here logic devours logic

no beauty
no truth

irony of the fact is that
here lies permanently only paradox

and in surprise I bewilder
in excitement I wonder

and I live …
