I Want To Be A Poem - Poem by Safi Hyder

I want to be a poem
To visit at least once my innate spirit and hidden soul
after uncovering the hard shell that has gone totally sore
gravely hampered by the futile and mundane chores
surrounded and besieged by diverse parasitical nodes
each detestably stuffed with wanton pride and raging robe
ever encouraging to remain a deceitful and devious force
oppressing and usurping the rights of one and whole
scavenging the wile and guile to attain utterly selfish goals

Once fully bare, clean and wholesome,
I will be delighted to see my own soul
pure and pristine as the driven snow
fresh and flawless as the morning dew
soft and supple as the ripened mellow
lighter than the breezes that barely blow
amply radiant to lighten the full moon's glow

Would I then be bound by the time and space?
Nay, I should traverse the cosmos with an unsatiablel gaze
wittingly pausing to relish the lovely yet esoteric maze
letting those myriad worlds captivate my senses in utter laze
covetously grasping the real meaning of Rumi and Faiz*
joyfully rejoicing the symphony of Mozart, the sage
and gleefully reliving the pleasant memory lanes
